Uber Surpasses One Billion Rides


Uber has reached a new milestone: It’s one billionth ride.

The company, which launched in June 2010, announced the accomplishment — which happened Christmas Eve in London, England — in a blog post Wednesday.

“One billion. That’s a whole lot of riders and drivers sharing the road, special moments, and celebrations together,” Uber said. “Certainly far more than we ever imagined when we got started in San Francisco five and a half years ago.”

An uberX driver, Ara, picked up ‘Marvin’ in a blue Honda Insight Hybrid, and drove him from London Fields, Hackney to Hoxton for £5, which is roughly $7.40.

Marvin, for being the one billionth customer will receive one year’s worth of free rides while driver Ara will be gifted a vacation courtesy of Uber to the city of his choice.

Also, to celebrate the area where the milestone was reached, Uber will make a donation to a local charity: the Hackney Pirates. The agency aids in the development of the “literacy, confidence, and perseverance” of youths aged 9-12 across the borough of Hackney, “so that they are set up for success both in school and beyond.”
