In the Driver’s Seat: Thanking Uber Partners in Etobicoke
Uber has come a long way in Etobicoke since the launch of uberX in the GTA over a year ago. Starting with only a small group of driver partners, there are now more than 400 that call Etobicoke home and we’re thrilled to see that number continue to grow.
As we’ve grown, the role Uber driver partners play in the community has become increasingly important. Not only do they have a flexible opportunity that allows them to support their families – they help people get safely to where they need to be.
We recently hosted an event for Etobicoke driver partners and their families to celebrate them and all they do for the community. They are part of a community of over 16,000 driver partners across the GTA who provide over a million rides per month. We’re really excited to see what the future holds!
Thank you to everyone for a great day!
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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. 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–
