CFC Big Ideas helps Uber to resume work in the Ukrainian cities, where operations were temporarily unavailable due to Russian aggression, as well as to launch the service in new cities across Ukraine: Bila Tserkva, Kremenchuk, Zhytomyr, Cherkasy, Lutsk, Rivne and Khmelnytskyi.
The CFC team is also negotiating with city councils representatives to provide them with Uber promocodes for free rides to meet the transportation needs of the cities’ critical infrastructure workers. For example, Uber has provided 10,000 free rides for critical infrastructure, healthcare and social services workers in Kyiv – https://kyivcity.gov.ua/news/kompaniya_Uber_nadala_10_tisyach_bezkoshtovnikh_pozdok_dlya_potreb_pratsivnikiv_kritichno_infrastrukturi_sferi_okhoroni_zdorovya_ta_sotsialnikh_sluzhb_kiyeva/.
The CFC team also helped Uber highlight its partnership with the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the Kyiv Charitable Foundation, in which Uber provides medical workers of 100 hospitals across Ukraine with free rides.
As part of the initiative launched in August, Uber has pledged to provide nearly 35,000 promocodes for free trips to hospitals every month, financing up to UAH 8 million in trips monthly. You can read more about the initiative here: https://uk.interfax.com.ua/news/press-release/853973.html.
