Kentucky: Severe Weather Update
Once again, we wanted to provide a quick reminder about how your Uber rides will be affected by the storm and state of weather emergency currently in Kentucky.
Due to the state of emergency declared in Kentucky, dynamic pricing will be capped at 3x.
This reflects Uber’s national policy that balances the goal of reliable transportation options with affordability during disasters: any time a disaster or state of emergency strikes, dynamic pricing is capped. Additionally, Uber dynamic pricing proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts which will be reflected on your receipt.
A few things to be aware of:
- Higher than normal ETAs: Please be patient as demand for rides may be higher and wait times may be longer than usual
- Limited destinations: We have reminded partners of the importance of driving safely in inclement weather – in areas where there is uncleared snow, driver partners may not be able to pick up or drop off riders
- Take caution: Please monitor news sources for the most up-to-date information about the storm and follow federal, state, and local safety directives
Let’s ride out the storm together!
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.
