Help Keep Uber in the 412
Dear Uber Faithful,
We need your help! Before Uber, transportation options in Pittsburgh hadn’t changed in decades. Since arriving, we’ve seen overwhelming demand both from riders and drivers for transportation alternatives; you’ve made Pittsburgh the fastest growing city of all Uber time!
Unfortunately, some prefer the old status quo of limited choice in transportation options: The Public Utility Commission has been ticketing our drivers in an attempt to keep Pittsburgh from moving forward.
This is where you come in! Click to email, tweet, and call your public servants to tell them it’s time for a change:
This battle won’t be won without you weighing in by showing your officials that #PGHNeedsUber.
– Team Uber Pittsburgh
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.
