Uber is proud to announce a national partnership with the American Red Cross to help cities and citizens during disasters. The partnership took effect last week as this season’s first tropical storm, Arthur, developed. Uber is partnering with the American Red Cross1 to help communities’ disaster relief efforts.
- During disasters and relevant states of emergency, Uber is committing to donate its commissions on surge trips to the American Red Cross.
- That means that for trips with elevated pricing, 20% of the total fare will be donated to the American Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts.
- Uber will also support ongoing community events like blood drives and donation drives with safe, affordable and reliable transportation options for American Red Cross’ volunteers and participating community members.
