Moving New Jersey for 2 Years
Two years ago today we launched Uber New Jersey, providing riders with access to safe, reliable transportation across the Garden State. From Trenton and Jersey City to Morristown and beyond, New Jersey was – and is – on the move.
In that time, New Jersey riders have relied on Uber for more than 9.5 million trips. From late night runs to early morning commutes, more and more people across the state are turning to Uber to meet their transportation needs.
Since our launch, Uber riders and driver-partners have traveled over 66 million miles together and taken more than 9.5 million trips across New Jersey.
This movement couldn’t have happened without our driver-partners. These are the men and women who move us all day long. Today, we have more than 13,000 New Jersey residents who drive on the Uber network in New Jersey.
For many of these drivers, Uber offers a way to supplement their existing income, allowing them to work as much as or as little as they need to reach a specific goal, like saving up for a vacation or making ends meet between jobs: 48% of driver-partners in New Jersey work less than 10 hours per week. Going forward, we’re excited to bring more driver-partners to New Jersey and offer a flexible way for more people to advance their personal and financial goals by partnering with Uber.
And our driver-partners have helped us travel a long way. Since we launched in November 2013, Uber riders and driver-partners have traveled more than 66 million miles together across the State. With that many miles, you could ride round trip from Cape May to Hoboken 214,655 times, circle the globe 2,670 times, or even travel to the moon and back 139 times.
New Jersey never stops moving, and since our launch, neither have we.
As we look ahead, we like what we see: New Jersey’s energy keeps us moving. We’ll continue providing access to safe, reliable transportation while at the same time partnering with New Jersey on initiatives that improve our communities – whether it’s making the streets safer in Evesham, promoting the the use of designated drivers with the HERO Campaign, or helping fight hunger in North Jersey, we’re ready to do our part.
Here’s to another great year. Uber on, New Jersey.
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.
