Uber has finally arrived in Geneva and uberX has been launched TODAY: better and cheaper!

Geneva is well known for its Water Fountain, unique watch expertise, United Nations, chocolates and location in the heart of Europe. People in Geneva will all agree that their city is different… so is Uber.

Founded in San Francisco in 2009, Uber is today operating in 200+ cities and over 45 countries worldwide offering to connect people with a private driver at the tap of a button. Anytime! Anywhere! Cozy! Pleasant! Without cash! And with simplicity!

Our “Rider Zero”, talented (and handsome) singer and composer Bastian Baker took the inaugural Geneva uberX ride.  Bastian is already very familiar with Uber and had experienced many classy rides in Zurich, Paris and in several American cities. “Uber saved me more than once throughout the world. Very happy to be Uber’s Rider Zero. Welcome to Geneva, Uber, it’s about time!”

New to Uber? It is very simple. Here’s all you need to do to get started:
1. Download the Uber app to your iPhone, Android or Windows device
2. Open the Uber app, request a car, and within minutes a pretty car will show up
3. No needless waiting: you can see where your car is on the live map. Upon arrival of your driver you receive a push-notification so you can maximize your own time.
4. At the end of your comfortable ride, just get out of the car. No need for cash. You will receive an email with a receipt within minutes.

PRO TIP: Use the promo code UberLoveGVA and get CHF 25.00 off your first ride with us. While we have sweet rides for you to connect to on the road today, there might be limited availability. Be unemotional with us in the first weeks, we will be getting you connected to as many drivers as possible.
