13 Dec Get ready Gladstone, Uber is now available!
Launching last Thursday, December 6, Uber the ride-sharing service is now available in Gladstone— just in time for the silly season and summer activities. Gladstone locals can now download the Uber app to book rides. Driver partners begun accepting rides through the Uber app in Gladstone starting from last Thursday at 3pm.
State Manager, Queensland for Uber, Alex Golden said the service will complement existing transport options and will meet the high demand from community members. In 2018 alone Uber has seen hundreds of thousands of app opens across regional communities, and Gladstone is no exception. “We’re thrilled to bring ridesharing to Gladstone, providing another safe and affordable option for locals to get around. We know people have been calling out for ridesharing for a while now, and are excited to respond to this demand,” Alex said. “With a safe and affordable way to get from A to B, we believe Uber will provide Gladstone locals with an easier way to get around and will complement local transport networks. By providing a safe and reliable ride at the push of a button – no matter the time or place – ridesharing is helping make our towns better connected, easier and safer places to get around.”
