We are excited to announce a collaboration with Life Reimagined, a wholly owned non-profit subsidiary of AARP, to offer millions of members the opportunity to earn income as a driver-partner with Uber in a way that is flexible, convenient, and highly adaptable to their lifestyle.
We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.

In March, we made the pledge to economically empower 1,000,000 women as drivers with Uber by 2020. To drive toward that commitment, we have created a dedicated global team that is focused on making that goal a reality—and improving the experience for women drivers along the way. Meet a few of the leaders on the team, and see how they are driving this initiative forward in their communities.
For the more than 55 million Americans with disabilities, getting around isn’t always easy. This month our nation celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which sought to level the playing field for both job opportunity and mobility for the Americans with disabilities. We wanted to mark this milestone with an update on some of the work we’ve been doing to improve Uber’s accessibility for both riders and drivers with disabilities.
