Together on the road to zero emissions
Uber changed the way the world moves. And we’re committed to changing the way the world moves forward. That’s why we’re announcing our commitment to becoming a zero-emission platform in US and Canadian cities as well as in major global cities where we can ensure a fair transition for drivers, by 2030—a goal that can only be achieved by working together.
Helping you go electric
Drivers like you are leading the way toward a greener future, and Uber is committed to supporting you. That’s why we’re launching the Green Future program, to provide access to resources valued at $800 million to help hundreds of thousands of drivers like you transition to battery electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025.
If you’re thinking about making the switch, here are some ways we can help you:
Zero Emissions incentive
Drivers of fully electric vehicles (EVs) are eligible for the Zero Emissions incentive, which lets them earn an extra $1 on every Uber trip (up to $4,000 annually) until December 31, 2022. (1)
We launched Uber Green in September 2020, a low-emission ride option that connects riders with drivers using hybrid and fully electric vehicles. On each Uber Green trip, EV drivers earn an extra $0.50 paid by riders when they select Uber Green. (2) This $0.50 is in addition to extra earnings from the Zero Emissions incentive.
