Celebrate Women’s Day with Miss Australia!

March 8th is Women’s Day, a holiday honoring the economic, political, and social achievements of women in the UAE and beyond. This year, Uber is celebrating with a living embodiment of those ideals: Miss Australia 2012 and Miss World Runner-Up Jessica Kahawaty. On Saturday March 8th only, Jessica will be riding with us for a one-day promotion! How does that sound?

1. Open the Uber app from 4:00-8:00pm on March 8th
2. Set your Pickup location in-and-around the Marina area and click the Jessica icon in the app
3. If she’s available, Jessica will head with your driver to your location shortly for a ten minute tour
4. Pay directly through the app; no cash necessary (A ten minute ride is approximately AED45)
Demand for this promotion will be high and availability will be limited, but you can’t win the crown if you don’t enter the competition. If you can’t get Jessica on your first try, please be persistent. In addition to enjoying an enlightening conversation with Jessica, participants will walk away with sweet gifts from DOVE and Loul’s Sweet Treats (Hint: Now would be a good time to brush up on your trivia about notable women.)
For every ride taken on March 8, we will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC). If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact supportdubai@uber.com or send us a tweet @uber_Dubai.
P.S You have friends that don’t have Uber but want to donate and join the fun too? Let them download the app and use promo code “JESSICA” to get AED80 off their first ride!
With Love,
Uber Dubai Team

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. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
