The 2017 Recap: 6 new ways we became a part of your life.

January 25, 2018 / India

What an amazing year 2017 was. Even though we expanded the Uberverse far and wide, we made sure that we got closer to you. Here are a few ways in which we did that.

All eyes and ears? Your year with Uber is here.

To end 2017 with a flourish, we decided to take a trip down memory lane & created a little something special to celebrate your year with Uber. A personalized music video we bet you’ll love!

We drove into your living rooms!

Through the TV of course. In 2017 we aired our first TV commercial to reassure you that you can sit back and relax in an Uber the way you would in your own car. Isey apni hi gaadi samjho was all about human connections and it touched millions of hearts.


Through your tummy, straight to your heart.

What better way to get there, right? With the tap of a button, we brought you food from your favorite restaurants as we launched Uber Eats in Mumbai in May. By the end of the year, we became the go-to solution for tummy rumbles across 7 cities in India.

More trips than half the population in India

Yes, you read that right. In 2017 we reached the incredible 700 million trips mark. Considering that’s more trips than half the number of people living in our country, it was quite the milestone.

 Your stories driven by Uber

In 2017 we discovered that the tales we heard from our driver partners and riders were nothing short of inspirational. So we went into storytelling gear and brought them alive through heartwarming films. Uber Journeys is a showcase of the extraordinary journeys of ordinary people.


Driving change

At Uber, we strongly believe in providing driver partners with the flexibility to work on their own schedules. By the end of last year, we had created 4.5 lakh livelihood opportunities.

We had an absolute ball in 2017, and 2018 seems to be beaming at us with an array of fresh new possibilities too. Here’s to a fabulous year ahead.
