May 23, 2019 / New Zealand

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore this underwater playground

Get set to embark on an awesome ocean adventure with scUber, the world’s first rideshare submarine on the Great Barrier Reef. Created in partnership with Tourism & Events Queensland, this exclusive experience will be available for a limited time through the Uber app from May 27 to June 18, 2019.

Uber is offering a limited number of people the chance to delve into the depths of one of the world’s greatest natural wonders – the Great Barrier Reef – and explore a breathtaking underwater playground.

We want to showcase the incredible Great Barrier Reef with this once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore the world’s largest ecosystem.

There are two ways to experience scUber: for participating countries, you can enter into the global competition; or riders in selected Queensland cities will have the opportunity to request a scUber ride directly in the app. Please note that only one trip for two will be available daily in each location. These numbers are strictly limited so availability cannot be guaranteed.

Win a scUber ride

To celebrate the launch of scUber, Uber and Tourism & Events Queensland are offering the scUber experience to one lucky winner and a friend from each of the following countries: UK, France, USA, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. (Note: competition excludes riders from Quebec, Canada.)

To enter, go to scUberQueensland.com and tell us in 25 words or less why you should experience the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef with scUber. Full terms are available through the website.

Protecting the reef

The ongoing preservation and sustainable protection of the Great Barrier Reef is one of global importance. Uber is proud to announce their partnership with the Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef to support their protection and conservation initiatives for the world’s largest ecosystem.

Uber is committed to helping protect this global icon by getting people out of their personal cars and into more efficient modes of transport, such as bikes, scooters, shared rides and public transport.

We believe that by influencing changes to how people move around their cities, we can help to reduce carbon emissions and improve the health and longevity of natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef.

Uber will be donating $100,000 to Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef to help support their reef conservation programs. Uber will also donate the equivalent value of every scUber ride taken to Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef.
