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.

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.
