Get ready to kick off 2015 in style! From champagne toasts to clubs' close, we're here to ensure you have a safe and reliable ride all night long. Check out our countdown of best practices to ride into the New Year like a pro.
We are proud to announce that we have a commitment from Portland officials to create a regulatory framework for Uber within the next three months.
We are so humbled by the tremendously warm welcome we've received from riders and drivers in and around Portland. From late night tweets of support from riders getting home safely to the thousands of signatures on our petition to hanging out with drivers and riders at our recent #PDXneedsUber party, it’s been great to see Portlanders from all walks of life come together to show their support in such a short amount of time. Our team hit the streets to hear from our amazing partner drivers in PDX. The best part of spending time with so many drivers in one day? Everything!
Every day Uber riders from neighboring communities are being dropped off in Portland and we have been working with the Mayor’s office for over a year to get them a ride back. We’re eager to work with City and State leaders to bring the impact of the Uber platform to Portland and cut down on drunk driving, serve underserved communities, increase transit to small business and help drive the local economy.
Portland, you’ve used the Uber app to get some #UberIceCream, donate canned goods and to zip around Beaverton, Gresham, Hillsboro, and Tigard. Now, it’s time to have it all: your Uber is arriving now.
We launched in Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard, and Gresham with a warm welcome from all four Mayors. In this short time, hundreds of people in the Portland suburbs have connected with safe and reliable Uber rides to get from place to place. We believe that being part of a community also means giving back. As we continue to become part of these great communities, we are actively looking for ways we can leverage the Uber app technology to make a greater impact right here.
It’s been awhile since we announced our intention to bring Uber to Portland, so we wanted to share a note about our progress and how you can help us make the dream of connecting Rose City riders with safe, stylish, and reliable transportation a reality.
On Friday, July 19, we'll be delivering sweet treats all over Portland. Just tap the Uber app!
