As part of Uber’s commitment to transition to zero-emissions mobility in major cities by 2030 and globally by 2040, the company has today announced the expansion of Uber Green’s availability to Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, and the Waterloo region.
Uber’s sustainable ride options are now available to 1400+ North American cities and towns. In Canada, more riders can push a button and get a hybrid or EV ride in Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Kingston, London, Niagara Falls, Regina, Saskatoon, Windsor, and Winnipeg.
Uber Green fits into Uber’s $800 million investment focused on getting more zero-emission vehicles on the road. In Canada, Uber has launched Zero Emission incentives and a partnership with GM to help drivers make the switch.
Uber also joined the Amazon Climate Pledge in December and will be working with leading companies from around the world to share best practices and spur increased climate investment and ambition to expedite the global transition to clean energy.
Drivers with electric or hybrid will earn $.50 extra for every Uber Green trip completed, whereas drivers with zero-emission vehicles (a battery EV) will receive an additional $1.00 for every trip they complete.
