In 2010, Uber started as simply a big idea for a better way to get around. Today, with the launch of Beijing, Uber is in 100 cities around the world. And we’re just getting started.
We are moving people in these 100 cities, but the truth is that it’s the people in these cities that move us. Four years and millions of trips after launching in San Francisco, each city is full of amazing stories—about drivers building their businesses, and riders connecting with their cities in new ways. As we celebrate this milestone, we’re proud to celebrate those stories and the communities who make them possible every day.
Each of the #Uber100 cities is unique, from Beijing to Oklahoma City to Cape Town. But what they have in common—and what is true in every city around the world—is that existing transportation options simply haven’t met these cities’ needs.
As we reflect on the last four years and look towards the next four, we say thank you to riders, drivers and the #Uber100. We’re excited for the next 100. And the 100 after that.

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.
