Thank You, New York City
We want to thank you for your support in keeping Uber—and NYC—moving.
As NYC Deputy Mayor Shorris said, we have “agreed to maintain [our] approximate current rate of growth” and we look forward to welcoming thousands of new driver partners onto our platform to support the 100,000 new riders trying Uber in New York City each month for the first time.
The terms of the agreement with Mayor de Blasio’s administration and the City Council are to collaborate on a transportation study, and work together on ways to continue expanding economic opportunity, mobility, and transportation access across the city. New drivers will continue to be able to join the for-hire industry, and partner with Uber.
This is great news for all New Yorkers, including Uber riders and drivers. Your voice made it possible.
We’d also like to thank all the elected officials who opposed the proposed cap legislation:
NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo
NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams
Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr.
State Assemblyman Luis Sepúlveda
State Assemblyman José Rivera

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
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.
