During the last month, you may have caught one of our secret Ubers as we were testing in Auckland. We’ve been tweaking and tinkering and we’re ready to call Auckland home.

Dear Auckland, Uber has officially launched.

We threw a little celebration over the weekend at Skycity, with some help from our friends at Hyundai, Stella Artois and Grey Goose. We’ve enjoyed working with all of you to create uberX, a low cost, reliable service that now offers rides in Ponsonby, Parnell, the city and Mount Eden. As we grow, the service will extend further; we’re looking forward to providing Uber service to more and more of Auckland. If you’ve got any questions on pricing, or service area, or you just want to run a fare quote, you can visit our city page here.

If you’re new to Uber, now’s the time to try us out! Just download the app to iPhone or Android, create an account and enter the code “UBERAUCKLANDISHERE” for $20 off your first ride!

We want to hear from you on The Tweets, The Gram and The Book, and if you’ve ever got a question or some feedback, you can find us at supportauckland@uber.com.

We’re very much looking forward to seeing you soon :)
