Uber Taxi Update: Green Light for Summer
In an emergency session of the District of Columbia Taxi Commission (DCTC) held this morning, DCTC unanimously voted to modify its taxi regulations and delay any changes to technology companies like Uber until September 1. Because of these changes, we can now definitively say that UberTaxi will not close on June 1.
Although we’re not out of the woods yet and sedan regulations that raise real concerns are still looming, we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that you can enjoy Uber in DC for many years to come.
A heartfelt thanks for the tweets, emails and phone calls in support of Uber.
Have a nice holiday weekend!
General Manager, 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.
