Yesterday was a big day for Uber in Nevada! Northern Nevadans asked for more  convenient, safe and affordable transportation options like Uber.  And, yesterday we  began the day celebrating with our fourth generation Nevada Rancher and State Senator James Settelmeyer.As one of Uber’s biggest champions in Nevada, we were thrilled to have him saddle up as our Rider Zero in Reno!

James Settelmeyer

Senator Settelmeyer is a lifelong resident of Northern Nevada — and along with carrying on his proud family ranching business, remains dedicated to the community he serves, understanding the way innovative technologies like Uber can bring greater freedom and economic opportunities to communities like Reno and Carson City.  

Senator Settelmeyer had this to say about Uber: “I, along with thousands of other proud Northern Nevadans, am thrilled that the launch of Uber is finally here. We worked hard to make this day a reality and now riders from Reno to Carson City and beyond can depend on Uber to get them from one great destination to another.”

Reno, we are so excited to be here; we can’t wait to see you on the road.
