Despite your support, Uber is unable to operate in Eugene

When we launched in Eugene seven months ago, we set out to offer the community a safe, innovative and reliable way to move around town and provide an opportunity for a wide range of folks — retirees, teachers, students, parents — to supplement their incomes, start small businesses, finish school, pay off debt, and support their families. During this time, we have been proud to deliver on our promise to Eugene riders and drivers to help cut down on drunk driving, serve all communities, increase transit to small business and support the local economy. Just like in Eugene, Uber is transforming the way people move around in over 300 cities around the world, covering 68% of the U.S population and completing millions of trips every week. When the Eugene City Council voted to apply outdated code to Transportation Network Companies like Uber, they created a regulatory climate that makes it impossible for the small businesses that partner with Uber to thrive and meet the high standard of service and safety residents have come to expect. By adopting these rules, Eugene officials have eliminated hundreds of jobs and a safe transportation alternative for their city. For this reason, we are forced to make the difficult decision to pause operations in Eugene starting Sunday, April 5 at 10 AM.

Why Orlando's Ridesharing Bill Doesn't Work

Time to Move Florida Forward

In 2014, Florida is on pace to become the third most populous state in the country. But the state’s current transportation ecosystem simply isn’t able to keep up. Millions of residents and visitors don’t have access to efficient, reliable and modern transportation options. If the Sunshine State truly intends to thrive as a destination that fosters innovation and economic growth, its leaders should stand up for more, better, global transportation options like Uber.
