Uber Pledges 10 Million Free Rides to Seniors and Healthcare Workers

The company will also deliver free meals to first responders.

Uber has donated 10 million free rides and meal deliveries to healthcare workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as seniors more vulnerable to falling ill. As reported by The Verge, a spokesperson for Uber explained that the company is “working to distribute these meals and rides at scale in the coming months and tailor the offering based on the most pressing, local needs.”

Uber’s pledge will help transport healthcare workers to and from hospitals and patients’ homes. The company is also working with local governments to deliver free Uber Eats meals to first responders and medical professionals in the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, Uber’s website specifies that “shipments of critical goods in the U.S. will be transported with zero profit pricing by Uber Freight.”

Organizations such as clinics and hospitals looking for support with free rides or food deliveries can e-mail Uber at impact2020@uber.com. Head to Uber’s website to learn more about the initiative.
