Riding Together to Ring in 2016
Cheers to 2016! With a few New Year’s Eve celebrations under our belts now, we’ve noticed some patterns in the way people around the world come together to ring in the New Year. From Bangalore to Los Angeles, we all move in similar ways.
This year, we learned a few new things—like which cities head to the party earliest (Chicago!) and the most popular time to head home (around 1 AM if you were in Bangalore, a little after 2 if you were in Toronto). We also learned where partiers kick up their heels the longest—plenty of folks were still making merry at 5 AM in Singapore and London.
Thank you to the millions of riders and hundreds of thousands of drivers who let us be a part of your evening. We’re excited about what’s in store for 2016—we hope you’ll join us for the ride.
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.
