Uber is now available in the Duluth area

And they're giving away free rides around Duluth, Cloquet, Hermantown, and Superior.

Uber has arrived in Duluth.

The ride-share company announced it'll officially launch on the North Shore Monday afternoon, with service in Duluth, Cloquet, Hermantown, and Superior, Wisconsin (see a map here).

And to celebrate, Uber is offering two free rides for people in Duluth, up to $15. Just use the promo code "RIDEDULUTH" when you request a ride in the Uber app.

The free rides will begin at noon Monday, and be available through Thursday at 11:59 p.m. For more information, click here.

Rides in Duluth

People in Duluth have been hoping for ride-share companies to come to the city, and last month the city council officially approved them.

Lyft launched its service Thursday, making Uber (just days later) the second company to arrive on the North Shore.

Noah Hobbs, the city council member who pushed for the ordinance to allow ride-share companies, said in a statement he's "thrilled to welcome Uber to Duluth," noting it comes just in time for the busy summer season and Grandma's Marathon.

"I know from experience in other cities the benefits that transportation network companies can bring, both to riders and to drivers. As this service has gained popularity across Minnesota, it was clear that Duluth residents and our nearly 7 million tourists a year would benefit from additional transportation options," he said.
