Ride With Pride and Share Your Story

As the nation celebrates equality, family, and our right to marry the ones we love, we couldn’t be more thrilled for Pride weekend in our home city of San Francisco.

SF is a city rich with LGBT history, and we’re proud to call it our home. LGBT driver-partners and riders are making an impact every day, and we’re committed to doing the same. In celebration of Pride Month, we wanted to give back in a special way. And we’re inviting you to take part.

This year, we’re thrilled to team up with the It Gets Better Project to spread messages of hope to LGBT youth.

The It Gets Better Project’s mission is to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire changes needed to make it better for them.


From June 26-28, request the PRIDE option in the app to share your story of hope on camera.


Whether you want to tell your own story, or simply share some inspirational and encouraging words, each PRIDE car will be equipped with a video camera and notecards so you can help spread the message that It Gets Better.

HOW IT WORKS

  • OPEN your app on:
    Friday, June 26 from 5-9pm
    Saturday, June 27 from 2-7pm
    Sunday, June 28 from 2-7pm
  • SLIDE over to the PRIDE option
  • REQUEST your PRIDE ride, and a car equipped with a video recorder and letter-writing material will show up to collect your messages of hope for LGBT youth
  • RIDE and tell your story. You’ll be charged uberX rates for your trip, and the entire fare will be donated back to It Gets Better

Supply will be limited and demand will be high. If you’re passionate about sharing your story, we encourage you to keep requesting. But if you’re unable to get a PRIDE car, we’d still love for you to donate to the It Gets Better Project and share your story via their website.

Uber is committed to diversity and inclusion and we’re thrilled to be partnering with an organization dedicated to spreading a message of hope. We’re excited to celebrate Pride Month with you, and we hope you will join us as we ride with pride. Thank you for making a difference.
