Hyderabad, Thank you for 2016!

Hyderabad, what a ride it’s been! As we look back at 2016, we couldn’t help but reminisce about the year we’re leaving behind. From launching new products to creating delightful experiences for our riders & driver partners, we’ve come a long way. We started out to solve a simple problem – how do you get a ride at the tap of a button? With the launch of uberPOOL and uberMOTO in Hyderabad, we’ve began tackling an even greater challenge: reduce congestion and pollution in our cities by getting more people to share their ride.

To put a number to the impact, 6 months into launching uberPOOL the people of Hyderabad have saved over 10 million kms – that is almost 5 trips to the moon or 40 trips around the globe! Imagine what we could achieve if we all choose to come together? Pledge to #SwitchToPOOL here!

Among all the promises we’ve made for a better future, we’ve not stopped short of celebrating people and their stories. With the #ColourASmile campaign, together we donated crayon boxes to 1,37,720 kids across the country and for Diwali, we surprised drivers-partners, riders and their families with party packs from Coca-Cola.

Our CEO Travis launched uberMOTO – a product that will go a long way in making rides affordable and reducing time spent in traffic, because it’s less on wheels & more on fun! We’re excited to share this vision with the Hon’ble CM of Telangana and IT Minister to help move Hyderabad forward. Keeping with the times, watch them do the  #MannequinChallenge.

From working with the future of India through initiatives like uberPITCH to uniting our voice against drunk driving through our partnership with Mission Smart Ride! Spot our collateral across the city to score your free rides. With everything that…. 2016 has been an eventful year for us at Uber. And we couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Here’s wishing you a happy & exciting 2017! We look forward to sharing the ride ahead with you!
