Uber Transportation Hitting the Streets of Amsterdam

The up and coming private transportation service Uber has officially launched its services in Amsterdam after a month of trial. Although the local means of transportation is typically bicycle Uber plans that poor weather conditions will create demand for their services.

Private transport startup Uber has announced its official launch in Amsterdam, its third European city, after a month-long testing period.

After Paris and London, Uber is bringing its private driver service to Amsterdam, recognizing the city’s "international and entrepreneurial character," as the company states in its press release.

While bicycles are probably the most popular means of transport in the city, autumn rains and winter cold may aid Uber in attracting customers in the Dutch capital.

Amsterdammers can download the Uber app for iOS or Android, or just visit to request a ride. The minimum tariff for the service is €12 ($15.60) with price-per-kilometer being €2.34 ($3) and price-per-minute €0.75 ($1).
