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!
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.
