Uber started out to solve a simple problem: the need to get a ride across town.  Six years and one billion trips later, we’ve stumbled upon something a bit bigger: a new way to help tackle congestion—one of the most serious challenges cities face today.
Using technology, Uber makes it quick and easy for people headed in the same direction at the same time to share their journey.  It’s carpooling at the press of a button.  And by getting more people into fewer cars we’ve proven you can reduce congestion and pollution overtime.  uberPOOL in Los Angeles, for example, cut the number of kilometers driven across town by 12.7 million and carbon dioxide pollution by 1,400 metric in just eight months in Los Angeles.
Longer term, we’re optimistic that smartphone apps like Uber can also offer a real alternative to individual car ownership.  After all, if you can press a button and get an affordable ride across town in minutes, 24-hours a day, why bother to own a car?  There is an alternative to a world that looks like a parking lot and moves like a traffic jam.  We’re looking for smart, can do people who want to make that future possible.
About Public Policy at Uber
The reforms needed are relatively simple: the right for one citizen to drive another citizen across town so long as certain important consumer protections requirements are met.  The idea is not all that radical.  But in many cities outdated regulations are holding back progress—and in places where reform has been possible, entrenched interests often try to turn the clock back.
Our public policy team is responsible for working with policy makers and third parties to make the positive case for change.  That’s partly about building lasting relationships in the cities where we operate with politicians and their staff so they understand the benefits of this new model.  It also about figuring out the best local regulatory framework and then developing campaigns to push reform through.
