YANGON Uber, the smartphone app that is transforming urban mobility across the world, is launching in Myanmar today.

The world’s largest on-demand mobility platform will be available in Yangon offering locals and tourists safe, reliable and affordable rides at the push of a button. For driver partners, the app creates flexible economic opportunities by connecting them with riders quickly and efficiently.

We are excited to launch in Myanmar, serving riders, drivers and the city of Yangon. The city has shown itself a leader in embracing innovation and progressive regulations,” said Michael Brown, Regional General Manager, Asia Pacific. “I want to thank the government for the warm welcome it has extended to Uber, innovation and new economic opportunities.

When you ask for an Uber via the app, you will receive important details, such as the contact information of the driver and the license plate number of the car. You can track the location of the driver via the app and even share details about your trip with friends and family, to let them know you are getting home safe.
