Today Only: Request an uberX, Receive a Philly Pretzel
Last Thursday, Philadelphia City Council unanimously approved a resolution supporting uberX in the City of Brotherly Love. The resolution urges the PA General Assembly “to swiftly pass legislation” that would establish regulations for ridesharing options like uberX throughout the state, including Philadelphia, saying “Philadelphians desire and deserve additional transportation options.”
This is a great step forward, and we thank Councilmen Jim Kenney for his leadership and co-sponsor Councilmembers Goode, Greenlee, Tasco, Jones, Bass, Reynolds Brown, Squilla, O’Neill, and Henon for their support.
To celebrate, we are showing all of our supporters our Philly pride with a little #UberPretzelLove.

While the work isn’t over yet, and legislators need to act this year to make this progress permanent, these actions are a major step forward and we’re so excited to share the news with you.
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.
