Popular ridesharing app launches first service in Gloucester with an exclusive discount.

Gloucestershire sees its highly anticipated first launch of top ridesharing company, Uber, as the service begins operation in Gloucester.

Already well established in cities across the UK and the around the globe, Uber offers an easily accessible taxi service to customers through a mobile app.

Gloucester residents can access Uber now by downloading the app, adding a payment method and confirming a destination.

The app will then connect to local drivers who will agree to pick them up from a selected starting location, with the money automatically taken at the end of the trip.

Different to traditional taxi services, Uber customers can confirm and lock in a price for their journey right at the beginning, meaning the fee will not rise due to traffic or other travel delays — often making it a much more affordable option.

And to celebrate the launch, the transport service is offering a special discount offer — exclusively available for riders in Gloucester and neighbouring areas — of £20 off on your first two rides, which can be redeemed by adding the promo code HIGLOUCESTER to your account.
