Uber services, in spite of their growing popularity, cannot be said to have covered all cities. Active in over 57 countries at the moment, there are still more than a handful of cities in which Uber services are not present. This might be a problem for intending drivers, riders and partners in other cities. Even more, this is an indication that there is still more work to be done for Uber as an organization.
Generally, being an Uber driver or partner is an ok paying and relatively simple business, making the terrains of the business very attractive. So it is only normal that after reading and hearing of this business on various platforms, that you are interested in getting Uber to come to you area. While there are no sure-fire ways to ‘force’ Uber to come to your area, there are certain things you can do to increase the chances of Uber becoming available in your city. See the two major tips below:
Downloading the Application
One of the simplest ways to increase the probability of Uber coming to your city is to download the Uber application, make an account, etc. It has been found true over time, that one major factor that decides whether or not Uber would consider starting its business in any new city is the number of sign-ups in such cities. So if you personally need Uber to come to your city, do your bit by signing up and telling your friends to tell their friends to do same.
Let’s take for example that a city where Uber isn’t available suddenly records thousands of Uber app downloads, a thousand signed up users and many attempted ride requests, there is a possibility that this will draw the attention of the folks at Uber. This may give Uber a push to start thinking about expanding their services in that city.
The second is a more direct approach. You can send an email to Uber’s official contact mail firstname.lastname@example.org, asking whether they have any plans to start up their services in your city – calling their attention to a growing number of people who wish for Uber to come to your city. Also, you could also try to get multiple people to compose and send such emails, as it will greatly increase the chances of it actually happening.
Also, we have received questions about controlling the type of Uber services that comes to your city but that isn’t really possible. Uber’s General Manager along with a team of experts is in charge of deciding which service is right for a particular city. They do this by considering its demographics. This is why you find that, in a city such as London, Uber started out with an expensive and luxurious service, UberLux, while it started out with the lower end UberX in many other cities. Such decisions are made only after examining the economy of the city in question and other demographic factors.
These are the major facts about having Uber come to your city. So if you wish to enjoy the services of Uber like in many other cities of the world, get to it, get your city running.
