COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus residents looking for a ride are now in luck.

A spokesperson for Uber confirmed that the transportation service will launch in Columbus on Wednesday, Sept. 21.

"Uber will soon bring safe, affordable transportation options and flexible work opportunities to Columbus," said Luke Marklin, Uber's General Manager in Georgia. "We've heard great interest from the Columbus community for the reliable way to get home safely at the tap of a button that Uber provides."

WTVM was the first to report Uber's potential interest in Columbus a few weeks ago. Uber returned to Auburn, AL last month as well.
