Cheers to you, Denver!
What a year, Denver! Ok, well half a year, but it feels like we’ve been a part of your lives for a very long time now. What did we even do before Uber hit the Mile High?! The Denver Team wants to say thanks for making the launch of Uber Denver a major success! We appreciate all the love and support we have recieved from all of you. We are looking forward to an exiting 2013!
We’ve also learned many lessons along the way in 2012. We want to make sure 2013 is bigger and badder. Here are just a few key resolutions were promising:
- A More Reliable Ride: We will be working tirelessly to make sure we have plenty of cars on the road in 2013 so you never have to be without a ride!
- Quality Control: Everyone deserves to have their door opened, water in their hands and drivers who know the roads. We are going to work with our drivers in 2013 to ensure a 5-star experience for everyone!
- Prevent Drinking & Driving: Uber will be working with many more bars and restaurants in 2013 to ensure everyone can have a great night out without the stress of transportation
We have many more tricks and fresh ideas up our sleeves We can’t wait to share! For now, I will leave you with some of our favorite moments of 2012. We are looking forward to adding more in 2013!
Your Uber Denver Team, Will, Meggie & Scott
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.
