Uber + Caltrain: Moving The Bay Area Together
In the past five years, people all over the world have been using Uber to connect to the people and places they love. More and more we’ve seen how Uber has become an integral part of the transportation ecosystem and even complementing existing infrastructure in cities such as Los Angeles and San Diego.
In fact, we ran the numbers for our home city and found that in July of this year alone, nearly 80,000 Uber trips started or ended within 100 meters of a Caltrain station.
Bay Area residents are using Uber to complete the first and last miles of their public transportation commutes. That means what once was a logistical hassle, that required finding parking and having a car, is turning into a smooth experience.
Here is a look at a typical weekday of trips ending or beginning within 100 meters of a Caltrain station:
To put those numbers into perspective, each month, Uber is helping connect an entire day’s worth of Caltrain riders.
We are proud of our role as a complement to Caltrain and the larger Bay Area transportation ecosystem. We take great pleasure in helping commuters travel to and from work, and we look forward to helping make our transportation network more robust in years to come.
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.
