Ubers are hitting the roads of OKC, y’all!

Basketball season started storming through Oklahoma City this week, but this Thunderous news wasn’t the only thing making noise – secret Ubers hit the roads of OKC, transforming the way Oklahomans get around town!

Uber, the mobile app connecting riders to drivers on-demand in over 45 cities worldwide, is now in the The Big Friendly in a big way!

Nick Collison scored the perfect drive when he requested the first uberX ride in OKC at the touch of a button. Within minutes, Nick’s driver arrived to take him to practice, earning him the title of Oklahoma City Rider Zero.

uberX, the cost-efficient ridesharing option from Uber, offers reliable and quality service at prices cheaper than a taxi. Yes, you heard that right! Getting ‘round town is now easier and faster than ever before.

So, GAME ON, Oklahoma City! Please remember that we are still in our testing phase, and there may be times when availability is limited. If you don’t see an uberX at first – don’t worry! Just check the app again after a few minutes to request a ride.

What is Ridesharing? 

We’re partnering with drivers like you and me who will be driving their own cars. All drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process (but are not licensed as professional chauffeurs), which includes:

  • Stringent background check

  • Driving history check

  • In-person interview and screening

  • A city knowledge exam

  • On-going quality controls

Bottom line: our riders’ security and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides continue to be backed up by our corporate insurance policy, and riders always have the option to rate every driver and improve the system with their feedback.

Cheers,
