UberMILITARY: Supporting Veterans on Memorial Day
This Memorial Day, we’re proud to honor the service members and military spouses who are driver partners with Uber San Diego. On Monday, May 26th, by selecting the vehicle option UberMILITARY, you’ll be driven by an uberX military spouse or veteran while also giving back to our local military community. For every UberMILITARY ride, Uber will donate $1 to the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, a local nonprofit organization providing critical assistance to wounded warriors and returning service members in their transition back to civilian life.
There are hundreds of service members partnering with Uber and moving riders around our city every day. We’d like to introduce you to a few of them.
“I found out about the possibilities of Uber and that gave me a light of hope. I apply myself 100% and see great monetary results and meet amazing people.”
“It’s been an awesome experience partnering with Uber. The best part is that I control my hours and income. The joy of being out and about and meeting great riders is awesome! I see myself with Uber for a very long time! Uber On!”
“I serve and protect my riders from driving infractions by personally driving them to and from social events. I communicate with them in a courteous manner, making them feel good about using Uber. The feedback that I have received from my riders makes me just as proud to be a partner with Uber as I was serving my country.”
“I’m so happy partnering with Uber. The flexibility allows me to continue my education while still earning money. So far, I’ve had nothing but great experiences with riders.”
“I became an uberX partner to enjoy the freedom of making my own work schedule and to make discretionary income. In doing so, I’ve met very friendly riders, which has made driving with Uber a fun experience. I also enjoy giving rides to people visiting San Diego, so I can recommend places in town for them to visit.”

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–
