For those not familiar, Uber is a mobile app that lets you request a Private Driver or TAXI at the touch of a button.

In almost 15 months in Chicago, Uber has driven thousands of Chicagoans to their favorite restaurants, kept them stylish en route to killer events, or gotten them home safely after a late night in the office. Uber has even helped with a few ‘Rides of Glory’ – a morning ride that comes only a few hours after a late night ride to the same location. It should come as no surprise that River North and Lincoln Park had the highest concentration of those types of rides :).

During our time in Chicago, we’ve felt extremely welcomed by Chicago’s amazing bar and restaurant scene – especially the Rockit Ranch family. It’s been great to partner up on numerous events, including our Restaurant Week special in February, where we provided free rides to Sunda during lunch. We’re excited to bring Chicago even more exciting promotions over the next few months including the upcoming ‘Uber Sleigh’. Throughout December we’ll be collecting toys in Ubers, and eventually donating them to charity.

Unfortunately, recently proposed Chicago regulations would prohibit Uber’s Black car service from operating in Chicago. In addition to preventing Uber from bringing the style and safety to your transportation, these regulations would limit the earning potential of over 1,000 drivers who partner with Uber. By restricting the use of technology in the transportation industry, these regulations also raise concerns for anyone who believes that innovation is the key to Chicago’s future growth and status as a truly world-class city.

Even with that minor roadblock, we’re working hard to ensure that Uber will be here for a long time. Plus, the support from Chicagoans has been amazing! If you haven’t taken a ride, sign up here and receive $10 off your first ride!
