Uber announces launch date in Killington

KILLINGTON—On Friday, Jan. 20, Uber will partner with Killington Resort to officially launch Uber’s rideshare service in the ski community of Killington.
“We are excited about this opportunity to help connect residents and visitors alike to a safe, affordable and convenient transportation option this winter in Killington,” said Uber Vermont General Manager Cathy Zhou. “Since launching in Vermont just over two years ago, we’ve seen thousands of people using Uber to move around their communities. We hope people will take advantage of this new, innovative option and help keep our streets and communities safe by leaving their keys at home as they head out for the evening.”
“As the largest ski area in Eastern North America, we at Killington are aware of wayfinding and transportation challenges, especially during evening hours,” said Michael Joseph, communications manager for Killington Resort. “Uber’s service will ease those challenges and further enhance the Killington nightlife experience, which is already the best of any Eastern ski town, and daytime service will complement our existing shuttle service, helping bring more skiers and snowboarders to the hill.”
Uber will kick off with a weekend of events and partnerships including opportunities to win free skis from Parlor or free ski jackets from Orsden, as well as happy hour events at Long Trail Brewery and free waffles for the first 100 skiers on Saturday, Jan. 21, at K1 Base Lodge.
Uber, a technology platform that connects riders and drivers at the tap of a button on the app, first entered Vermont in October 2014.
