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 rides and deliveries
We’re pledging 10 million free rides, meals, and deliveries for frontline healthcare workers, seniors, and people in need around the world.
Helping drivers and delivery people
To support drivers and delivery people 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.
Millions of restaurant workers and delivery people have been affected by this crisis. Supporting our local restaurants has never been more important.
“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.”

Promoting health and safety
Protecting the health and safety of people in our communities is our top priority—from the COVID-19 crisis through 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 delivery people safe
The health and safety of drivers and delivery people is always our priority. We’ve compiled safety resources and stood up programs, like providing drivers and delivery people with masks, sanitizers, and wipes, to help them take care of themselves during this uncertain time.
