uberPOP, at your service, Bruxellois!
Since launching in February this year, uberPOP has been embraced by the Bruxellois with overwhelming demand from both riders and drivers. By providing an innovative, safe, reliable and hassle free transportation option whenever and wherever a Bruxellois or visitor needs it, the economic activity and choice generated by Uber’s platform in the market has been simply unmatched.
However, not everyone has reacted with the same enthusiasm to more choice for riders and driver. And though trying to limit choice doesn’t ever seem like a good idea, it was nevertheless the idea behind the recent lawsuit filed by Brussels radio taxi companies, big companies that have failed consumers, drivers and the city of Brussels over and over again.
If anyone should be filing lawsuits, it’s Brussels consumers and Brussels taxi drivers – to stand up against all those who have been trying to protect the Brussels taxi market’s vested interests for decades and who are continuously trying to block their options.
Uber was founded on the idea that both riders and drivers should have access to an innovative and efficient transportation service. Keeping this interest at heart, we will continue to fight for accessible solutions that are reliable, safe and convenient.
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.

Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
