Uber Execs Chat about #UberNYE and Surge Pricing
This morning Travis and I sat down for a livestream chat (video above) to discuss #UberNYE. We answered some tough questions and shed some more light on the dynamics of a crazy NYE and how it effects Uber’s business. We had almost 500 people tune in and hopefully we’ve brought further clarity to how surge pricing works and the hard work that the Uber team has put in to make your NYE 2013 and uber one.
From the Uber team, we wish you a very safe and happy NYE 2013.
-Ryan, VP Operations
A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go. For Jonathan, a driver-partner in California, his rides are anything but ordinary — he wants his passengers to have fun and turned each trip into a dance party — and now the latest viral video. We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
