mission is to bring reliable transportation to everywhere, for everyone. Uber started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get a ride at the touch of a button? Seven years and more than five billion trips later, Uber started tackling an even greater challenge: reducing congestion and pollution in our cities by getting more people into fewer cars.
