uberGREEN: a step towards a more sustainable mobility
Idioma/Language : Português | English
At Uber we envision a mobility that is simple, more accessible and more sustainable. This is why today we are bringing you uberGREEN, in Lisbon and Porto.
In the past few months we have been working hard to bring our riders a 100% electric ride, free of carbon emissions. Of all the places in the world where Uber currently operates, we are thrilled to be testing this new mobility option in Lisbon and in Porto.
uberGREEN is a pilot project that will be available for three months – from March 7th to June 6th, 2016 – to riders in Lisbon and in Porto. This is a step towards a more sustainable mobility that will help us answer a simple albeit important question: what is the impact of an on-demand, 100% electric, mobility option in reducing CO2 emissions in Lisbon and in Porto?
Throughout this pilot project, uberGREEN will offer rides in 100% electric cars, operated by Uber partners in Lisbon and in Porto, with uberX fares.
Each car will be equipped with a tracking device, developed by a portuguese technology partner, that will enable us to measure the CO2 emissions our riders will be saving Lisbon and Porto by choosing an uberGREEN ride, as opposed to a fossil fuel one.
uberGREEN is a pilot-project. This means that the uberGREEN option may be restricted to some areas of the cities, and that its availability may be limited, especially in rush hour.

Monitor the evolution of the project
The uberGREEN pilot-project will be launched with 20 cars, operated by Uber partners in Lisbon and in Porto. We expect that, by the end of this project, our riders are able to save Lisbon in Porto a total of 20 tons of CO2 by option to ride uberGREEN.
We count on you for this ride towards a greener mobility in the portuguese cities.

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.

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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
