Uber and Metro Cincinnati – Rounding out your commute
Since Uber’s arrival in Cincinnati, we’ve made it our mission to help riders move around the Queen City reliably and affordably. In the process, we’ve changed the way Cincinnatians experience their city. We continue these efforts today through a new partnership with Metro transit service.
For some Cincinnatians, getting to or from the Metro bus stops can be difficult, but Uber complements public transit to help solve this problem. Commuters can request an Uber wherever they are to start and complete their Metro journeys with ease.
“Many of our customers have expressed their interest in using ridershare services like Uber in conjunction with their Metro trip to bridge the gap between service hours and locations,” said Metro CEO & General Manager Dwight A. Ferrell. “We’ve seen the significant success Uber has had with other major public transit providers. We believe Uber is an ideal partner to help us meet the needs of our customers, ultimately, making their experience as convenient and enjoyable as possible.”
Many local bus riders are already combining Uber and Metro to reach their destinations. This past year alone, Uber riders took thousands of trips to or from Cincinnati Metro stops, and these multimodal travelers are growing in number. Whether you’re heading to work, home, or just exploring your city, Uber is the smartest way to your Metro stop and back.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
