Ringing in 2017 in New Jersey

Happy New Year, New Jersey!

After several New Year’s Eves under our belt, we’ve learned that millions of people in cities around the world rely on Uber for a safe, reliable ride to and from their celebrations. This year, we wanted to spotlight how riders in the Garden State used Uber when ringing in the New Year. Check out these 4 fun facts!

1. Sometimes one celebration isn’t enough! The biggest party hopper took 7 rides throughout the evening.

2. Don’t be late to the party! 1,171 riders arrived just in time to ring in the New Year, getting out of their Ubers within 9 minutes of midnight.

3. Share the ride and the cost! 17,544 riders took uberPOOL and/or used our split fare feature when heading to and from their celebrations!

4. Be there soon! 712 riders used our “Share Status” feature to let their friends/family know they were on their way.

 

Thank you to the 13,555 drivers who moved New Jersey safely, and to the riders who let us be part of their evening.  Here’s to 2017: we hope you’ll join us again for the ride.
