Uber Sighting in DC?!
Seeing as Washingtonians are all about changing our country and are always on the move, we’re going to try and change some things up for you, namely the way you move about the city!
Our secret Ubers are on the road and *testing* has begun. So, who is the famous rider zero?
It’s Hooman Radfar, Co-Founder of Clearspring and a man who loves innovation! As one of the more prominent tech companies in DC, we’re excited to have Hooman in the back seat!
Again, although cars are on the road, keep in mind this is research mode; we’re learning and testing and the experience will get better with your feedback. During this time, we’ll have limited supply and low availability, however if you’re one of the lucky ones who gets a ride, please send us your thoughts to supportDC@uber.com or on Twitter @Uber_DC.
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.
