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
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.
