Uber reimagines the way the world moves for the better
Uber.com is a technology company headquartered in San Francisco, California, with operations in over 633 cities worldwide. It develops, markets, and operates the Uber mobile app, which allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request, which is then routed to drivers who use their own cars. Uber drivers are independent contractors who receive 80% of the fare and pay for their own gas, car depreciation, and maintenance.
Rides and beyond
Uber is committing to becoming a fully electric, zero-emission platform by 2040. This goal is part of the Uber movement to reduce its own environmental impact--the company has also pledged to invest in sustainable transport solutions and cut down on its energy consumption. CEO Dara Khosrowshahi announced the milestone in a recent interview with The New York Times, highlighting the need for big companies to take the lead on climate change. The commitment comes as municipalities around the world are looking to restrict or ban ride-sharing services because of their impact on traffic and pollution. The news was welcomed by many and underscores Uber's dedication to sustainability.
If you're like most people, you only have one car. And, if you're like most people, you use that car for a lot of different things - taking the kids to school, going to work, running errands. It can be a hassle juggling all those different obligations and managing all the different schedules. But what if there was an easier way? What if you could use your one car for all those different trips without having to worry about parking, gas, or mileage? Well, now there's a solution: Uber Rentals. With Uber Rentals, you can book a rental car for your multi-stop trips. That way, you'll have one driver and one car, and you'll save time. Plus, it's more affordable than renting from a traditional car rental company.
