You may have read that the taxi industry has filed a lawsuit against Uber in Chicago.

Uber’s technology platform is and has always been legal in Chicago, and despite another transparent attempt by the taxi industry to shut down transportation alternatives, Uber will continue to offer its application to connect Chicagoans to high quality transportation providers.

At Uber, we exist for two reasons:

  • To provide efficient, convenient, and reliable transportation for customers
  • To help our driver partners increase their income and grow their businesses

It is these two goals that motivate our team every day and we believe that our efforts have made the availability, accountability and quality of Chicagoans’ transportation choices much greater today than a year ago. We also know that Uber has helped thousands of Chicago taxi and limo drivers increase their weekly earnings, expand their businesses and improve their lives. We are incredibly proud of this.

We appreciate your business and your support of innovation in a sector that sorely needs it.

Uber on.
