Is Uber Coming to Tacoma? (UPDATED)
A brand new twitter account and one tweet is getting a few folks excited. Uber, the rapidly expanding not-a-taxi and ridesharing service is considering Tacoma. Uber already operates in more than 30 US cities and 30 countries. This is the first time we've heard of them looking at our city.
Hey Tacoma! We've got our sights set on you...— Uber Tacoma (@Uber_Tacoma) March 12, 2014
The company is currently in the middle of a very public battle with the City of Seattle. We've reached out for additional information on the expanison and will let you know what we hear.
UPDATE (3/26/2014): We just read this from Uber (at blog.uber.com/tacoma):
Reliable, safe, affordable rides will be just a tap away at the beginning of April. Uber has actually been completing trips in your area for some time, but now we are giving you the attention you deserve. Dedicated supply, your very own twitter count, happy hours, partnerships and more.
Do you have a big event coming up? Own a bar or restaurant?
Let us know! We would love to partner.
