uberX launched in Illinois only a short 18 months ago and since then thousands of driver partners have moved hundreds of thousands of riders. Now, thanks to YOU, and the Illinois House of Representatives, uberX and rideshare can keep moving forward!
Leaders across Illinois have showed their support for rideshare and the need for local municipalities to find the model that fits their citizens best. Mayors in every region of the state and multiple councils of government – collectively representing over 70 municipalities – voice their opposition of HB 4075.

This past August, Governor Quinn vetoed HB 4075, a bill that would have ended uberX as we know it in Illinois. Thank you for all your support. We’re thrilled that the Governor chose innovation over the status quo by supporting ridesharing in Illinois, but we need to make sure the state legislature doesn’t override the governor’s veto in the upcoming session. We need your help.
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.
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.
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!
