(Miami, Fla.) – With statewide regulations for transportation network companies going into effect, Uber today announced the launch of their services in Key West at midnight on Saturday, July 1. Currently, the company operates throughout the rest of the Florida Keys.

“I’m thrilled that Uber’s first expansion after the statewide ridesharing law goes into effect will be in our own backyard,” said Sen. Anitere Flores (R-Miami). “Improving mobility throughout the Florida Keys is essential to helping strengthen our communities and economy. Uber has become a part of the fabric of Florida and I thank them for the work they do to increase transportation and access.”

“With Uber’s launch in Key West on Saturday, Florida Keys residents and visitors will now be able to more easily move throughout our communities,” said Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo). “Just as important, our local businesses will benefit from increased accessibility. In just a few short days no matter where you live or visit in Florida, you’ll have access to ridesharing and I’m proud Key West will be Uber’s first stop.”

“Uber could not be more thrilled to expand to Key West this coming weekend,” said Kasra Moshkani, General Manager, Uber Florida. “We thank the Key West community, local leaders, and businesses for their ongoing support. We look forward to helping make transportation safer and more efficient for all Keys residents and visitors alike.”
