Refueling at Your Fingertips
There are few things more nerve wracking than driving on empty without a gas station in sight. Fortunately, it’s a problem that better technology can help solve. That’s why today we’re releasing Fuel Finder, a new feature within the driver app that makes it easy to check prices and navigate to the nearest gas station. This option will be available to all US partners by the end of this week.
Need to fill up? Use Fuel Finder to see the options closest to you. Simply tap on the icons to display the name, price per gallon, and distance to each station. Once selected, the app will automatically provide turn-by-turn navigation to get you there quickly and easily.
We also want to remind partners who drive a lot – more than 100 trips per month – that they can get access to exclusive discounts by using the Partner Fuel Card. Cardholders get up to 15 cents a gallon off at participating gas stations nationwide, including three cents off per gallon at tens of thousands of Exxon and Mobil stations. All discounts are automatically applied and reflected on the Fuel Card statement within the partner dashboard – so saving is hassle-free.
While most partners use the mobile app, many drivers still use the online dashboard for information on earnings and the latest perks. It’s been in need of a serious makeover for awhile, so today we’re debuting a refreshed site. Now it’s easier than ever to find information – from stats on ratings to trip history to detailed receipts for each trip. We hope you take the new dashboard for a spin today.
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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
