Get to Your Events On Time with Calendar Shortcuts
When you’ve got to be somewhere, every minute counts. And digging to find an address, then copying and pasting it into the Uber app doesn’t get you there any faster. Starting today, we’ll save you the hassle with the rollout of our new Calendar Shortcuts feature.
With Calendar Shortcuts, Uber can assist with your planning. After all, we designed the new rider app around you—and our core beliefs that time is a luxury and that the information you need should always be at your fingertips. Whether it’s a flight out of town, meeting across the city, or dinner reservation with friends, it’s now one tap to get moving!
Once you connect your calendar, your upcoming meeting or appointment from your phone’s native calendar will appear as a “shortcut” on the bottom of the screen when you open the Uber app.
To get started, connect your device’s native calendar to Uber by going to Settings > Calendar Events in the app’s menu or via a card in the Uber feed. Just make sure your calendar events have an address.
Starting today, Calendar Shortcuts is rolling out to riders around the world on iOS, and is coming soon to Android. We’re giving priority access to business travelers using Uber through their company, since connecting a calendar is a top-requested feature for professionals with busy schedules. Learn about all the ways Uber is improving business travel.
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.
