Houston – it’s time for action.

In 2013, Houston was named America’s next great global city. Unfortunately, a lack of modern transportation options are handcuffing that future. To truly become a global city, Houston needs global transportation options like Uber.


The time has come for Mayor Annise Parker and the City Council to finally stand up for you—not the taxi special interests—and pave the way for efficiency, style, and innovation in Houston transportation.

This past weekend, you were able to experience the Uber magic with free uberX, but unless Mayor Parker and the City Council stand up for change, Uber won’t be in Houston for long. Make your voice heard—sign the petition and demand that Mayor Parker and the City Council take a stand for you.

Under the current regulations, you can’t catch a sedan ride in Houston for less than $70—even if it’s only a 15-minute trip. Oh—and you have to arrange that ride at least 30 minutes in advance. That doesn’t put consumers first and simply isn’t the Uber way; we connect users with the best ride at the best possible price right when they need it.

Tomorrow, the City Council will finally discuss changes to those antiquated regulations. Come show your support at City Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 10 am at 901 Bagby Street and sign up to speak! Tell Mayor Parker and the City Council why #HoustonNeedsUber.

Now is the time.  Sign the petition and share why #HoustonNeedsUber @Uber_Houston with the Mayor @anniseparker and City Council @Houstontxdotgov.

Houston—it’s on.

Uber on,
Team Uber Houston
