uberPOOL matches you with riders headed in the same direction, allowing you to share your ride and the cost. But often, when you request uberPOOL, you end up getting more than just an affordable ride. You get a story. Hear from riders around the world about their touching, funny, and surprising uberPOOL stories.
In 2010, Uber started as simply a big idea for a better way to get around. Today, with the launch of Beijing, Uber is in 100 cities around the world. And we’re just getting started.
We are moving people in these 100 cities, but the truth is that it’s the people in these cities that move us. Four years and millions of trips after launching in San Francisco, each city is full of amazing stories—about drivers building their businesses, and riders connecting with their cities in new ways. As we celebrate this milestone, we’re proud to celebrate those stories and the communities who make them possible every day.
Every time you request a ride through Uber, you’re helping empower small business owners to achieve their own American Dream. Our partners—your drivers—are the engine behind Uber. This Saturday, November 30th, Uber and American Express want to thank you for supporting local entrepreneurs on Small Business Saturday®!
