The people of Texas have spoken. In one week, 100,000 Texans urged their state legislators to support statewide regulations for ridesharing.
The House Transportation Committee met earlier today to discuss a bill to create modern statewide regulations for this new industry. If the 100,000-plus people that signed the petition came to Austin to show their support, it would have filled Darrell K Royal Stadium.
What are they saying?
This tremendous outpouring of support – the fastest growing petition in Uber history – demonstrates how much Texans love Uber, and the positive impact ridesharing has made in their communities. If ridesharing is allowed to flourish across the state of Texas, thousands more jobs will be created and millions of safe rides delivered.
We would like to thank every one of our supporters.
Together, we hope to establish smart, ridesharing regulations that protect public safety, increase transportation options, expand economic opportunity and ensure Uber has a permanent home here in Texas.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
