Meet scUber: The World’s First Rideshare Submarine On The Great Barrier Reef

Uber is now headed underwater. The ridesharing service has announced scUber, “the world’s first ridesharing submarine.”

ScUber will take riders around Australia’s Great Barrier Reef for $2,000 for two people. That cost also includes a helicopter trip to the docking station and the full one hour trip around the reef.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living organism on Earth and has been hurt by climate change. According to a study recently published in the journal Nature, baby coral in the reef has declined by 89%, and mass-bleaching events caused by climate change have decimated large portions. Uber is matching the dollars spent on scUber—and donating an additional $100,000—to Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef to help protect the reef from future harm.

ScUber is a limited time offering, running until June 18. The main service is only available to riders based in Queensland, Australia, but other regions have a chance to participate by entering Uber’s contest that gives the winner and a friend an all-expense paid trip to Queensland and a free ride on scUber.

Winners will be chosen based on pleas limited to just 25 words. Six of these trips will be awarded to various regions around the world, and submissions must be entered before June 1.
