When shared with local governments, our resources and technology can also help cities become safer, more efficient, and more beautiful.
Partnering with transit systems
Strengthening public transit
Helping to find a solution to first- and last-mile challenges extends the reach of public transit systems.
Filling gaps in transit
Riders can request a ride between 10pm and 4am, when public transit might not run as often or is unavailable.
Providing more transit options
To help make your everyday commute easier, more transit apps from around the world will be available within the Uber app.
Caring for the climate
Innovative new products and features make it even easier for riders to share their journeys together. We’re collaborating with experts in the hybrid and electric vehicle field to understand how technology can help reduce carbon emissions.
Clean air in the UK
Our goal for London is a big one: 100% hybrid or battery-electric cars for UberX. An extra fee of 15 pence per mile on every trip in London will go toward helping drivers update their vehicles.
Fewer parking lots, happier cities
Ridesharing and easier access to public transit can reduce the need for parking lots.
The average car remains parked 95% of the time. Pivoting from private car ownership to multimodal transportation could reduce parking lots and free up much needed space.
Planning curbs of the future
A better understanding of how curbs are used can help cities around the world prepare for a future where more and more of us are accessing transportation through a combination of shared modes, rather than relying on our own vehicles.
