Good news for taxi-riders following the announcement this week that Uber will soon be coming to the Whitsundays, opening up the region and meeting the need for increased demand.

More than 3.9 million Australian’s are already using the ridesharing app and Uber is now ready to expand its business model into the regional areas.

The company, which has been operating in Australia for the past 12 years, is now looking for Uber Drivers and appeals for those interested to register.

Whitsundays Mayor, Ry Collins, welcomed the upcoming launch: 

“We know many of our residents have long requested another transport option to get from A to B, so I was excited to hear of Uber’s plans to launch here in the Whitsundays,” he said.

“Any business that makes the lives of locals easier, while offering another earning opportunity, is certainly welcomed in Whitsundays. It is an exciting development for our community.”
