Uber app

Uber will go live in Gladstone from Thursday, just in time for the silly season and summer activities.

As announced in October, Uber is launching in multiple regional Australian communities. Gladstone locals can now download the Uber app to book rides.

The company said Uber compliments existing transport options and meets high demand from community members.

In 2018 alone we have seen hundreds of thousands of app opens across regional communities, and Gladstone is no exception.

Driver partners will begin accepting rides through the Uber app in Gladstone starting from 3:00PM.

Alex Golden, State Manager, Queensland for Uber, said "we’re thrilled to bring ridesharing to Gladstone, providing another safe and affordable option for locals to get around. We know people have been calling out for ridesharing for a while now, and are excited to respond to this demand".

"With a safe and affordable way to get from A to B, we believe Uber will provide Gladstone locals with an easier way to get around and will compliment local transport networks.

"By providing a safe and reliable ride at the push of a button - no matter the time or place - ridesharing is helping make our towns better connected, easier and safer places to get around" he finished.
