Vegas Could Win Big With Uber
Everyone knows Las Vegas is a glittering global tourism hub and popular convention destination. This desert oasis boasts world-class restaurants, nightlife, shopping and gaming and Uber wants to help people who work and play here get around with faster, safer and more reliable rides.
Uber in Las Vegas would mean stylish, efficient transportation with the tap of an app, whether for business or pleasure. It would mean never again having to wait in a lengthy taxi line after taking in a show or winning big at the casino. It would mean never having to fumble for your wallet at the end of a ride.
Las Vegas should not be one of the last major U.S. cities without Uber’s superior service. But unfortunately, outdated statewide laws won’t allow us to serve the city’s almost 40 million annual visitors or the 2 million people who call the Las Vegas Metro area home.
Regulations mandating a one-hour minimum time limit and one-hour minimum fare (averaging $46) for towncars, regardless of the actual time or distance of your ride, are bad for consumers, bad for competition, and stifle much-needed innovation among Las Vegas transportation providers.
We can’t wait to bring Uber to Las Vegas and we know you’re excited too. Share your stories on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram about getting around other cities with Uber and why #VegasNeedsUber.

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
