from F. Jhocson Street to Resorts World Manila

Hindi ko ineexpect ang girlfriend from Uberpool. So pareho kami sa Resorts World Manila pumunta because same event pupuntahan namin. Dahil pareho naman kami ng pupuntahan and mag isa lang kami non, nagsama na kami for the whole event. Ang shy niya while ako daldal lang ng daldal HAHA. Then it turns out same University kami, so we see again each other, confessed our feelings for each other, and damn, ang saya ko kasi nag ka girlfriend ako in an expected way! HAHA! (She's my first btw) Thank you Uber Team, for bringing us together. Amazed na amazed lahat ng kakilala namin how we met HAHA!

from The Medical City to San Bartolome, Novaliches

It was 2014, when almost nobody knew Uber existed. I just had surgery and instead of taking a cab, I decided to try Uber. I was surprised that a Toyota Camry was picking me up. When we finished the trip, I was surprised again when the fare was only a few pesos more than if I had taken a cab. After that, I vowed to never ever take a cab again.

from Robinson's Mall to Aladin Pandacan, Manila

A few minutes after we got home, I immediately noticed that my cellphone was missing. Through the easy access of the Uber application, I was able to contact our driver, Kuya Domingo. Never did we doubt the drivers of Uber for we have read and heard stories from our acquaintances and co-workers that their drivers are truly honest and professional. Again, I would like to thank kuya Domingo Martinez III (Mitsubishi Mirage plate no. NQ 4562) for your honesty and kindness. May our country be filled with people like you! God bless you and your family!

Eksena with kuyang uber driver. While on the trip, meron akong tinatawagan na number sa phone ko. Suddenly, nashocked ako and nagtaka bat nagriring phone ni kuya tas yun pala number nya yun nadial ko. Hahahaha! Nakakahiya talaga. Sorry, kuyang uber! #uberstories

from Imus, Cavite to Dasmariñas, Cavite

One night, I booked UberX to go to my friend's Debut in Dasmariñas, Cavite, I know that Im late for the call time of 7pm and its already 6:10 and still in the house, and the venue is far from home because the it is near Trece Martires and 45 mins is not enough and the problem is Im one of the 18 Roses. But my driver did his best just to go to venue quickly. While we're on the road, we shared stories with several topics but I make sure that I'm not distracting him while driving, and so we safely arrived in the venue 5 mins before the party starts. THANKS YOU SIR FOR SAVING THE DAY !! I gave him a big tip and 5 Stars just to thank him..

from Valero, Makati City to Sampaloc, Manila

I'd like to share how safe uber is. It was my officemates' despedida party at BGC. We drank a lot. And I drank more. We drank and danced. And I was told I was funny-drunk-dancing that night. We all had a goodtime. It's 4am, I booked an uber from my officemates' condo. I would always fight hard with my sleepiness especially when I'm drunk. But that day I lost the battle. I slept!!! The driver woke me up gently and said "Ma'am, andito na po tayo". I would never again sleep but good thing I rode with uber.

from SM Seaside City Cebu to Talamban, Cebu City

Yes, it's nice to be in love and its great to fall in love again. It was a quiet, peaceful night before midnight when my boy next door-25 year old-Marine Engineer uber driver who came all the way from Norway, the most peaceful country in the world shared his beautiful love story along the way in his 4 days old brand new 2017 Suzuki Ertiga car. He's here in Cebu for a short vacation because he will soon to tie the knot to his childhood sweetheart whose now a Canadian citizen. She will fly back to Cebu from Canada few weeks before their wedding day next month. Love really conquers it all! Wherever you are in the world, you go back to the place where it all started to have a lifetime commitment to forever in matrimony.

