Uber Execs Chat about #UberNYE and Surge Pricing
This morning Travis and I sat down for a livestream chat (video above) to discuss #UberNYE. We answered some tough questions and shed some more light on the dynamics of a crazy NYE and how it effects Uber’s business. We had almost 500 people tune in and hopefully we’ve brought further clarity to how surge pricing works and the hard work that the Uber team has put in to make your NYE 2013 and uber one.
From the Uber team, we wish you a very safe and happy NYE 2013.
-Ryan, VP Operations
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.
