Calgary, your Uber is arriving now!

December 6, 2016 / Calgary

Calgary, we’re back! Just in time for the holidays, Calgarians can once again enjoy the reliability and convenience of uberX as of 2pm today!

On November 28, Calgary City Council amended the existing vehicle-for-hire bylaw and made changes that permit Uber and other ridesharing services to operate within the city.

Ready to get riding? Here’s how:

  1. Download the Uber app for iOS, Windows, or Android.
  2. Enter your destination, then request.
  3. Meet your driver curbside– you’ll be able to track the exact location of your ride, and you’ll receive all the important details ahead of arrival, like contact info for the driver and the license plate details of the vehicle.
  4. Enjoy the ride! No need to worry about fumbling for cash– you’ll be charged directly to your chosen payment method when your trip is over and receive an emailed receipt.

PRO TIP: If you can’t connect with your Uber at first, don’t sweat it! Simply refresh your app after a few minutes and request again, you’ll be on your way in no time.

Thank you to all of the driver-partners, riders, and community friends for your patience and support throughout our journey back to town. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to serve Calgarians once again.

Now saddle up and let’s get riding.
