4 Years Moving DC
It’s been 4 years since our launch in DC.
From elections and inaugurations, to marathons and marches on the National Mall—DC never stops moving, and since launching in 2011, neither have we.
Since launching, 2.36 million individuals have taken a trip and over $500 million has been paid out to local driver-partners.
With the support of riders and driver-partners alike, we’ve been able to provide safe, affordable, reliable transportation options in DC and beyond the beltway. Over the years, you’ve rallied to support us when it comes to petitions, letters, and even tweets of support. Thanks to you, we’ve been able to do a lot together in the past 4 years.

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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
