To help those who most need it, Uber is offering 10 million free rides and deliveries amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. This charitable effort is mainly meant to assist healthcare workers and seniors, the people who are the most vulnerable to the virus, alongside other individuals like government officials and volunteers.
“We’re ready to work with more cities, food banks, hospitals and others around the world to move whatever matters most to them. Organizations looking for support with rides or food deliveries can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org,” CEO Dara Khosrowshahi stated.
All costs, including drivers’ pays, will be covered by Uber, extending help and support to the most vulnerable. The company will also be providing cleaning supplies to drivers to help thoroughly disinfect their cars.
