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.


The Details


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:

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

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.
