Uber officially launched service for the first time in Wyoming on Friday. Governor Matt Mead signed ridesharing legislation into law at 2 p.m., which made it legal for Uber to operate everywhere in the state, effective immediately.

Over the past several weeks, Uber has been actively communicating with potential driver-partners in Casper, Cheyenne, Jackson, Gillette, Laramie, Rock Springs and Sheridan. But the service is available anywhere in the state, so there are no restrictions on where driver-partners and riders can use the app.

“We’re thrilled to be rolling out in Wyoming,” said Franz Schreiner, territory manager for Uber. “If people aren’t yet familiar with the app, I think they’ll find it reliable, convenient and easy to use. Essentially you push a button and get a ride.”

Uber is an app that connects people who need a reliable ride with people looking to earn money by driving their car. Founded in 2009, the company operates in more than 500 cities and 70 counties around the world.
