Our mission

Uber's mission is to bring transport to everyone, everywhere.

We were founded in 2009 to solve an important problem: how do you take a trip at the push of a button? More than five billion trips later, we've started tackling even greater challenges: making transport safer with self-driving cars, delivering food quickly and affordably with Uber Eats, and reducing congestion in cities by getting more people into fewer cars.
