Secret Uber Jawns Roaming in Philly

 

Oh Snap! Rider Zero in the birthplace of America has emerged. At 8:15 this morning, First Round Capital’s Managing Partner Josh Kopelman (sporting a Flyers cap) whipped out his iPhone, requesting a secret Uber car from Philly’s Rittenhouse Square. Gibson showed up in a slick, black Cadillac Escalade with “wooder” in the back, escorting Josh to catch his train. Uber’s secret *testing* phase on the streets of Philadelphia has begun!

 

Although there are a few cars on the road, please keep in mind that Uber Philly is still in research mode. The experience you have during our *secret* Uber phase *may not blow your mind the way it will once we officially launch (though likely will). We’re still in the process of building our supply and hitting the perfect price point, so feedback is welcomed! Please send your thoughts to supportphilly@uber.com or share your experience with us on Twitter @Uber_Philly. Stay tuned for launch updates. Warning: Adventurous Riders Only.

Brotherly love,

Team @Uber_Philly
