Save UberDenver – Rally on Monday!
Help us save Uber in Colorado – RSVP to the rally Monday night!
This Monday, UberDenver and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick are hosting a rally at Galvanize after the Colorado Public Utilities Commission holds a public hearing on proposed rules changes that could shut UberDenver down.
Many of you may have heard about these destructive rules changes and, rest assured, the PUC has heard your voice through thousands of petition signatures, emails, tweets, and Facebook posts. Team UberDenver can’t thank you all enough for the outpouring of #UberDenverLove you’ve shown us.
However, despite Coloradans’ overwhelming support for Uber’s transportation innovation, the Colorado PUC is still considering measures that are not designed to promote safety, nor intended to improve your quality of life here in the Mile High City. These proposed regulations are designed to protect a Taxi industry that hasn’t been responsive to your needs, and to prevent reliable, efficient and high quality transportation – in other words, their aim is to shut down Uber.
Our work isn’t done yet! We need you to show Colorado regulators that you want Uber in Denver. Come to the rally on Monday!
Join us after the hearing Monday the 11th from 6 to 9pm @ Galvanize, 1062 Delaware St, Denver, CO. We’ll have complimentary refreshments, a live DJ, and a special jam session with Uber CEO Travis Kalanick.
Now is the time to show your #UberDenverLove. Together, we’ll keep quality
transportation options alive for Denverites and ensure that Colorado is a place that welcomes innovation and small business growth.

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.
