Here’s to the Men Who Move Philly

From daytime meetings, to sports events, to Friday night family dinners, Uber Philly helps move modern-day men. This Sunday, June 21, in honor of the men that shape our lives, select driver-partners will surprise riders with gift boxes from local apparel brand United by Blue.* Keep the gift for yourself, or share it with a special man in your life.


In celebration of the men who move Philly, we teamed up with United by Blue to make sure three of our top driver-partners—all of whom are also fathers—are styled for summer. We then spent an afternoon at the United by Blue headquarters in Old City, chatting about what motivates them to drive with Uber and what it means to be a dad.

“It gives me the time and flexibility to spend time with my 3-year-old son. We watch educational cartoons together and I get to watch him grow up.”
“Uber has been a big help. I now can be there for my kids’ birthday parties and this year we are able to spend July 4th weekend at the beach. My kids love it and that makes me happy.”
“It’s a cool way for young professionals to supplement their income. I can now afford to send my daughter to lyrical dance and my son to karate and I don’t have to worry about paying the next bill. I am my own boss.”


United by Blue is a local apparel brand dedicated to environmental responsibility. For every product sold, they remove one pound of trash from our oceans and waterways. Check out the website to see how you can be involved at

*While supplies last. Not all driver-partners will have gift boxes in their cars.
