Guangzhou became the trade and manufacturing capital of China by being really good at getting things done. That said, getting around this big city isn’t always easy, but Uber is committed to bringing the full experience of comfort, style, and flexibility to its third city in China.

Uber can connect you with a high-quality ride at the touch of a button on your smartphone. Within minutes, a courteous driver will pick you up and take you where you need to go in a classy sedan, no advance planning necessary.

We think it makes to have access to transportation when you need it, rather than planning your life around transportation. It’s impossible to predict whether an afternoon meeting at T.I.T. Innovation Park will go long; a dinner reservation in Taojin will be moved to Taikoo Hui; or a casual drink at Xingguo Lu will develop into a spontaneous night of club-hopping.

Sounds great, now how do you get some Uber? Quick steps below:

  1. Download the Uber app on your iPhone or Android device

  2. Register with your credit card and enter the code: UBERGZ (One free ride up to RMB200, valid before February 2, 2014)

  3. Set the pin at your preferred pick-up location and request a ride – Uber will let you know exactly when your car will arrive

Uber, which launched in San Francisco in 2010, is now available in over 60 cities across the globe. It is the ultimate on-demand private driver experience allowing you to get a luxury ride within minutes, fully equipped with Wi-Fi, water and phone chargers. There is no need to pay cash. Simply request, sit-back and relax.

Note that during this initial testing phase for Guangzhou, service will be concentrated primarily in Tianhe, ZhuJiang New Town, and Taojin, and availability outside these areas may be limited. During registration, have your Visa or MasterCard ready.

Don’t forget to check out Uber Guangzhou’s Instagram and Weibo to see what the GZ team is up to! Lastly, Uber GZ is hiring. We’re looking for a General Manager and Community Manager. Don’t be shy, we’d love to hear from you, so please share your feedback or introduce a candidate to us at supportGZ@uber.com.

Uber on,
