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.

We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
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.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
