Associate General Counsel, APAC

Uber Overview

About Uber

Uber started out to solve a simple problem: the need to get a ride across town. Seven years and two 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 over time. uberPOOL has in just 7 months into 2016 cut the number of miles driven by 312,344,908 million and carbon dioxide pollution by 55,560 metric tons.

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.
