If you grew up in the 80’s or have watched the Transformers movies you know who Optimus Prime is – the 18-wheeler Autobot and leader of the good guys. If you have the Uber app installed on your phone, you have a chance to hail Optimus Prime to come to your location in certain areas.

Optimus will be cruising in three cities in the US including Dallas, Phoenix, and LA. Sadly, Dallas folks have already missed their chance; Optimus was rolling out in that city on June 16. If you are in Phoenix, you can try to hail Optimus on June 19.

LA residents can try to get Optimus to come to them on June 21. Uber warns there is only one Optimus Prime and he will be hard to get. Keep trying says Uber. Other Transformers, like Bumblebee, will be available in the future.

Sadly, you can’t have Optimus drive you to the airport. He’ll only take you on a short 15-minute drive.
