Uber is a transportation network company (TNC) that operates a global ride-hailing platform. It was founded in 2009 by Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Uber provides a mobile app that connects passengers with drivers. Passengers can request rides through the app, specifying their pickup and drop-off locations. Nearby drivers who are registered with Uber can accept the ride request and provide transportation to the passengers. The app provides real-time tracking of the driver’s location and estimated arrival time.

Uber offers various types of ride options, including economy cars, luxury vehicles, shared rides, and more, depending on the region. The app provides upfront pricing estimates based on the pickup and drop-off locations, allowing passengers to know the cost of the ride before confirming the request.

Uber drivers use their own personal vehicles to provide rides to passengers. They go through a screening process that includes background checks, driving record checks, and vehicle inspections to ensure safety and quality.

The Uber app also handles payment transactions, allowing passengers to pay for their rides electronically through the app. Users can link their credit cards, debit cards, or other digital payment methods to their Uber account.

Uber has expanded its services beyond ride-hailing and offers additional options, such as Uber Eats, a food delivery service that enables users to order food from restaurants and have it delivered to their location. In select cities, Uber has also introduced other transportation options like e-scooters and e-bikes.

Uber operates in numerous cities around the world, providing a convenient and accessible alternative to traditional taxis and car services.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
