Thank you, Phuket! See you next high season!

March 31, 2015 / Phuket

In less than 6 months, we did something that no one thought was possible – build a reliable and affordable transportation alternative on an island that never had one. We want to thank Phuket for welcoming us with open arms in our first tourist high season and thank our local driver partners for delivering reliable rides and quality service to our Uber riders traveling from around the world! Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve accomplished this past high season!
