In Pennsylvania, alcohol-related motor vehicle deaths exceed the national average by 24%. In an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving, we set up our Uber breathalyzer kiosk in Manayunk on Thanksgiving Eve — a night when people around the country enjoy catching up with old friends and hitting the town’s haunts.
Philadelphia has some of the most entertaining nightlife in the country and with Uber it’s never been easier to enjoy a night out on the town.
The weekend of this year’s Army–Navy Game, we partnered with the American Red Cross to honor our service members and share a touch of home. As part of the Holiday Mail for Heroes initiative, we stocked over 200 cars with blank holiday cards and pens, giving Uber Philly riders the opportunity to write a personal note to our troops.
Every day, millions of people trust Uber to get them around their city safely; night and day and whether they’re traveling alone or with friends. Our technology makes it possible to focus on safety for riders and drivers before, during, and after every trip in ways that others can’t.
‘Tis the season for giving. Today and tomorrow, we’re partnering with the American Red Cross to deliver holiday cards to the men and women of our U.S. Armed Forces—signed by you.
Finals are here, which means late nights and little sleep, so we’ve brewed up a way to keep you energized. We’re teaming up with Saxbys Coffee to bring you UberJAVA—on-demand coffee breaks, absolutely free! Each coffee break will include Saxbys coffee and snacks for up to 8 people, so tap your app, grab your study group, and share UberJAVA.
On Friday, November 20, eight of Philly’s most influential women gathered to discuss economic empowerment and offer insights, tips, and stories from their experiences as leaders. Hosted by Uber Philadelphia and moderated by Councilwoman-at-large Blondell Reynolds Brown, the panel discussed a variety of topics ranging from entrepreneurship, to inner strength, to the ability to “have it all.”
