Honolulu – It’s Time For Action
Since launching ridesharing services like uberX in Hawaii less than a year ago, Uber has already begun to reshape the Aloha State’s transportation ecosystem. Riders are finding a more reliable and affordable way to connect to their communities, and drivers are benefitting from life-changing income opportunities.
Like other places across the globe, Hawaii is quickly realizing the benefits that ridesharing brings to the community in the form of new, higher safety standards and unprecedented reliability. In 2013, there wasn’t a single law regulating ridesharing. But by the end of 2014, more than 20 jurisdictions had passed permanent legislative frameworks to support and affirm this innovative way to get a ride.
We have worked closely with legislators to draft sensible ridesharing legislation, but now, they are considering legislation that would effectively shut down uberX in the state. Tell Hawaii’s leaders to support opportunity and consumer choice by saying no to SB1280 SD2 — sign the petition today!

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–
