Let Us Help You Get Ready For Storm Season
As the first storm of the season approaches South Florida, we want to make sure our riders are ready. We’re teaming up with our friends at Capital One to provide a free Storm Readiness Pack on-demand while supplies last. You can request one tomorrow, from 10am to 12pm in Miami-Dade County through the Uber app. Demand will be high and availability will be limited.
These packs include items that will help you get ready for whatever comes our way this season. Each Pack Includes:
- 2 Gallons of Water
- First Aid Kit
- Kinetic Flash Light
- Glow Sticks
- Duct Tape
- Moist Towelettes
- Trash Bags
- Deck of Cards
We will also be donating 1000 Gallons of water to be distributed locally by charities in South Florida.
As South Florida prepares for inclement weather, we wanted to provide a quick reminder about how your Uber rides will be affected by the storm.
If state of emergency is declared in Florida, prices will not exceed 2.9x the normal fare.
This reflects Uber’s national policy that balances the goal of reliable transportation options with affordability during disasters: Anytime a disaster or state of emergency strikes, dynamic pricing is capped.
A few things to be aware of:
- Higher than normal ETAs: Please be patient as demand for rides may be higher and wait times may be longer than usual
- Take caution: Please monitor news sources for the most up-to-date information about the storm and follow federal, state, and local safety directives.
In case of an emergency, please follow any and all state and local emergency protocols.
Uber South Florida
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.
