When we launched Uber in Cebu, we had a vision of getting people where they needed to be, at the tap of a button. We offered a unique, technology-driven, and real-time solution to urban mobility – giving Cebuano riders access to safe, convenient, and affordable transportation powered by partner-drivers to whom we offered flexible earning opportunities.
Now, thousands of riders and hundreds of drivers later, we’ve reached numerous milestones and have made ourselves more accessible, from being the first city in the world to offer cash payment options to all riders, to offering the most affordable rides ever for uberX, and being part of a global on-demand stunt with #UberIceCream, among others.
But enough of us — let’s talk about you. Throughout the past 12 months we’ve moved and been moved by countless riders and drivers, who all that come from different walks of life. We’ve helped Cebuanos pursue their passions, fulfill their goals, and touch other people’s lives. Naa ang Uber bisan asa, bisan unsa.
As we close our first year in Cebu, we want to thank all our riders and drivers who have been with us throughout this journey — from your first trip to your most recent, and everything in between and everything that follows. We want to also acknowledge the riders and drivers who have been with us ever since day one, and still continue to stay.
At the end of the day, all we wanted was to move cities by moving people, but in the process, you have also moved us. Thank you very being part of this journey, and we look forward to the years to come.
