Uber Storms #SxSW: Free Uberx Rides, New Luxury Cars and Pedicabs


SxSW is in full swing. You have a million events to get to around Austin, so why not travel in style for free? Our friends at Uber are offering a ton of perks for SxSW attendees. Here’s the rundown:

  • Free Uberx rides for SxSW attendees from Austin locals.
  • A re-vamped pedicab service to help you get around town fast
  • Try out the new Uber 2.0 Android app before it’s released to the general public
  • Travel in style with Uber:Lux. Get around in a Porche Panamera, Mercedes S550, Range Rover, or even a Rolls Royce Ghost.

Uber pedicabs and cars will be on the road from 12pm to 3am. More details here.


We will be giving away 10 free UberLux rides at SxSW. Find out where we’ll be here, and follow us on twitter @twilio.

We’re happy to power Uber’s voice and text messaging communications. Learn more about how Uber uses Twilio, and how they went international below. Happy SxSW!
