We’re rolling out on-demand ice cream trucks this Friday!

Uber is about choice. Whether it’s a towncar, an SUV, or an on-demand mariachi band we’re all about giving you what you want, when you want it and EVERYONE wants ice cream.

In honor of National Ice Cream Month, our teams in Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington DC are putting ice cream trucks on the road.

How does it work?

  • You can request ice cream by selecting the ‘ice cream cone icon’ in your Uber app.
  • Set the location where you want the ice cream truck to show up and tap ‘request ice cream delivery here.’
  • You’ll receive an ETA and be able to communicate with the driver.
  • The ice cream truck will deliver five ice creams (you will have the option to order more when the truck arrives).
  • We’ll bill your credit card card on file $12 for each bundle you order and hook you up with some sweet Uber swag.

 

What kind of ice cream can I expect?

Each city is working with a variety of local ice cream trucks so the ice cream will vary, but trust us, it’s all gooooooood.

 

What else do I need to know?

  • If your request doesn’t go through, keep trying! There’s plenty of ice cream to go around.
  • Tweeting? Capture your ice cream experience on video and upload to YouTube. Tweet with #OMGUBERICECREAM or share on Facebook and tag Uber. The creators of our favorite and the one with the most views will receive Uber weekend passes (up to $200).

I scream! You scream! Just tap the app for ice cream!
