#MTLLOVESUBER (Uber loves you back!)

While its only been a few short weeks since we began our testing period here in Montreal, our team has been hard at work getting our platform ready for launch.

It’s clear that Montreal Loves Uber. We want to show you how much Uber loves you back. So let’s make it official. This week marks our official launch of uberTAXI, and we’re kicking it off in style : A WEEK OF FREE uberTAXI for EVERYONE IN MONTREAL!

Every Montrealer is invited to use Uber and get 3 FREE rides (up to $20) Wednesday November 13th 11AM – Wednesday November 20th 11AM. 


The season of gifting is almost upon us, so give your friends, family and anyone you know the gift of FREE by sharing Uber.


Recently, local hockey star Alex Galchenyuk had a chance to give uberTAXI its inaugural ride.

So what did he like best? Many of the same features you can enjoy :

  • The convenience of knowing where your car is and how long until it arrives
  • Trips are billed directly to your credit card following a ride
  • You can hop in and out without ever reaching for your wallet
  • Responsive rider support

These are exciting times Montreal! Let us know how the first ride goes by sending us a note to supportmontreal@uber.com


  • No special codes to enter – just download the app and request a taxi before the promotion expires at midday on Wednesday, November 20th at 11AM.
  • This is for local rides, up to $20 each. Riders will start paying if the fare exceeds that amount.
  • Max 3 rides per Uber account.
  • New and existing users are eligible.
