"More than 3.8 million Aussies use the Uber app regularly to access convenient transport at the touch of a button. We’re so excited to announce that, from today, even more Aussies can benefit from safe, affordable rides as we celebrate our official launch in four regional cities across Victoria: North West (Horsham), Shepparton, Surf Coast, and Warrnambool.
We know that convenient transport options can be limited, especially during the evenings and on weekends. With residents of regional Victoria front of mind, we’re delighted to announce the roll-out of Uber in four new Victorian cities just in time for the busy summer season: perfect for locals who want more choice in how they travel. Uber will be particularly helpful ahead of community events such as the Horsham Country Music Festival, Rip Curl Pro near the Surf Coast, the May Racing Carnival in Warrnambool and Shepparton’s Chinese New Year Celebration 2019.
By launching Uber in these areas, we also welcome local drivers who will have complete flexibility to drive as and when it suits them. We hope that the opportunity to make some extra money will make a positive impact in the lives of locals.
We’re so excited by the positive reception of Uber in larger cities, and now we are looking forward to diversifying the transport options available to people living in regional areas too."