from GA Tower 1, Mandaluyong to Argo Center, Makati

I had this memorable ride as it was my first day here in Manila rushing to go to my job interview. I crammed & panicked cos it's an hour left before my scheduled time. I ordered breakfast for to-go and I don't know where to eat it. Kuya JR, the kindest Uber driver I've ever met offered me to eat inside his car and I was a bit hesitant cos I was so overwhelmed that the foul smell of "bistek" would over power his car but he did not even cared what his car would smell rather he told me that it's more important for me to eat cos I might faint during my interview, he cracked a joke. And it made me comfortable to eat inside but I made sure not to drop any single morsel or sauce in the perimeters of his clean and well maintained Vios. :)

from 2512 Nakar St San Andres Bukid Manila to Wilcon IT Hub

Mas pipiliin ko ba sumuong sa traffic? Malamang hindi, may Uber kaya. Piliin kong pumasok kahit pagod ang katawan at Isip mo sa mag hapon na trabaho at eskwela sa kagabi. Piliin kong mahintay sa Uber kahit alam mo na may posibilidad na malate. Mas piliin kong maging masaya kesa ma badtrip sa mga pasaway na drivers sa kahabaan ng Osmeña Hiway. Mas pipiliin ko na I enjoy ang biyahe sa umaga dahil eto ang magdadala ng buong araw ko, dito nakasalalay ang pakikipaglaban ko sa sa boredom at antok, sa isip ang bakasyon ay kumakatok. Baliwalain ang katamaran Ituloy ang Laban. Tibay at lakas ng loob. Tuloy lang. May karapatan kang pumili. Piliin mong maging mapagpasalamat sa lahat ng bagay. Sa araw araw, tuwing umaga sa loob ng Uber car, piliin mo.

from Trinoma to St. Dominic 4

This is my first time in uber pool. Every saturday,nag pool na ako pa uwi parang double kasi ang traffic ng weekdays.last May-16, i booked in trinoma landmark (north ave) around 7:30pm. Nag txt agad sa akin ang driver,first time ko sa uber. So, nag hintay ako about 5 mins dumating na sya. Nag confirm sya kung ako tlaga nag book. Bago namin sunduin yung ka uber ko sa sm. nabiruan ko pa.Sabi nya, sino daw kaaway ko? (May sipon kasi ako). Sabi ko na mabait ako. Na sundo na namin yung ka pool ko,ganoon din ginawa nya, nag confirm din sya. Nakakatuwa talaga siya,kaya sinagad ko ang star ko sa kanya. Hahaha!

from Mercury Drug to Pacific Tourist Inn

There was that time na I'm bedridden in a hotel while I'm travelling because of high fever. Can't even move any muscles without being hurt. Worst thing is, I'm running out of medicine. That time, I was travelling alone so wala akong mauutusang bumili ng gamot and hindi ko kabisado yung lugar so what I did is I booked an UberX at the Mercury Drug store that first popped-up on my Uber app then texted the driver if it is possible na bumili ng gamot for me without riding his car. Luckily, he agreed. Started the trip after buying my medicine and track it while being at the hotel. About an hour later, the hotel receptionist told me that there's a person looking for me knowing it's already him. I paid him the medicine plus a small tip of gratitude

from NAIA 3 Arrivals to Mezza II Residences

Last May 25, I was still in Baguio for a vacation and my mom was coming from Bacolod to visit me. The plan was for me to go down ahead of my friends via first class bus but tickets were already sold out for the rest of the day and all I could do is wait for our cars to go down that afternoon. My mom is already 66 and she doesnt know Manila well. I was so stressed that day until my friends suggested I have her picked up by uber. So when her flight arrived that afternoon I booked her an uber while we were still in the car descending Marcos Highway. I called the driver and my mom simultaneously. She was picked up and she arrived in my condo safe and happy. Thank you manong Roldan for picking up nanay. Uber is indeed reliable. #onlychildproblem

from Airport road mactan lapu lapu city to Lahug cebu city

I can rate my self as a hardworking uber driver. To maximize my time online if i need to rest or nap and still far away from home i just find a secure lot to park and sleep in the car if needed. One time as i wake up from a nap in the car which i park at the back of the airport. I saw a father with his son watching planes take off to the air. They are enjoying each moment. It make me smile and said fathers are the best. We do extra efforts just to see our children happy. So i get my self ready to complete trips and get more fathers go home safetly. At the end of the day i took my son to a mall and spent some time with him.. It feels good to be a father..

