Uber Chicago and WBEZ Taxi Driver Appreciation Day

UPDATE: 

Taxi Appreciation Day was a huge success. The Uber Chicago team had a blast thanking drivers for all their hard work and handing out coffee and donuts from DoRite Donuts and other fun swag from WBEZ 91.5FM, Vocalo and Uber. Thanks again to all the drivers who made it out to see us and all the Taxi Appreciation Day partners. #UberDriverLove

If you are a rider, please share this info with your awesome taxi drivers throughout the week. Don’t forget to tweet us your #UberDriverLove for a fantastic driver you’ve had in the city.

The drivers are the heart and soul of the Uber TAXI experience. We hear stories all the time — from fantastic conversations to start a day off during the morning commute to getting rescued on the side of the highway when a rider’s car breaks down — and we felt it was high time to show drivers our appreciation. 🙂

With thanks & #UberDriverLove,

The Uber Chicago Team
