We’re excited to announce the launch of Uber Explore, a new product in the Uber app that will allow customers to browse and book experiences – including dinner reservations, live events, and other fun activities.
When opening the Explore tab in the Uber app, riders will see places recommended to them based on categories including food & drink, art & culture, nightlife, music & shows, and more, and they’ll be able to see reviews, photos, and directions. Customers will be able to enjoy:
- One click rides: The “ride there now” functionality allows customers to tap a button and easily book a ride with their pre-populated destination.
- Personalization: You’ll see suggestions for experiences based on your past use of the Uber and Uber Eats apps. We use your favorite places to go and things to eat to suggest the best places to explore in your city automatically.
- Uber Explore Offers: We’ve selected some of the best places to explore, and for the top restaurants & bars, you’ll get 15% off your rides up to $10 for now. The deals will always be changing based on what’s popular in your area.
- Seamless purchases: It will be easy to purchase tickets to events and experiences because you can pay conveniently with your Uber Wallet & Payment profile.
Today, we’re live in 14 U.S. cities across the U.S. (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Memphis, Minneapolis – St. Paul, New Orleans, New Jersey, Upstate New York, Orlando, San Antonio, San Francisco, Seattle) and one international city (Mexico City). Keep an eye on your app – we plan to expand Explore to more cities in the coming weeks and months, along with more event opportunities and experiences offerings.
