Uber has finally launched its services in Penang.

Uber is a smartphone app that connects you to a licensed driver within minutes. It is safe, reliable, and affordable.

By launching its services in Penang, Uber aims to provide a safer and more reliable transportation alternative to driving.

Uber was launched in San Fransisco in 2010. The service is now available in over 315 cities in 58 countries. Uber first launched its service in two cities in Malaysia; Kuala Lumpur in 2013 and Johor Bahru in 2014.

At the official event to announce the launch of Uber in Penang, Kenny Choong, Uber Everywhere General Manager for Malaysia said, “Uber is excited to launch in Penang, our third city in Malaysia. Since we launched in Kuala Lumpur last year, the response we’ve received has been overwhelming and we continue to see rapid growth. In fact with the launch of Penang, Malaysia becomes the first country in SEA to have 3 cities that are moving with Uber. This is a testament to the huge demand by both riders and driver partners as we look forward to taking transportation to a new level in the city.”

To book your Uber driver now, download the application on your smartphone.
