Share a Ride, Plant a Tree

To help celebrate Earth Day tomorrow, we’ve partnered up with Taking Root, a Montreal-based non-profit that develops community reforestation projects with farmers in Nicaragua. After all, when we planted our roots down in Toronto and Montreal, one of our goals was take make our cities (and the world) a more eco-friendly place!

From paperless receipts, to encouraging people to leave their cars at home, Earth Day for us isn’t just one day in April. We’re always looking to find new ways to make Uber even greener, and this Earth Day, we’re planning something that will surely make Mother nature smile.

For every fare split trip in TO and MTL on April 22nd,
we’re donating $1 to Taking Root.

Every dollar will go towards planting a tree on behalf of our riders and driver partners, so be sure to fare split your rides today. If you’re heading to an Earth Day party or just carpooling with a co-worker to work, be sure to fare split the trip. It’s for a good cause!


  1. Grab a friend and request a ride
  2. Fare split (here’s a reminder on how to fare split)
