We’re super pumped to introduce a safe, reliable and affordable way to get around Wollongong from 12pm today.

With the launch of uberX, Wollongong locals will be able to push a button and get a ride across town within minutes. See our full service area here

We’re confident ridesharing will be a positive addition to the region’s transport mix and help take pressure off existing options during peak periods, especially at the weekend.

Drivers ready to hit the road

We’ve been blown away by the positive reception from the Wollongong community, proving the City of Innovation is much more than just a slogan.

More than 100 entrepreneurial Wollongong residents have jumped at the opportunity to earn some extra income driving on their own schedule.

They’re ready to take you where you need to be, so download the Uber app now and start moving around the city in style.
