AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Uber has officially arrived in Americus.

The city now has at least one, and possibly two, Uber drivers.

A Facebook page called "Get Uber to Americus" popped up last year, where organizers encouraged citizens to request a ride on the ride-service app.

That showed the company there is a need, and now there are officially Uber rides available in Americus.

"Students going out late at night, being able to have a safe access point to come home, not having to worry about impairment, or having to worry about safety, for the most part, they can just call an Uber driver, have that whole thing set up, and go," said Patrick Kay, Main Street Director.

Kay said he has already had comments from citizens who believe the next step would be to get "Uber Eats," a sort of food delivery service, to Americus as well.