from Sm Aura Office Tower to 2340 Del Pilar St., Sta. Ana, Manila

Booked an UberPool today. Driver picked me up, saw that there is someone else sharing the trip with me. His name is Juan. While waiting for Juan, a very cute foreigner passed by and I told the driver, "hopefully he is Juan noh? He's cute!" The driver and I laughed. Then all of a sudden the cute foreigner opened the car door. Driver and I cant stop giving each other meaningful glances. We both wanted to laugh. We dropped Juan first and picked up another rider. The driver and I also had an interesting conversation with the new rider. You see Uber, today I booked a ride and gained new friends. It's really just not a ride. UberPool turned my mundane Saturday night into friend-filled evening. We even took a selfie to commemorate the amazing trip

from Kauswagan Road, Talamban, Cebu City to Sirao Garden, Busay, Cebu City

Out of boredom this Summer,I made an escapade adventure to a place where I can be lost. An adventure challenge which I called #LetsGetLost where I allow myself to get lost as I take any available trips in the PUV+Bus terminals going to any destination without any specific purpose. Today I get lost with uber to a place where I've never been to as my uberSTORIES. Equipped with my Samsung phone + monopod and enough money to pay for the trip, I booked Uber driver Raul Sabandon, the perfect adventurous driver to fulfill my adventure with his Suzuki Ertiga 2017 brand new car as we go up the highlands in Busay going all the way to Sirao Garden, the little Amsterdam of Cebu City to hunt for flowers, sweet corns and mountain views thru Facebook live

from Silver City Pasig to Buting Pasig City

I'm not really sure if this is considered as an UBER story but as a rider and patron of UBER going 2yrs now I just recently found out about the FREE RIDE that you can get everytime you refer someone. And so I tried it and I find it really helpful not only for me but most specially to my friends and other colleagues that are not really aware of UBER and uses a different kind of transportation app. With UBER it's basically GIVE AND RECEIVE. I give UBER more patrons and not only "I" but also the persons that I have encouraged to use UBER receives a very special token by getting special promotions. That's why I LOVE USING UBER compared to other transpo apps.Because besides the great drivers you have you also give great promotions for patrons likeme


ME and my friend, RON, was hired by P&G Philippines to choreograph their dance routine on their End-Of-Year Party. It was our first day and we are running out of time coming up with a dance to teach and we were running late on our appointment. We booked an UBER and luckily manong driver is a dancer, He let us play music on his speakers, and even suggested songs and dance steps. We are like having dance jam inside the car. Manong driver said that he enjoyed his time with us and even told us not to pay, but, absolutely we insisted. Manong driver did not just save us on traffic but also on the dance floor. We were on time and was able to teach a dance routine for the first day

Maraming bagay ang Libre. Libre maging masaya, maging Malaya. Pwede din maging libre ang pagkain, pagmamahal at Pangarap na bituin. Sa araw araw na ginawa ng diyos, nagpapa Salamat ako sa Kanya dahil pwede ako umibig at ibigin. Habang nasa biyahe ako sa kahabaan ng traffic sa Zobel Roxas naiisip ko na sadyang mabuti ang Diyos na may gawa ng lahat. Hindi man lahat kayang maangkin, pero lahat pwede hilingin basta kalooban niya ay sundin. Pag nasa Uber ako pool man or x, ang pag cancel ng trip sa akin ay X na X, basta ang Alam ko ang biyahe ko at student discount ay hindi bitin. Kaya ang ratings na binibigay ko sa mga driver halos laging apat or limang bituin. Salamat Uber kasi napaka laking tulong mo sakin, sa simpleng 20% off ay malaki din.

