Serving more people with more ways to pay
Our mission is to provide access to reliable transportation everywhere for everyone. Innovations that make transportation more affordable and accessible like uberPOOL have helped us make progress toward that mission; but to serve more people, we have to meet them where they are in ways that meet their needs.
One way we’ve done that is by giving folks in over 150 cities across the globe the option to pay for rides with cash. Not everyone has a credit card or feels OK handing one over to a service they’ve never used. We get that, so we developed a solution using technology to enable people who want to pay with cash to do so with our app.
That’s why starting Tuesday, January 17 we are piloting an option that will let riders in Colorado Springs choose to pay for their Uber trips with cash instead of a credit card.
All of Uber’s safety features will be in place before, during and after every trip—including GPS tracking and the two-way feedback system. Riders will always be able to pay by credit or debit card if they prefer, and change will be handled in the form of credits directly through the app.
We’re excited to bring this option to the US, and we look forward to hearing from drivers and riders about their experience using cash over the next few weeks.
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.
