Uber News For Digital Marketers

The first Uber ride was July 5th, 2010, launching a new way to travel. Uber started as the simple idea to hire a ride from your phone and has grown into a multinational corporation offering food delivery, ridesharing, scooters, bikes and, of course, the original ride hailing service that started it all. Uber is available in more than 600 cities worldwide, and 14 million Uber trips are taken daily. Uber dominates the ride-sharing business with competitor Lyft, and continues to innovate through strategic partnerships with charitable organizations, marketing initiatives and advertising campaigns.
