The Dog Days of Uber

After 145 years together, San Francisco and our local SPCA chapter are getting pretty serious; it’s safe to say that things have escalated from puppy love to a strong and lasting relationship.

Here at Uber, we’re lucky enough to have some amazing canine coworkers — so when Dewey, Nino, and the other dogs of Uber HQ suggested we get involved with the SF SPCA’s anniversary celebration, we decided to throw them a bone. (Seriously, who could say no to these faces?)

This Saturday, October 5, Uber will be on site at the SF SPCA’s Dog Carnival giving complimentary rides to anyone who takes a new pup home. In addition to free pet adoptions all weekend, there will be a dunk tank, a photo booth, a doggie costume contest, food trucks, a beer garden, and lots of prizes to win. Come join us for a day of fetching fun, and if you’re new to Uber, sign up with the code SFSPCA to get $20 off your first ride.

Even if you can’t make it to the event, you can still help Uber support the SF SPCA’s efforts. We’ve created a special promo code, and we’ll donate $1.45 to the SF SPCA for every rider who enters it and takes a trip this weekend.

How it works:

  1. Click the person icon in the top left of your Uber app
  2. Type the promo code DOGS145
  3. Ride with Uber this Saturday or Sunday
  4. Hang your head out the window and enjoy the scenery

Happy anniversary, SF SPCA. Here’s to 145 more years — that’s 1015 dog years! — of providing care, treatment, and homes for the animals who give us unconditional love.

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.

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–
