VancUBER: We can’t stop thinking about you
A lot has happened in the two years since we first met. Beyonce dropped a surprise album, Will and Kate announced they have another baby on the way, and we’ve added to the Uber family too, expanding to more than 213 cities worldwide.
We’ve seen new cities around the world welcome us emphatically, and even helped several municipalities craft regulations that understand our innovative business model that benefits riders, drivers, and cities at large.
Although we only spent a few months together, we think we had a really strong connection. All the places we traveled together, the memories we made. Sure, there was drama, but we haven’t been able to stop thinking about you. We compare every new city to you. And now we realize that perhaps the timing just wasn’t right when we first met. But that doesn’t mean we can’t try again.
We’ve been getting reacquainted with city officials, educating them on how the Uber platform works and hope they’ll understand why cities around the globe have already fallen in love with Uber.
It’s true that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and so we can hardly wait see you again, Van.
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.
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–
