The car service Uber is coming to Louisville, according to sources and the company’s website. 

Uber uses an app to let users find and hire privately owned cars and pay for rides. Based in San Francisco, the 5-year-old company has been expanding rapidly, recently into nearby Cincinnati and Indianapolis.

WFPL News has obtained a document that solicits area drivers to sign up with Uber, using their cars to provide rides. Further, Uber is hiring an associate general manager for the Louisville market. The job is based in Chicago, but, according to the description, will “work with Uber’s Launch team to launch and manage Uber Louisville.”

A request for comment from Uber has not been returned. We’ll update when we hear back.
