Uber Launches in Billings
Billings residents have a new way to catch a ride as Uber has launched in the city.
The Billings Gazette reports that Billings Mayor Tom Hanel took the service's ceremonial first ride on Friday to celebrate the service's arrival.
Uber has already rolled out in Missoula, Great Falls, Helena, Butte and Bozeman.
Brian Gebhardt, general manager of Uber Montana, said Uber does not release driver figures, but that all Montana cities have a comparable fleet. He says Billings had higher interest in the service compared to some other cities, judging by inquiries online.
