Uber and Public Transit: Working Hand in Hand in Miami-Dade
Three months ago, Miami became the eighth U.S. city to launch uberPOOL. By matching riders who are traveling along similar routes at the same time, uberPOOL makes riding in Miami more affordable than ever. As transportation becomes more inexpensive and reliable, it becomes easier to consider leaving your car at home – reducing congestion and transforming the way people get around Miami-Dade.
In just the 3 months since we launched uberPOOL, riders sharing their trips have saved 524,000 miles of driving – more than the distance to the moon and back! That translates into 10,480 gallons of fuel saved and over 1,100 kilograms of CO2 emissions prevented.

But uberPOOL is only a part of the solution to taking cars off the road. For many residents, public transportation is a key part of their daily commutes.
The first and last mile of that commute – how you get to and from the bus or metrorail station – remain a challenge.
We are proud to announce that starting today, uberPOOL is available at Metrorail stops from Earlington Heights to Dadeland South Station.
With uberPOOL available from even more Metrorail stops, it’s easier and more affordable than ever to take public transportation
We are proud to make it more convenient and affordable to ride with existing transit options in Miami-Dade – and to make sure you have safe, reliable transportation in the year ahead.

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.
