Stand Up for Uber in Maryland
We need your help! Uber’s future in Maryland is in jeopardy. Before Uber, transportation options in Maryland hadn’t changed in decades. Unfortunately, there are some people who would like to return to the old status quo with limited choice in transportation options.
But together we have a chance to make sure Uber is here to stay. This week, two bills are being considered in the Maryland General Assembly that would modernize Maryland’s laws to make sure you have access to reliable, hassle-free transportation options. The bills would put some of Uber’s constantly improving safety measures into place across the state, including:
- Every driver must pass a rigorous background check, including driving and criminal record
- Every vehicle on the road has been inspected for safety and quality
- Every ridesharing trip is insured up to $1 million
This is the part where you come in: we need you to sign the petition! Then email/tweet/call your state representative and let them know just how much you love Uber and want it to stay an option. Feel free to forward on the sample email we’ve provided by clicking on the representative’s name, below.
This battle won’t be won without you weighing in and asking your representatives to vote “YES” on SB 919 and HB 1160. Let them know #MDNeedsUber. Share with your friends!

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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. 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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