And so I thought only Cebu Pacific has it... I rode one early morning in Uber. I had this promo when I refer my mom to use UBER for the first time. I got an uber ride to the office for 1 peso. I was so ashamed that time, so I hurriedly configured my debit card thinking that the UBER driver would not know how much my fare was. But it didn't work. And so we were in the front of the building and my Piso fare appread. The driver laugh so hard. I paid 5 pesos and driver gave me the 4 pesos and said "Sir, may piso fare din po sa Uber ano?" It really made my day. Thanks to Uber for these promos.

from Bgy. Don Manuel, Quezon City to Angelicum College

I was a newbie Uber rider last year when I had a driver that didn't let me pay for my fare the day I rode an Uber on my way to school. At the end of my trip, I was about to hand him cash as my payment when he suddenly refused to accept it. Instead, he said "Ipandagdag mo na lang 'yan sa baon mo at promise mo na mag-aaral ka ng maigi." One of the small things that means a lot to me and makes me believe that there is still kindness in this world! Thank you, kuya driver.

from Meadowood Executive Village Bacoor to Paco Manila

First time ko mag book via Uber and the driver was so accommodating, yung car nya sobrang bango, linis at lamig kaya ang dami naming napag kwentuhan ni Sir James Christian about Uber, his travel abroads with his child and wife and goals niya na dalhin ang wife niya to Japan or Hong Kong. Anyway, since first time ko sa Uber at first time din yung lugar na pupuntahan ko, naligaw kami ng konti pero nagawan ni driver ng paraan at since wala akong simcard sa phone ko para ma contact ang mom ko, he offered his phone at kinausap mom ko para ituro yung daan. I want to give him an extra para makapag dinner sya ng masarap but he insisted na okay lang daw at no biggie sa pagtulong niya sakin. Sir James, thank you so much again and God bless every trip

from Wilcon IT Hub to De La Salle College of Saint Benilde

Araw araw gumagaling, Bumabangon para sa kinabukasan. Minsan naiisip ko na bigla na lang tumigil. Ang bahagya ng pagtigil ba ay nangangahulugang ng pag suko? Para sa akin, Hindi. Buhay employed at student at the same time Ay mahirap at ang paggugol ng maraming oras, ang higit sa 16 na oras ay para sa pangarap na tila malayo pa. Tulad ng traffic sa tuwing rush hour na may posibilidad na ma late sa oras ng class. Sa tuwing ako ay nakasakay ma pa Uber black man or pool ay ang aking oras na magmunimuni. Minsan nag Iimagine na balang araw ang paghihirap kong ito ay titila din katulad ng ulan sa tag araw. Titila din ang Isip na napapagod sa kakaisip Lunes hanggang Sabado at sabik na sabik na umuwi at magpahinga sa bahay sa malayo. Titila din ito.

from Metropolitan Hospital to Aranzanso Street

My in-laws who are in their late 60's would usually take a taxi wherever they go. I would always encourage them to take an uber instead since it is more convenient and comfortable. But they said that taking a taxi is much easier and faster to get. Then, one time, they were at a hospital for checkup and had a hard time looking for a taxi going home. So they called me up and asked me if I could get them an uber ride which I did immediately. Since then, everytime they would go to the hospital for their regular checkups or even to other places, they would ask me to book them an uber. They have learned to appreciate uber now. They would just need to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride until they reach their destination.

from Mactan International Airport to Rajah Park Hotel

I was on a business trip to Cebu, my flight was early in the morning at 3:00 AM so I do no have time to get some rest at night as I leave the office late at night (12MN) so I don't really have time to rest. When I arrived at Mactan International Aiport, I contacted Uber, as this is the most convenient way for me to get there in the Hotel. When Kuya driver saw me, he greets me good morning with a smile, carried my things inside the car. I feel like he is my Tatay, like someone of my family na sumusundo sa akin. I was very comfortable with that Uber Driver. After a little chat about the reason why I was in Cebu, I fell asleep inside the car, and suddenly I was wake up by Kuya saying "Ma'am, nandito na po kayo sa Hotel niyo :-).

