Hey Logan,
You spoke, DC listened.

Nearly two years ago, the DC Council secured a place for Uber in the District. Today, we are thrilled to announce that the Council has passed a comprehensive ridesharing framework, providing a permanent home for uberX in the District. With this legislation, DC has become a trailblazer in the transportation industry by embracing innovation, supporting consumer choice and empowering small business owners.

From the beginning, Uber has required extensive background checks, vehicle inspections and top quality insurance coverage. This legislation affirms that responsibility and ensures that uberX is the safest and most reliable way to get around the District, and throughout the country.

What's in the bill:
  • Mandatory county, federal and multi-state background checks going back 7 years
  • $1 million primary insurance coverage from the moment a driver accepts a request - 20x more than required by DC Taxis
  • Annual vehicle safety inspections by a certified mechanic
Councilmembers Cheh and Grosso have displayed tremendous leadership in pushing through this bill, and we are proud that Uber’s safety standards have set the bar for ridesharing in DC.
Thank Councilmembers
Mary Cheh & David Grosso

Last But Not Least - Thank You, DC!

You took to Twitter and Facebook,  and sent countless emails and phone calls to stand up for ridesharing in the District and it’s thanks to your unwavering support that we are able to send this email today. With the bill passed, it's time to drop Mayor Gray a line asking him to sign the bill into law quickly.

We're proud to be a part of the District and we look forward to the years to come.

Thank you, Washington.

Uber on,
Team Uber DC
