Tampa Bay Statement 3.10.15
Our thoughts are with our partner’s loved ones during this difficult time, and we’re hopeful for his safe return. We’ve provided law enforcement with all information we have available, and stand ready to help in any other way we can.
Here are the facts we know at this time:
- Uber driver-partner Sean Golden is affiliated with Uber Tampa Bay as a partner on the uberX platform.
- Mr. Golden is an active Uber partner who has provided great service to riders since 2014.
- Uber is in contact with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, has provided details on Mr. Golden’s location while using the Uber app, and will continue to assist in any way we can.
- Mr. Golden was not providing a ride through the Uber app during the time that is being investigated.
If you have any information that could help the Sheriff’s Office in its investigation, please call 1-800-706-2488.
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.
