The City of Champions is tallying up another win as Uber hits the streets of Pittsburgh to change the way yinz’ get around. Uber, the mobile app connecting riders to drivers on-demand in over 70 cities worldwide, is now making its mark in The Steel City.

Steelers’ defensive end Cam Heyward, a Pittsburgh native, was the first person to take Uber for a spin through the Burgh’. He opened his Uber iPhone app, requested a ride and within minutes his uberX driver was on location.

Known in the locker room as “Wreck-it Ralph,” one thing Cam didn’t break by utilizing uberX was the bank. uberX is the ultra-reliable, cost-efficient ridesharing option from Uber. At prices cheaper than a taxi, it’s now easier than ever to get around Pittsburgh.

SAMPLE FARES
Downtown to Southside – $5
Southside to Shadyside – $7
Lawrenceville to Downtown – $10

Cam Heyward has officially given Uber his seal of approval and secured the coveted title of Pittsburgh Rider Zero.
