Thank You, Delaware!
We couldn’t have done it without your help. Delaware is now among more than 30 states with new, statewide laws for ridesharing platforms like Uber.
Governor Markell signed SB 262 into law earlier this month, and with the enactment of this legislation, the requirements for all ridesharing platforms operating in the state, including safety and consumer protections, background checks and reporting obligations, have been codified in Delaware law. Thanks to this new law, Uber can stay in Delaware for the long term, giving riders more affordable, reliable options and expanding opportunity for drivers across the state.
When riders and drivers speak up to advocate for consumer choice, public safety, and economic opportunity it makes a huge impact, and we’re excited about what comes next. We thank the following public officials for contributing to the passage of this legislation:
Senator Bryan Townsend
Senator Margaret Henry
Representative Helene Keeley
Governor Jack Markell
Senator Patricia Blevins, President Pro Tempore
Senator David McBride, Majority Leader
Senator Margaret Rose Henry, Majority Whip
Senator F. Gary Simpson, Minority Leader
Senator Gregory Lavelle, Minority Whip
Representative Peter Schwartzkopf, Speaker of the House
Representative Valerie Longhurst, Majority Leader
Representative John Viola, Majority Whip
Representative Daniel Short, Minority Leader
Representative Deborah Hudson, Minority Whip
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.
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–
