Uber supporting communities
The world as we know it has changed. But as communities come together in this unprecedented time, one thing is certain: through resourcefulness, compassion and innovation, we'll get there together. See how Uber is working with communities to move forward during this time.
10 million trips and deliveries
We’re pledging 10 million free trips and deliveries of food for frontline healthcare workers, senior citizens and people in need around the world.
Helping drivers and couriers
To support drivers and couriers during this time, we’ve built an in-app COVID-19 hub with the latest safety tips, resources to help them apply for financial relief, and access to additional earning opportunities through the Work Hub.
“Healthcare workers are fighting for us on the front lines of this battle, and we’ve got their backs. This generous partnership with Uber will help us offer support to the New Yorkers who are seeing us through this crisis.”
– Mayor Bill de Blasio, NYC
Helping our communities around the world
As countries around the world address the COVID-19 crisis head-on, we’re doing our small part to help through our social responsibility commitments. See how we're working with cities and nonprofits to support our communities and heroes on the front lines.
"We're thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Uber to help feed communities when people need it most. During this challenging time, we've worked closely with our large network of food banks and the team at Uber to leverage their existing platform and find new ways to help our neighbours in need."
– Nikki Drevich, Interim Chief Development Officer, Feeding America
Promoting health and safety
Protecting the health and safety of people in our communities is our top priority – from the COVID-19 crisis to recovery.
Supporting public safety
We've developed health and safety tips and are sharing them across our channels with every rider, customer and earner globally. We’re reminding everyone who uses Uber to follow advice from public health authorities. And we're asking our riders to stay home so we can help move what matters.
Keeping drivers and couriers safe
The health and safety of drivers and couriers is always our priority. We’ve compiled safety resources and supported programmes like providing drivers and couriers with masks, sanitisers and wipes to help them take care of themselves during this uncertain time.
