Celebrating Partners Like You
Join us on April 20th, from 6-8pm at the Uber DC headquarters as we celebrate our deaf and hard of hearing driver partners.
Last year, we launched new app features for our deaf and hard of hearing driver-partners to make it easier to see trip requests and connect with riders. This year, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with a leading nonprofit, Communication Service for the Deaf (CSD), to invest in the deaf and hard of hearing community on a national level. The unemployment and underemployment rate is over 70% in the deaf and hard of hearing community. Together, we’re working with CSD to reduce this number and empower more people to earn a flexible living.
When: Wednesday, April 20, 6-8pm
Where: Uber DC Office near Farragut Square
Who: You, plus a friend!
Don’t miss out on these special event details:
- Prize Raffle: Win a free night’s stay at any Starwood hotel, tickets to Washington Nationals baseball game, and other great prizes!
- Refer a Friend prize: Know someone interested in driving with Uber? Bring them to the event and when your friend signs up with your referral code, you’ll receive $100 and so will your friend after they take their first trip.*
- Food, drinks, and visual art provided by Hot off the Press! and Rosemary’s Fabulous Cakes
- Uber booth: We’ll also have Uber staff and ASL interpreters available to help answer any questions and assist new drivers to sign up.
Please RSVP by Friday, April 15, 2016.

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.