from 588 Residences, Mandaluyong to PLDT, Makati

When I open the door of the car, I heard the other passenger (Joan) laugh. With courtesy, I just smiled back. When I was already settled inside the car, Joan said, "pareho tayo ng damit". I immediately look at her and my top and answered, "ay! Uu nga noh" then we laugh so hard. I was planning to take a photo of us pero nahiya na ako. What a co-incidence and funny experience. #UberStories

from Sgv II, Ayala Avenue, Makati City to Providence Hospital, Quezon Ave

I was at my work when I received a call from my cousin & was told that Mamang was already trying to be revived by the doctors in the hospital. I hurriedly booked for an Uber ride. Thanks God, the driver came immediately. At the start of the trip, the driver told me that I looked like I was rushing. I was not able to answer the driver because I got another call that our Mamang was already dead. I was crying because of the pain I felt & the feeling that I might not able to see her. I was thinking that she might already be transferred to St. Peter's. But thanks God, I arrived at the hospital at the right time and was able to see her for the last time lying peacefully on the hospital's bed. Thanks Uber for being there at the right time.

from NAIA to Tondo

I accompanied a special person in the airport 2 nights ago,it was an emotional send-off for me since we haven't seen each other for years. Since it was late, i booked an Uber going home. During the trip,I called my best friend and told her what happened.After the phone call, i sighed, then suddenly Sir Uber driver said "ma'am, naiiyak ka na" and i answered "ikaw ba naman sir, after years na hindi pagkikita at paguusap hindi ka ba maiiyak?" "Ganyan din po nangyari sa akin" he said.Then he started sharing his story and I gave him snippets of mine.I appreciated how he respected my silence most of the trip and how he gave a different perspective to the situation. Before getting off he said "darating din ma'am yung para sayo, katulad ng sa akin"

from Gwapotel Jose Abad Santos to Teotimo St. Tandang Sora

My drver was listening to "Papa Jacks" radio station. Nag-comment ako "lahat manloloko". So he reacted "mam, mukhang may hugot kayo dun ha". Then he asked me "mam, gabi na san ba kayo pupunta?" I said "Inaya ako ng kabarkada ko kasi mag-isa lang ako sa bahay galing ako sa break up." He said "mam, hindi naman sa ano ha, pero nung sinundo ko kayo kanina maganda naman kayo eh" Nag-open up ako, the whole ride I was crying. Nag-advice sya kasi kagagaling lang din niya ng break up that he misses his daughter pero choice nya un. Kaya dinaan nalang niya sa pag-uber ung feelings niya. Na after this dapat i-block ko na daw yung bf ko para makamove on na din ako. When I arrived "eto na po kaibigan niyo, wasak na wasak puso" haha.

My parents were separated before I turned 1-yr old. I had no idea what kind of person my father was since I grew up with my mother's family in Batangas. What I only knew was my father's name and his hometown. 22 yrs gone so fast, and I finally found my father's clan through facebook. Until one day, they asked me to go to my father's land, Tacloban. May 5, 5:50 am is my scheduled flight, but I woke up late, had to rush, and book uber luckily, Mr. Rafael Polidario accepted me. I had to ask him to speed up due to my flight sched, and he did. My name was being paged by the airline when I arrived, but God permits me to be on board. You made me see my father for the very 1st time, even though he's 6ft. underground, he was killed 2006.

