Clear your calendars—#UberKITTENS are coming to Hudson County!

Clear your calendars—the kittens are coming.

On Thursday, October 29, riders across Jersey City and Hoboken can request the company of a few furry friends at their office with a tap of the app. If matched, riders will have the chance to snuggle the kittens, test their skills in the workplace (they are excellent paper shredders), and even adopt a kitten if they pass the interview stage.


Request KITTENS in your app for the chance to snuggle with UberKITTENS!


There’s more to UberKITTENS than just fierce kitten snuggles. For the $30 “snuggle fee,” Uber will turn around and support the Liberty Humane Society. Liberty Humane Society’s mission is to foster a community of compassion and respect, and provide animals in need with a chance at a lifelong, loving home.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. OPEN the app between 11am–3pm in Jersey City or Hoboken on Thursday, October 29
  2. REQUEST the ‘KITTENS’ option on the bottom slider in your app starting at 11am
  3. If matched, the kittens will arrive for 15 minutes of snuggle time, with the opportunity to adopt one of the cats

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

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–
