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!

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.
