UberENGLISH Has Arrived!

Español  | English

Uber is here to connect anyone, anywhere with a safe, reliable, and affordable ride – while making it all as convenient as possible. That’s why we’re thrilled to launch uberENGLISH in Bogotá. We’ve heard from riders and driver-partners alike that they’d like the Uber experience to reflect the multilingual aspects of the multicultural communities in which we operate.

With the launch of uberENGLISH, residents and visitors in Bogotá can now choose to ride UBER or uberX with an English-speaking driver-partner.

Our goal is that with the introduction of uberENGLISH, riding with Uber becomes even easier for everyone.


UberENGLISH was created in partnership with Duolingo, the most popular and effective language learning platform in the world. Through this alliance:

  • Your driver partner took a 150-hour English course for free
  • Your driver partner received a Duolingo Certificate for free
  • Is ready to drive you around Bogotá in English!


  1. To unlock the ENGLISH option, open your app.
  2. Toggle over to uberX or Uber in the vehicle menu, select the ENGLISH option, and request.
  3. Experience your Uber ride with even more ease while speaking your language of choice.

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

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–
