Uber, the app that connects riders to drivers, celebrated its first year anniversary at the Jersey Shore over the Memorial Day weekend.

Known for its ability to connect a rider with a driver instantly through a smart phone, Uber has been expanding since it’s founding in 2009.

“The Jersey Shore was a natural move, especially in the summer,” said Matt Wing, a representative from Uber. “You can easily get where you need to go.”

According to Uber’s website, since their founding in 2009, “Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.”

The service allows drivers who have cars, pass a background check, and pass a vehicle inspection to become a driver. According to Wing, Uber had a great year at the Jersey Shore and is looking forward to another great summer.

“We know people are out at the Jersey Shore having a good time. This is a safe and easy option to get around,” said Wing. “It’s a win, win, win for everyone from the riders to the drivers.”

The organization is also partnering with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) across the state of New Jersey to raise awareness about drunk driving and the dangerous and often time fatal accidents that happen.
