Saddle Up Houston, uberX Has Finally Arrived!

For a limited time, Houston will get to experience the ride of the future! uberX – Uber’s ridesharing option – has just rolled into H-Town. Better yet? It’s FREE!*

Houston basketball legend T. J. Ford, already an authority on balling out, was the first to try the service last night. He opened his iPhone app and within minutes his sleek ride whisked him away to his next appointment.

Why are we only here for a limited time? Mayor Parker and the City Council have to update regulations to make sure Uber can be in Houston to stay. So share the love with @anniseparker and @houstontxdotgov on Twitter and tell them why you think #HoustonNeedsUber permanently.
