Los Angeles – Thanks to Uber you can catch a ride to work Transformer style.

To promote the latest instalment in the Transformers franchise, Uber, a popular taxi service, is rolling out an option for users to arrange a pick up from Optimus Prime.

Optimus Prime will make his way to three cities starting in Dallas, then Phoenix and finally Los Angeles. Only a few customers will be able to get a ride as there will only be one truck available.

The marketing campaign is backed by Paramount Pictures and General Motors.

Uber operates in 130 cities and is valued at $18bn. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy. Should you wish to report a comment for editorial review, please do so by clicking the 'Report Comment' button to the right of each comment.
