Got your note and wanted to share this story with you - let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!
We launched on June 1, 2014. Growth in 2014 and 2015 have both been massive. A little over a year later, Uber is providing hundreds of thousands of safe rides each week in Austin.
HERE is another article on the subject. For added background - there's been several studies in Seattle, Philly and DC that all indicate the intuitive answer here that 'having more safe, reliable rides' cuts down on DWIs.
you can just note me as an Uber representative, thanks!
