July Fourth #UberProTips

Happy Independence Day, Portland! There’s no need to get behind the wheel this weekend. It’s easier to enjoy the celebration when a safe ride home is one tap away.

Since we began operating in Portland in April, we’ve seen that demand for rides spikes as bars shut down.


To keep Portland’s streets safer this 4th of July, we’re working with Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Help support this mission by leaving your keys at home and taking the pledge to not drink and drive this weekend.

It only takes a minute to make an impact that lasts a lifetime.

When raising your glass to America, please remember to get home safe by following these pro-tips:

Go Big or Go Home
Just in time for the fireworks, we are launching Uber XL!  Now you and your friends don’t have to think twice about getting home. Enjoy the comfort and extra room of a ride that will accommodate your whole entourage at a low-cost price. For rates and availability, check out our blog.

Make sure you’re in the right Uber
Once a driver is headed toward you, take a peek in the app to double check that you have the right ride. Driver name, car make, model and license plate number…oh my!

Estimate your fare
No surprises here! You can always estimate your fare before requesting a ride.

Surge Drop
Requesting a ride during our super busy time? Well, what goes up must come down. Get notified when surge pricing ends.
