Fueling Economic Growth, the Uber Community in Hayward
Last month, we announced a great milestone for the Bay Area: 20,000 Bay Area residents are actively partnering with Uber as a flexible economic opportunity. As the number of Bay Area residents partnering with us continues to grow, we remain committed to investing in their communities and helping them unlock that economic opportunity.
Last week, we hosted our first of many pop-up partner support and activation centers in Hayward, and we were floored by the warm reception from the 200 residents who joined us. Many folks came to refer friends and family, get vehicle inspections, and share their stories with the Uber partner community.
In just one year, we have partnered with over 1000 residents from the Hayward and Union City Area that encomapasses Assembly District 20. These thousands of residents helped grow the rider community by 700% by providing safe, reliable rides.
We are thrilled to be part of the economic engine of the East Bay, and of communities of all sizes throughout California. Stay tuned for more pop-up and permanent Uber Community support and Activation Centers throughout California!

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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
