Share a ride, plant a tree
The theme of Earth Day 2014 is Green Cities, which we know a little something about. After all, we’re not only looking to connect you with your city reliably and efficiently, but we’ve always been about reducing our environmental impact, too.
From paperless receipts, to increasing the number of eco-friendly vehicle options, to encouraging people to leave their cars at home, Earth Day for us isn’t just one day in April. We’re always looking to find new ways to make Uber even greener, and this Earth Day, we’re planning something that will surely make Mother Nature smile.
For every fare split trip in the U.S. on April 22nd,
we’re donating $1 to the Earth Day Network
|SPREAD THE WORD|
Every dollar will be used to plant a tree, which means thousands of trees will be planted on behalf of our riders and partner drivers. So get your Earth Day party started — grab a friend and share a ride. It’s for a good cause!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
- Grab a friend and request a ride
- Fare split (Not sure how it works? Check out this blog post)
- One dollar will be donated from your ride to the Earth Day Network to plant a tree. So by sharing a ride, you’re actually helping the earth breathe easier.

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.
