Uber started in 2009 when two friends were vacationing in Paris and couldn’t catch a taxi. The idea behind getting a ride at the push of a button was then invented. The service was first launched in San Francisco and since then, the service is now offered in 65 countries. After their launch, more ideas were generated and Uber now has a carpool option and a service that will deliver food to your door called UberEats.
As of 2017, Uber had completed 5 billion trips across the world with 75 million riders and 3 million drivers. Approximately 15 million trips are completed each day worldwide.
The overall mission of Uber is to to bring transportation for everyone everywhere. Although Uber seems to be meeting their overarching goal of providing safe and efficient transportation while limiting the amount of cars on the road, accidents can still happen and the rideshare accident process can be a little different than your everyday car accident process.
