Mother’s Day Special: Family Matters Most

“A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”

~ Cardinal Mermillod

Every year, Mother’s Day reminds us of how thankful we should be for the amazing superwoman we have in our lives. That’s none other than our mums!

This Mother’s Day, we invited three #UberMUMS and their kids over to have a little chat. We wanted to know what our little friends had to say about their mums’ mission to keep the city moving. Here’s what they had to share:




Q:What’s your favourite moment with your mummy?

A: I love it when mummy drive me to school! – Jayden, 4

“I truly appreciate how Uber has made it possible for me to enjoy the flexibility of earning high income while being able to spend time with my son whenever he needs me. Thank you Uber!” – Julia, uberX driver-partner





Q:How do you feel about what mummy does?

A: “I’m proud of my mummy because she drives people to work on time!” – Noor, 9

During our chat, he even shared a little secret that he was going to surprise mummy with a flower and a handwritten card. Surprise Kartini!

“I now get to spend more time with my children, what more could a mother ask for?” – Kartini, uberX driver-partner




Q:What do you like most about mummy?

A: “I love mummy because she plays racing games with me on the xbox” – Cristiano Soliano, 7

A: “Mummy is the best driver in the world! She also helps me with schoolwork and takes me out to fun places” – Alyssa Soliano, 6

“While driving as a pregnant mother, I felt respected that I was treated as an equal to any other driver male or female” – Jasmine, uberX driver-partner

When we got in touch, Jasmine was on her way to deliver her fifth child! The perfect gift you can expect this Mother’s Day. Congratulations Jasmine and Leandro!


Mothers. The single strongest person that we know in our lives.


Happy Mother’s Day,

The Uber Team