from Astoria Plaza to Pag asa st. V.mapa

I had my remaining 1000 for this coming week bago pa yung sahod at talagang tinitipid ko to kasi walang wala na ako. Kaso sa sobrang antok ko eh naiwan ko sa sinakyan kong car. Fortunately, ambait ni Kuya at sinauli yung pera ko. Inoofferan ko kahit 150 kasi nakakahiya, pero nung nalaman niya na last 1k ko na lang eh dinagdagan niya pa ng 300. Love you Kuya!

from Patiis San Mateo to Commission on audit

After 1 month and 17 days of breakup nakipagkita ako sa ex ko to pay the money that I owe him. Nagpromise sya na ihahatid ako. Pero that night wala yung car nila so hindi daw niya ako mahahatid. And he said na magbobook nalang siya ng uber for me para daw safe ako makauwi. medyo natagalan ng konti yung uber. nasa isip ko na sana matagal pa dumating yung uber driver para makausap at matingnan ko pa si ex, baka kasi yun narin yung last time na pagkikita namin and yes I still love him. Pagdating ng uber driver nagsorry sya kung natagalan syang nakarating kasi daw nagloloko yung waze. Sa isip ko "Thankyou kuya and thankyou sa naglolokong waze" thankyou rin kasi hinintay nya ako makapasok muna ng gate ng bahay bago siya umalis.

from Citylane Townhouses to Gilmar Place

Every time I ride an uber cab, I always try to talk to my driver, because most of the time, medyo malayo napupuntahan ko. Dead air is unbearable so I try to talk to them. I would ask kung kakalabas lang ba nung driver, kumusta ibang pasahero nakukuha nila at minsan, pag okay usapan, napupunta sa politiko. I would like to thank those uber drivers na hindi ganun ka uptight and try to at least communicate with their passengers. Plus, most drivers would tell me that they respect the privacy of their passengers, and they do not initiate conversations, not unless yung passenger magsimula. Sana rin maging magalang yung ibang passengers. I mean, kadalasan, yung owner ang nagmamaneho, kaya dapat mahiya naman tayo ng kaunti sa sasakyan natin. Thanks!

from Cubao, Quezon City to SM North

Maaga ako nag prep kasi makkipag kita ako sa bestfriend ko sa mall to catch up. The usual routine, dapat pogi at mabango bago lumabas. So I decided na mag uberpool para hindi ako mahassle. Pag dating ng car, sa harap ako umupo. Then later, sa Kamuning biglang may passenger so ininform ako ni kuya. For some reason ang taas ng energy ko at nakkipagkwentuhan pa ako kay kuya driver. Then, habang papalapit na sa pick up point. Sa isip ko *fuuuudge! Wag sya please. Wag!* at syempre dahil mapaglaro ang lintek na tadhana. Sumakay sya........kasama ung pinang cheat nya sakin. Nagkatinginan kami sa rear mirror. Nagulat siya. TADHANA NGA NAMAN, BUTI FRESH AKO. Awkward oo, pero wala ng galit. Masaya na ako e. And please lang, pangit ung pinagpalit sakin

from West Avenue to D. Tuazon

The night before I got my uber, I pulled an all-nighter on studying for an exam and even crying over it (I was failing that subject, and was at a risk of failing it again). Next day, I missed my bus and that made me even more anxious about taking my exam since I thought I was going to be late, so I called an uber ASAP. The uber driver pulled up in front of our gate and greeted me happily as I sat in front. He saw the location of my school and said "diyan dati nag-aaral mga anak ko". It reminded him of the days when he'd bring his own kids to school, he told me how hard his kids studied. They were granted with a full-scholarship and they are now doctors. He wished me good luck and told me he believed in me. I did wonderful in my exam.

