5 Reasons Why the Uber Boston Community Is Thankful

There are many reasons to give thanks. This time of year, we gather with loved ones to express gratitude and celebrate tradition over full plates. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the Uber Boston team and driver-partners would like to share why we are thankful.

“I’m giving thanks for life, my family, and being able to provide for them any way possible!”


“I’m thankful that I can see my two boys thrive both socially and academically. Thanks to Uber I am able to provide for them.”


“I came from Brazil 26 years ago. I have a beautiful family and can now be at home with them and an Uber driver-partner. Meeting so many wonderful people makes my life even better and I’m so grateful.”

“I moved to Boston about a year ago. Being away from my family back home, I’m thankful for the family I’ve made here in Boston and at Uber.”

4. The Support of the Uber Community

“I’m grateful for all the driver-partners who make my day brighter through a friendly greeting, casual banter, or a fun playlist.”

“I am a single dad of two little girls. Uber provided me with a perfect work schedule so I can still be a full-time parent and provide for my family. For that I am always going to be thankful.”


“Uber has given me the freedom to travel the world, be myself, and introduced me to my fiancé!”


“Uber has enabled me to go back to school and also take care of my son. Without this partnership, I would not have been able to achieve this!”

“I’m thankful that Uber gave me a rewarding opportunity to not only earn a living, but have the chance to achieve more.”


“I have all the time I want to spend with my 9-month old baby girl. And yet I can make enough to take care of her needs.”

“I have a roof over my head, enough food to eat, and freedom of speech. Today I give thanks to God for keeping me alive.”
