Member News — Uber Hits 10 Billion Rides
July 25th, 2018

Uber started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get a ride at the push of a button? Although our journey is just beginning, we’ve shared some great memories together over the years.  From heartwarming stories of people finding lovejobs andeven having babies in Ubers, we wouldn’t be where we are today without the incredible riders, drivers and cities we serve.

We’ve hit some pretty exciting milestones together in the past, and this latest one is no different. On Sunday, June 10, 173 trips and deliveries started simultaneously at 10:12pm GMT, putting us over 10 billion completed trips.

These trips happened in more than 21 countries across five continents, in cities like Montreal, Mexico City and Miami. Latin America took the top spot for most simultaneous trips on a continent. And a few lucky eaters across five countries were munching on McDonald’s, noodles, sushi, burgers and tacos at the time. The shortest trip was an Uber Eats delivery, clocking in at just over half a mile, while the longest trip was a traveler taking a 41-mile ride to the airport in Denver. And five riders were on their first Uber trips ever!

It’s safe to say we’re just as excited as we were on Day 1 to continue building the best products and experiences for the next 10 billion trips. From all of us at Uber, thank you.
