How we partner with cities
Our relationship with you might start with a tap, but with cities it runs deeper. Our goal is to serve as a model for others to improve quality of life and build smarter, more efficient cities in the future.
Our anonymized data is shared with urban planners and local leaders to help inform their decisions on infrastructure and transit.
Helping prevent impaired driving by encouraging people to make safer choices can make roads safer for everyone.
Uber does not tolerate the use of alcohol or drugs by drivers using the Uber app. If you believe your driver may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, please have the driver end the trip immediately.
Commercial vehicles may be subject to additional state government taxes, which would be over and above the toll.
Uber communicates your trip request exclusively to a licensed private-hire vehicle operator. All vehicles used meet the requirements of the PBefG and BOKraft. All drivers have a private-hire driving license. Each trip is insured by the operator’s motor insurance.
In Berlin, we mediate trips for ennoo Dienste GmbH, which is the responsible PHV operator. Whether you’re headed to work, to the airport, or to a party in the evening, Uber always delivers an affordable, safe, and reliable ride that is carried out by a professional transportation provider. With just the push of a button, you’ll be picked up by a vehicle of the transport operator. The Uber app’s GPS function determines your location. Before you enter the vehicle, you’ll see the driver’s photo, name, and license plate number. When you arrive at your destination, you just get out—the payment is completely cashless.
In Berlin, Uber provides five ride options: UberX, UberXL, Premium, Green and Taxi. With UberX, UberXL, Premium and Green, you can arrange a trip with an Uber driver-partner. With Taxi, you can arrange a trip with a regular taxi driver, with pricing at the official taxi rates. Tariffs of the Berlin Taxi Tariff Regulation apply, including applicable surcharges.
