To support disaster recovery efforts following Hurricane Michael, we are providing rides, food, and relief to the families and communities affected by the storm. Our teams are working with local officials to understand where these services can be most helpful.

To support displaced families throughout the Southeast, we are working directly with government officials and the American Red Cross. Our current efforts include:

  • Providing free rides up to $25 each to and from state-approved evacuation shelters in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama so people in impacted areas can access transportation when they most need it. See below for state-specific details on rides in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama  (list of shelters here). Terms apply.
  • Coordinating with Airlink to provide transportation to their first responders on the ground
  • Coordinating with local partners to deliver donations of food to volunteers
  • Providing discounted meals to law enforcement working tirelessly to keep our communities safe

If you are a government, nonprofit, or other organization with an immediate need for rides or are interested in partnering on other response efforts, please email us at SErelief@uber.com and we will respond as soon as possible.
