Uber reaches 18 cities in Romania. The app is now available in Arad

From this afternoon, Uber will be available in Arad. Uber has also been present in Alba Iulia since the beginning of May.

From June 2 to June 5, new Arad users can use the discount code HELLORAD for free UberX rides, for 4 rides up to 11 Lei per ride.

With Arad on the list of cities where the app is available, Uber has now reached 18 cities in Romania: Bucharest, Timișoara, Cluj, Brașov, Iași, Constanța, Craiova, Galați, Pitești, Ploiești, Oradea, Brăila, Sibiu, Buzău , Bacău, Râmnicu Vâlcea, Alba Iulia and Arad.

As in all other Romanian cities, in Arad Uber only cooperates with licensed drivers. Uber is launching into the city with UberX, the most popular service, offering access to affordable and safe rides with just a few minutes of waiting.

“We are delighted to reach Arad, one of the most important cities in the west of the country. We believe that people and tourists will move around the city much more easily. People are increasingly interested in alternative transport, and we are delighted to be able to make this possible for the people of Arad by bringing them Uber technology that connects passengers and drivers and improves the safety of their journeys. – said Ana Maria Borlovan, Country Operations Manager Uber Romania.

More than a ride

Ride safety is a priority for Uber, which is why the company is constantly working on new features within the app. The rides offered through Uber are provided by approved partners who must meet a few requirements to join the platform. In addition, the application offers passengers several security functions. Sharing rides with loved ones, PIN verification or security buttons are just a few of them.
