Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard, Gresham…your Uber is arriving now!
Oregon is a hub for innovation–a place where new ideas flourish and entrepreneurs thrive. And, starting today at 10am, we are excited to announce that even more Oregonians will have access to the convenience and reliability of Uber.
To kick off our launch, our new friends Mayor Jerry Willey of Hillsboro, Mayor Denny Doyle of Beaverton, Mayor John Cook of Tigard, and Mayor Shane Bemis of Gresham will take a spin around the newest Uber cities in the Pacific Northwest!
Whether you are headed for a night out in downtown Beaverton or going out to meet friends in Gresham, Uber will be available at moment’s notice to get you to your destination safely and hassle-free.
WHAT IS uberX?
In Oregon, our ridesharing service uberX offers Uber convenience with prices up to 40% cheaper than a taxi. UberX driver partners have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four passengers. To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all uberX driver partners must undergo a rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX partner, drivers must pass:
- Undergo a screening process, including a driving and criminal history check
- Ongoing quality controls
- Vehicle safety inspections by a certified mechanic
As always, your safety and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides are backed by the driver’s insurance policy as well our corporate insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver and contribute to the quality with your feedback.
Take a free spin in an Uber, on us! If you don’t see an uberX at first, don’t worry! Availability may be limited while we’re offering free rides. Just refresh your Uber app after a few minutes to request a ride, and you’ll be on your way.
