Building a future with more shared and active mobility and cleaner, happier cities.
Our goal is to make every journey a shared one. When we help more people move with fewer, fuller, and more efficient cars, we may help save fuel, improve air quality, and increase a transportation system’s efficiency with each trip. Just what our cities need.
How do we help reduce transportation’s immense carbon footprint?
Globally, emissions from personal car–dominated transportation can account for one-fifth to two-thirds of a city’s carbon footprint. Such emissions can also cause half or more of urban air pollution around the world. We have to do better.
Shared trips can be more sustainable trips
Pooling makes a difference
More people in fewer, more efficient cars can mean less environmental impact per person. And lower prices offer better access to affordable transit for people in rural and underserved areas, where existing infrastructure doesn’t reach.
Saving resources worldwide
In 2017 alone, drivers served 35 million riders in UberPool and Express Pool trips. If these riders had instead driven by themselves, cities might have seen an additional 314 million vehicle miles and 82,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
Cleaner air in London
The air quality in the world’s largest cities is a growing problem that affects us all. That’s why we announced a Clean Air Plan in the UK with a series of measures for drivers, riders, and cities.
To help reach the goal, we’re offering cash incentives for drivers to go hybrid
A clean air fee of 15 pence per mile will be added to every trip booked through the Uber app in London, every penny of which will go toward helping drivers upgrade into an electric vehicle and to other clean-air initiatives.
