Yesterday, October 20th, 2015, Uber unveiled a New York State Economic Impact Report, which projects that Uber will bring 13,000 jobs to the Empire State in the first year of operating, while providing access to reliable and affordable rides, as an alternative to taxis or other expensive transportation options.
Across the United States and in New York City, Uber offers riders the ability to find a safe, affordable way to get around their communities and drivers the opportunity to earn income on their own schedule – but right now New Yorkers outside of NYC are missing out.
For far too long, New Yorkers — especially in communities Upstate, including my hometown of Buffalo, NY — have seen jobs leave the state rather than be created right here. But New York State’s economy is finally turning around thanks to investment in innovators. Uber can help continue that revitalization by creating 13,000 jobs in New York State in the first year of operating alone!
Uber can also make New York a safer place to live by reducing drunk driving throughout the State. A recent, independent study conducted by Temple University found that cities where Uber operates have 3.6%-5.6% fewer drunk driving deaths than cities without access to ridesharing.
