This Fourth of July weekend, we are partnering with Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) to thank thousands of Uber driver-partners for making sure revelers have access to a safe ride home. As part of this nationwide public service campaign, we are asking our riders to help us support this important mission by taking the MADD pledge to not drink and drive.
Last night, Uber and Travis were honored to receive the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Civilian Leadership Award in New York City for our UberMILITARY program, capping off a week of moving moments honoring our nation’s veterans. It was an extraordinary privilege for Uber to receive this award on behalf of so many of our nation’s heroes – the men, women and families who have done whatever has been asked in service to our country.
Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard, Gresham…your Uber is arriving now!
BUDAPEST, YOUR SECRET UBERS HAVE LANDED!
We want to take a moment this Veterans Day to express our gratitude to the brave men and women who have served our country. For all that you and your families have done and all that you continue to do in service to our nation — thank you.

Four months ago, Giuliani Partners embarked on an independent strategic review of Uber’s driver background check (“BGC”) process. Today, I would like to update you on our progress. Uber is on track to complete more than 2 million background checks of potential drivers in 2014, which Uber has noted is among the highest totals of any major corporation in the world. This is a daunting task for a company that has yet to reach its 5th birthday – but I am pleased to say that in my opinion and that of my safety consulting team at Giuliani Partners and our partners at Guidepost Solutions, Uber is setting the safety standard in the ride-sourcing industry.
