For one day only, Uber has teamed up with Volkswagen as well as more than 50 local celebrities to bring Uber riders a very special experience, all for a good cause across 32 various charities. Get driven and have fun bantering with some of your favourite local celebs in their favourite Volkswagen vehicles!
These celebs have generously volunteered to drive on the Uber platform for a day to give riders a truly Uber experience while giving back to an array of good causes. The total donation collected will then be matched by both Uber and Volkswagen. Then, the amount will be donated to their selected charity to bring joy to those in need during the holiday season. Not all the celebs are driving alone! You may just get lucky and get two or three celebrity stars for your ride.
All celebrities will be on the roads and will be driving for an average of 4 -5 hours each, starting at 9.30 am today, till about 4.30 pm. The cars that they will be driving will be a Volkswagen model of their choice, which include the following models; Scirocco, Tiguan, Touareg, Beetle, Polo, Passat, Golf, Jetta and Cross Touran.
Don’t worry about your safety! The celebrities were given the chance to get used to their cars a few days before the actual event and full Uber partner driver training was provided to them. Both drivers and their vehicles are also covered by the necessary insurances for the day.
To get a chance to be driven around by your favourite celebrity, open your Uber app, slide right to UberVW, set your desired pickup location and click Request Celebrity. The app is available on all Android and iPhone platforms and the registration is completely free.
Each ride will be within Klang Valley only, and will be for short distances, not exceeding 30 minutes per ride with a maximum seating capacity of 3 persons. There will be NO long trips to KLIA.
