UberCab founded

1 Mar, 2009

Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick found the company as UberCab – a marketplace that connects riders with private drivers via a smartphone app.  Their January 2009 Flickr photostream includes multiple views of a Mercedes-Benz S-class sedan, advertising images and a map of part of downtown San Francisco.
