Moving Together on New Year’s Eve
What happens when millions of people come together on one night looking for safe, reliable rides? We learned that in many ways, we all move together. From Cape Town to Paris to San Francisco, we all celebrate in similar ways: from when we head out to celebrate, to when we head home (except for the late-night partiers in Paris).
In the last year we added more than 200 cities to the Uber network. This New Year’s Eve, a team of more than 2,000 employees and hundreds of thousands of incredible driver partners worked around the clock to deliver two million safe, reliable rides.
So here’s to 2015: a big, bold new year. Thank you for including us on your journeys—we’re so glad you’ve joined us for ours.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
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.
