Global Leaders and delegates alike have flocked to Brisbane this week for the G20 Summit. While Brisbane navigates road closures and the traffic-stopping motorcades of the likes of Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, it’s your turn to be on the other side of the glass!

TODAY from 10 am – 4 pm Uber is giving you the chance to Ride Like A President! Ride around Brisbane in your very own motorcade – the Ubercade!

What’s an Ubercade?

A line up of three black vehicles escorting an Uber rider: YOU! Heads will turn as you ride around town in a sleek sedan, flanked by two SUVs with your very own “Uber Secret Service Agents.”

The best part? Ubercade is FREE!


  1. On Thursday 13th November from 10am – 4pm, open your Uber app and select the “Ubercade” view
  2. Check the ETA and hit “REQUEST Ubercade
  3. Share your ride using the hashtag #Ubercade

*The Ubercade is designed to let you Ride Like a President, not rush to an important meeting. If you need to travel from A to B, please book uberX.
**Ubercade rides will be in high demand with limited availability.
***Ubercade will avoid Brisbane Metro including all G20 exclusion zones and high traffic areas.

Request your Ubercade today to Ride Like A President!
