EUGENE, Oregon – On Uber plans to launch service in Eugene starting Thursday, September 6.

Alejandro Chouza, general manager for Uber in the Pacific Northwest, said they are surprised they will soon be turning on rideshare service in Eugene. According to him, for anyone not yet familiar with the app, they’ll find it convenient and easy to use. It is hard, it takes a tap to request a ride.

A ceremonial lunch is planned with Mayor Lucy Vinis at the Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant, 2034 W 2nd Ave.

According to Matt Sayre, Vice President of the Technology Association of Oregon, Uber begins operations Thursday in Eugene-Springfield and are immensely thankful to City staff and partners that have helped the community reach the exciting milestone.

As launching the opening, Uber offers Eugene riders up to $5 off for 2 rides through midnight September 20 with the promo code “UberEugene.”

Uber provides an alternative to traditional taxi services and is seen as a way to prevent drinking and driving.

Eugene modified city codes to allow for the service to operate there.

“I am excited that our community will be able to take advantage of rideshare services like those offered by Uber,” said Mayor Vinis. “We have heard the call from many residents, especially students and the business community, for expanded rideshare services to help ensure convenient and safe travel at all hours across the metropolitan area. City staff is at the ready to begin processing driver signups. I’m glad the day has come!”

Uber plans two driver information sessions next week at Coffee Plant Roasters, across from Les Schwab on 11th Avenue.

The sessions are on Wednesday, September 5, from noon to 3 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
