We Appreciate Chicago Teachers!

Uber Chicago is proud to highlight the efforts of a very important group of partners on the Uber platform – our community’s teachers. This month, we’d like to celebrate and give back to the men and women who educate our city’s residents!

Chicago Celebrates Labor Day!

We’re so proud of our driver partners each and every day. This Labor Day weekend, we ask you to celebrate the work of our driver partners and the impact they and Uber have had on the fabric of our city since our launch in September 2011.

Jam with Uber at a.v. Fest

The folks at AV Club and The Hideout are back for a third year to kick off Hideout Block Party / A.V. Fest, a block party-music festival mash up…and we’re here to hook you up with the ultimate VIP experience.

Uber On, Governor Quinn.

Governor Quinn showed us he is a champion for uberX and ridesharing today by veto’ing HB 4075. His decision to protect consumer choice and promote competition on Illinois’ streets shows his commitment to economic growth in Illinois.

Driver Spotlight: Ivan

Ivan has been an Uber Partner since the early days in San Francisco. Now you can find him on the streets of Chicago, making a difference one mile at a time. When Ivan isn’t on the road, he’s raising awareness for diabetes and changing lives for a cause that affects nearly 25 million Americans. Read more here…

Save uberX! Veto HB 4075.

Uber Chicago arrived at the Thompson Center to demonstrate the impact uberX has made on Illinois. We delivered over 75,000 petition signatures to Governor Quinn’s City of Chicago office to veto HB 4075 and save uberX. There’s still time to take action!

#uberBURBS: Arlington Heights & Palatine

We’re officially launching in Arlington Heights & Palatine! From the race track to the city and back again – Uber has your rides covered. Enjoy two free uberX rides to or from the area, August 22 – 24.

#UberMOVEMENT: We Appreciate Our Partners

On August 7th, uberX partners joined the Uber Chicago team for an appreciation lunch and business showcase at Marcello’s Restaurant in Old Town. We were happy to take this time to meet our great partners and provide extra knowledge about the benefits and opportunities that Uber can provide.

#ditchyourcar: Ride with Us!

Today, we permanently cut uberX prices by 15%. Up to 50% cheaper than a taxi, that means uberX is so inexpensive and reliable, it may be time to #DitchYourCar!


#UberMOVEMENT is based upon building and strengthening relationships with those in our community and supporting our neighbors as well as our driver partners. Going forward, we will be taking our community involvement to the next level.
