As we prepare for the school season, Uber teams across the country are hosting a series of events to celebrate parents and their kids. Beginning this weekend, in Miami, Los Angeles, Oakland and Indianapolis, teams will bring together parent drivers, their kids, community organizations, and local officials to hear about parents’ experience as drivers with Uber and discuss the importance of these types of earning opportunities in communities nationwide.
A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go. For Jonathan, a driver-partner in California, his rides are anything but ordinary — he wants his passengers to have fun and turned each trip into a dance party — and now the latest viral video. We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
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.
We are excited to share the second issue of Momentum Magazine, a publication for our community of drivers.

Meet a few of the leaders on the team, and see how they are driving this initiative forward in their communities.
For the more than 55 million Americans with disabilities, getting around isn’t always easy.

New transportation options like Uber add a fast, reliable, and affordable option to the transportation ecosystem for low-income neighborhoods. We asked researchers at BOTEC Analysis to run an experiment studying Uber’s current affordability, reliability, and response time in lower-income neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The results?
