Winners Announced: Your Favourite Toronto #FiveStarRides
Last week, we asked Torontonians to share their #FiveStarRide with us for the chance to win a FREE month of Uber. We’ve been simply overwhelmed with the responses from riders sharing their amazing stories of drivers who went out of their way to make it a ride they’ll never forget. Over a long and heated team meeting, the Uber Toronto team finally narrowed it down to the top five stories, and we need your help to select the winner!

“I started using Uber in December last year, when my boyfriend and I needed to get to the airport for us to fly back to my home of Australia for Christmas. Farooq was so lovely I vowed to use Uber from then on.
Since being back in Toronto I received a puppy for my birthday, around the same time I got a new ‘Fantastic’ Job. As with a puppy you need to spend time and take it out, and after a week at home with him, I started my new job.
Every lunch time, have been using Uber to get me home so I can let the pup out, to run around and do his thing, then I book for Uber to get me back to work. This is not easy with a new job as you need to make a great impression.Some days when I cannot make it home, I call Uber to get me home after work, so I get there quicker. THANK YOU UBER!!!
I am so grateful for this service and every Uber driver i have been with. I just want to thank them all for helping me. I have no idea what I would have done. With these fine men, I get a good 45min each lunch with my pup to relax him and play and everything.
I just wanted to say thanks, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you!!!!!

“My #FiveStarRide was when Abdul picked me up late night downtown Toronto. He took me through a McDonald’s drive-thru, let me listen to music and have a full McDonald’s picnic in my back seat! Once I got to my building he helped me get inside and make sure I was in safely. I also managed to leave my cell phone in his car, which he brought to my house the next day! I could not be more thankful for him to make sure I was safe and for returning my phone! Will never forget that #FiveStarRide.”

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–
