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.

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–
