Let’s build the road to recovery

Drivers are at the heart of everything we do. As the entire nation has come to a halt, so has each driver who helped us move forward.

Remember Nitesh, who safely drove us home late at night, Joseph who made sure we got to that meeting in time, Ashar with the loudest thank you, and Jyoti with the longest anecdote about her ups and downs in life.

For all the times they went the extra mile for us and our families, safely returned belongings we left behind and lifted our spirits after a hard day - now it's our turn.

Thank you to our partners, including Pop-band Sanam, for supporting those who move us forward. You can watch their video tribute to drivers below.


The Uber Care Driver Fund

We have announced immediate grants through the Uber Care Driver Fund, with an Uber-funded corpus of INR 25 crore to ensure support for drivers.

  • Each eligible driver's family will get a grant to meet their essential needs.
  • This will be an outright grant that they won’t have to repay.
  • As of 29th April, so far 75,000 drivers have received cash grants for immediate and essential family needs from the Uber Care Driver Fund

This fund is in addition to the initiatives we have undertaken since the beginning of the lockdown - waiver of lease rentals, facilitation of EMI relief, provision of micro-credit & insurance solutions, and access to free unlimited consultations from doctors online.

Here’s how you can support

We invite you to contribute to this fund and help the ones who have always moved you forward. Your contributions will go a long way in providing additional support to drivers.

This is a 100% not-for-profit campaign, and we will disclose the disbursement progress of the fund in a transparency report. This will be shared with all contributors at the end of the campaign, along with regular updates to donors on the website. 

Even as we all stay apart, let’s come together to help the driver community move past these trying times.

To our supporters,

Thank you for taking action & stepping up for the driver community. Through the Uber Care Driver Fund, over 95,000 drivers received cash grants for immediate and essential family needs.

The support has been overwhelming & the kind messages you left for drivers have been passed on. Thank you for recounting all the times they went the extra mile for us and our families - dropped us home late at night, safely returned belongings we left behind and lifted our spirits after a hard day.

To hear from drivers directly, you can watch the videos they sent us on the webpage http://t.uber.com/support-uber-driver-fund

We could not have achieved this without the support, involvement & encouragement from more than 28,000 contributors. Your donations helped drivers move forward during this challenging time.

Thank you once again,

To our supporters,

Thank you for your generosity. Two weeks ago, we announced the Uber Care Driver Fund to help drivers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with an initial commitment of INR 25 crores. Today, we’re pleased to report that 55,000 drivers across India have received cash grants for immediate and essential family needs.

We also opened up the fund to contributions from Uber employees, riders, corporations and NGOs. In just two weeks, 23,000 riders, and employees have collectively contributed INR 2.15 crores, while corporations and NGOs have donated an additional INR 4.28 crores. Most of these donations have already been processed for immediate disbursement to the next batch of drivers.

Drivers have also been deeply appreciative of the generosity of the public. Here’s how you’re making a difference to their lives.

Mukesh Bharthi, Ahmedabad-based driver – “I'm humbled to see the help being offered to all drivers, and am thankful from the bottom of my heart.

Payal Verma, a New Delhi-based driver and single mother of three daughters – “These past days (since the lockdown) have been tough, and we haven’t been able to earn any money. I want to thank you for helping me financially.’’

We are committed to raising an additional INR 25 crores, to reach a combined target of INR 50 crore for the Uber Care Driver Fund. Over the coming weeks, we will continue to reach out to employees, riders, CSR funds and citizens via our partnership with Milaap. We will regularly report contributions and the disbursement to drivers in the days to come.
