Together on the road to zero emissions
Uber helped change the way the world moves. And we’re committed to changing the way the world moves forward. That’s why we’re announcing our commitment to becoming a zero-emission platform in US and Canadian cities as well as in major global cities where we can ensure a fair transition for drivers, by 2030—a goal that can only be achieved by working together.
Why go electric?
There are lots of reasons to make the switch to an electric vehicle, also known as an EV.
EVs enjoy reduced costs with the price of electricity compared to petrol or diesel as fuel
Better for your city
Driving EVs helps reduce emissions, lower air pollution levels making your city a healthier place for everyone
EV technology makes for a great ride. Drivers who’ve made the switch say their new EVs are comfortable and easy to maintain, and that their riders also love the quieter, smoother trips.
Making charging work for you
EV drivers charge using either public or home chargers, or a combination of the two.
Public chargers can come in a variety of types and speeds. As you prepare to make the switch to EV, it’s worth researching the public charging options near to you and for example if you need to become a subscriber to use them.
If you do have access to off-street parking like a private driveway or garage overnight, installing a home charger can make charging an EV convenient and more affordable. Home charger specifications also vary, so exploring which option could be the best fit for your vehicle is well worthwhile.
Uber helping you go electric
Drivers like you are leading the way toward a greener future, and Uber is committed to supporting you. That’s why we’re launching the Green Future program, to provide access to resources valued at $800 million to help hundreds of thousands of drivers like you transition to battery electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025.
If you’re thinking about making the switch, here are some ways we can help you:
Zero Emissions incentive
Drivers of fully electric vehicles are eligible for the Zero Emissions incentive, which lets them earn an extra $1 per ride on eligible rides. The incentive is available for a limited time. See terms.¹
