Sunderland, your Uber is arriving now

April 22, 2016 / United Kingdom

We’re excited to announce that we’re now officially on the road in Sunderland! So with one tap you can ride in style without breaking the bank. From 4pm today, you’ll be able to use Uber to request a car at the touch of a button.

So whether you’re planning a night out, stopping for a spot of lunch or catching the match, you’ll never be more than a tap away from a reliable ride. You’ll find Uber is a great way to stretch your budget, for example, a journey from Park Lane Metro station to The Stadium of Light could cost around £3.50.*
