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

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!

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

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.

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
