10 Million Free Rides and Deliveries to Move What MattersWritten by
The coronavirus has turned the world upside down. Some days it feels like everything has changed, and we’ve all had to change with it. A month ago, Uber was connecting 16 million trips a day. Now, we’re urging our riders to stay home if they can.
And even as their lives have been upended, too, drivers, couriers and restaurants are moving what matters: getting first responders to work, and food to those who need it.
Alongside them, we want to do our small part to help. Today, we’re committing to provide 10 million rides and food deliveries to healthcare workers, seniors, and people in need, free of charge.
We’ve already started, with free rides to help healthcare workers get to their jobs, and free meals to help keep them going.
This is just the beginning.
We’re ready to work with more cities, food banks, hospitals and others around the world to move whatever matters most to them. Organizations, healthcare providers and governmental entities looking for support with rides or food deliveries can submit their request directly through this form.
Thank you to the healthcare workers who are saving lives. Thank you to the drivers, delivery people and restaurants who are supporting them. And thank you to all the riders who are doing their part by staying home.
Working together, we can stop this virus and help our communities recover.
