The following email will be sent to drivers in the US from Travis Kalanick, following up on his post from yesterday. Here’s the email I’m sending to drivers affected by President Trump’s unjust immigration and travel ban: At Uber we’ve always believed in standing up for what’s right. Today we need your help supporting drivers […]
Our CEO and co-founder Travis Kalanick sent this email to Uber employees today, opposing the recent travel ban and working to compensate drivers using Uber who are impacted by the ban. Team, Yesterday President Trump signed an executive order suspending entry of citizens from seven countries—Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen—to the United States for at […]

Back in August 2016, we announced the launch of a program that allowed riders to use their commuter benefits debit card to pay for uberPOOL rides. We’re excited to share that we’ve partnered with Edenred, Ameriflex, Benefit Resource and Navia in more than a dozen cities so that more riders have the opportunity to save money when using uberPOOL to commute.

With Uber, we realize that you’re doing more than just going somewhere—you’re often going somewhere to meet someone. That’s why we’ve been working on two new features: a way for you to Uber directly to a person in your contacts, and a way to unlock custom Snapchat filters so you can Snap while you ride.
We believe that technologies like Uber provide an incredible opportunity to improve road safety in new and innovative ways—before, during and after every ride. While alcohol is the leading cause of traffic crashes, there are other behaviors that can put people at risk.

Today we are releasing new data showing Uber’s impact on these issues over the last few years—and announcing new features in the driver app to help reduce these risks going forward.
At Uber, we’re always looking for new ways to get involved in our communities and do our part in times of emergency. That’s why we are pleased to launch an official partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). We began working with NCMEC last year to help redistribute AMBER Alerts to our driver-partners when […]
