In the wake of the recent events surrounding Uber, I think it’s time we had a discussion about what I once called my favourite ride sharing service. Has Uber’s service been declining lately? Or is it just one terribly unlucky streak for them in Malaysia?
From my personal experiences, I have to say, it’s the former.
UPDATE: Police has arrested the Uber driver that was involved in the robery. Reported to have existing criminal history.
On Sunday evening, a lady was allegedly robbed at knifepoint by an Uber driver. This occurred while she was taking a ride home from Mid Valley. According to the police report, there were two men in the car and they have forced her to surrender all her valuables before dropping her off by the roadside.
If you think about driving into KL on a busy weekday, you probably expect crazy jams and the hassle of looking for parking. Instead of driving, why not take an Uber instead? For two weeks, Uber is offering flat-rate 99 sen rides for short trips within the Klang Valley.
Need a break? Here’s your chance to win an impromptu holiday trip on demand. Uber is organising a one-day only UberHOLIDAY campaign in partnership with Qatar Airways. You could be among the lucky 3 requestors to win an instant holiday for two to Barcelona.
Uber is doing something special today in conjunction with its #UberTWELVE Christmas campaign. After introducing UberKucing in September, you can request chicks on demand for today only.
In time for the year-end holiday season, Uber has reduced its fixed fare to/from KL International Airport to RM60. This is a RM15 reduction from its current RM75/trip fare on UberX.
Uber has evolved at a fast pace and it’s time they revamp its official app. With new functions like scheduled rides, fixed fares and multiple ride options being introduced, the current app layout has started to feel cluttered.
As time is precious and everyone needs to get going as quickly as possible, Uber is releasing a new version of its app that emphasises on the “where to”? That’s the first step and the rest will naturally fall into place.
Need a cool coffee fix? Uber and Starbucks will be delivering Frappucinos on demand on Friday, 21st October 2016. This will be taking place in all 6 Uber cities in Malaysia which includes Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor Bahru, Ipoh, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.
Good news Kuala Lumpur, Uber is rolling out upfront fares when you request uberX rides in our nation’s capital city.
Probably the most wanted Uber feature is finally here. The driver on demand service is now letting you book rides in advance. So whether you’re catching a flight or heading out for a meeting, you can plan your Uber rides early without breaking a sweat.
