Uber Is in Session
Pack your backpacks, purchase your books and set up the dorm – Uber’s now in session! Starting today, Uber is rolling into 22 college towns across the US. We’re proud to be providing safe and affordable transportation options to an additional 600,000 students this year, and to 55% of the US population! To celebrate this milestone, we’re offering free rides in these 22 cities through the end of Labor Day Weekend! Spread the word to your friends and you might just move to the head of the class.
SPREAD THE NEWS
Back to school with Uber means you can request a ride at the push of a button — in minutes, you’ll be on your way to your destination. From the library to last call, let Uber be your ride!
|Arrive at the stadium in style with time to spare for tailgating.|
|Get home safely from a late night library cramming session.|
|Grab dinner with friends. (2 a.m. taco run? We’ve got those covered, too.)|
|Push snooze and arrive on time for class.|
Sure, we got the tour during orientation, but we know there’s so much more to explore on your school’s campus. Share a photo of the view from your Uber on Instagram or Twitter — make sure to use your school’s dedicated hashtag. We’ll be selecting one lucky winner from each school to receive $500 in Uber credits. Who doesn’t love extra credit, especially uberXtraCredit?
If you’re new to uberX and have questions, we’ve got answers! In the United States, our ridesharing service, uberX, offers Uber reliability with prices that are cheaper than a taxi. Our uberX driver partners have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four passengers. To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all driver partners must undergo Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX partner in the US, drivers must pass:
- A stringent background check
- A driving history check
- Ongoing quality controls
As always, safety remains our highest priority. All Uber rides are backed by our insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver to help ensure the highest quality experience. Sounds great, right? Be a smart cookie and sign up now!

Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
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.
