Safe Rides, Safer Cities

Every week, hundreds of thousands of people in Canada trust Uber to get them around their city safely. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers, Uber makes cities more accessible – providing safe, reliable transportation options for riders while enabling economic opportunities for driver-partners. Our technology makes it possible to focus on safety for riders and drivers before, during, and after every trip in ways that others can’t.


To help spread positive awareness and celebrate Pride, we reached out to our Ottawa driver and UberEATS partners to share their stories and messages of how Love Moves Us and what Pride means to them.

Ride with Pride and Spread the Love

We believe in bringing people together during Pride, no matter who you are, to celebrate the diversity, equality and love that connects our city. For every uberX ride taken over Pride weekend in Ottawa, August 19-22, $1 will be donated to the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD).

Supporting Ottawa’s LGBTQ community

Like people across the world, we were deeply shocked and saddened by the recent murders at a gay nightclub in Orlando. The world is a brighter and better place when we are all free to be ourselves. And we want to bring people together, no matter who you are or where you’re from.
