If you hate getting around Melbourne as much as I hate getting around Sydney, you’re in luck: Uber is now officially live in the Melbourne capital.
Uber went live early last week after trialling the service with a soft-launch since 7 January.
The cars Uber is using in Melbourne are a mite different to those in Sydney. Right now in the harbour city, Uber has a fleet which includes the Holden Caprice and a handful of Mercedes Benz four-wheel drives. In Melbourne, riders can expect to travel around in the Holden Caprice, Chrysler 300S or an as yet unnamed Lexus.
New users can score a $20 Uber credit to use in Melbourne by entering the code “melbournestealth” when registering. You’re welcome.
