At Uber, communities’ matter to us and we are proud of what we have achieved in India in the last 8 years. Over the years, Uber has changed how the world moves by powering billions of rides and deliveries, connecting millions of riders, businesses, drivers, and couriers across the world at a scale like no other. We aim to amplify the company’s success with the help of technology and product innovation as we develop customer-first products for our global and Indian market. Our India journey is only just beginning and we look forward to celebrating many more milestones in the years to come.”
