The following email will be sent to drivers in the US from Travis Kalanick, following up on his post from yesterday.

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.
At Uber, we want to use technology to make carpooling affordable and reliable for riders, and effortless for drivers. It’s why over two years ago, we launched uberPOOL to make it easy for people headed in the same direction at the same time to share the journey.
Today we announced we’re collaborating with Disney on an activation that transforms the Uber rider app into a themed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story experience.

The holiday season is one the most enjoyable times of the year. However, many celebrations end in tragedy every year when crashes occur as a result of drinking and driving. Uber is working with MADD and law enforcement agencies to raise awareness about the dangers associated with alcohol impaired driving and are encouraging people to take the pledge to leave the keys at home if their plans include alcohol.
Sometimes, 5 stars just isn’t enough. Starting this week, we’re making it easier for riders to thank drivers for the things they doㄧbig and smallㄧto make the ride memorable.
As you shop for loved ones this holiday season, we invite you to give a gift that will never collect dust in a closet or under the bed. Share the magic of tapping a button and getting what you want, when you want it — whether it’s a ride across town or a delivery to your […]