from NAIA Terminal 2 to Pasig

I was in NAIA 2 on that time, galing sa Bacolod, problemado ako noon dahil late na ako sa program where I was invited to deliver a inspirational message, late na late na talaga ako, while walking, muntikan pa akong mabangga sa poste noon ng nakita ko ang ads ng Uber, I've tried to download the app then ay nag-book agad ako. Okay case solved, otw na ako. While in transit, nka-kwentuhan ko si uberdriver, sa sobrang sarap ng kwentuhan ay doon ko lang nalaman na siya pala ay isa ring Medical Doctor aspirant tulad ko, napaka-inspiring lang ng ways nya kung papaano sya nag-aaral bilang doktor na 'di hdlang ang kahrapan sa may taong pangarap. Sa sobrang hanga ko ay gnawa ko syang halmbwa sa aking message at hanggang ngayon ay hinahangaan ko sya.

from Harrison plaza, manila to Malabon city

A few minutes into the ride, a song I liked played on the radio and I began to sing. The driver complimented my voice and offered to link his radio to my phone's bluetooth so I could play my songs and sing to my heart's content. And I did! We exchanged stories and I noted that he was still in his school uniform. I learned that he was a working student, driving Uber after school. The ride really lifted my spirits and the driver's perseverance was inspiring. Thank you!

from E. Pantaleon Mandaluyong to VRP Medical Center

I am a single mother it was almost a year when it happened and I couldn't forget it. My then 5 years old son had a very high fever and convulsion. It was 3:45am to be exact. No means of transportation and everybody is sleeping soundly except for me scared of what might come. I booked an Uber ride and texted him that it was an emergency. A few minutes later he arrived, seeing me at my lowest point carrying my son and crying like crazy he immediately step out of the vehicle open the door for me and sped away. On our way he keeps on giving me words of encouragement and when we arrived he opened the door for me again grab wheelchair for my son and accompany me inside to make sure we are settled in. He even gave us bottled water. He was an angel

from North Fairview to McKinley Hill

Got an Uber to work because I was running late. Sir Reynaldo got my request and I patiently waited. He called and asked for directions, he said Waze wasn't working. Waited about 10 minutes after running past me several times until I got in. When I got in the car, he was wearing a funky hat and a smile. He apologized because he said his apps were not working properly. At first I was annoyed, but he looked really old. So instead of getting angry, I asked him what's wrong. Turns out, his phone and apps were all outdated. Fixed his apps and updated his phone and tested it for him. He was so happy he said I was his angel. I was so blessed to have been given the chance to help him.

from Chong Hua Hospital to Sm City Ceby

Galing ako ng hospital, I visited my Dad. Then I needed to go to SM to meet my bf there. Nag hintay ako ng taxi sa labas eh kada may dumadating daming nag aagawan so never talaga ako makaka sakay feel ko so I started opening the uber app. Sa ibang bansa lang kase ako naka try nun. Malay ko sa Pinas meron haha then yun na nga naka sakay na ako sa uber pero pag dating sa destination 1000 lang pera ko, walang change yung driver. I called my bf kung nasan sya para sya mag bayad. Nung nakita nya ako at yung driver he was intrigued. Nung kami nalang dalawa tinanong nya ako kung sino daw yun hahaha nag selos sya ayaw pa maniwala na driver lang yun kase walang taxi naka sulat hahaha

from Quezon City to Pasig City

I booked a ride from my gf's crib he saw her and then he started a conversation asking about her and said I was lucky to have a gorgeous girl. I don't usually talk to the drivers much but this guy just knew what to talk about and he made me feel connected and so we talked about girls joked around and he also gave me some tips in terms of making my girl happy that time. Was really a great talk "yung parang barkada lang ang kausap mo" the trip was long since it was rush hour but since he kept me engaged with the conversation and I was enjoying talking to him,I really didn't notice I was already at the drop off point. The driver made my day it was actually the best trip I had and so I gave him a big tip for making my day even better.Thumbs up

from SLMC-GC to Bonifacio Heights, Taguig

I hopped in an Uber Pool after a devastating news that I'm diagnosed with a type of blood cancer. I completely forgot I was on a ride as I was already crying while talking with my husband, then my parents, on the phone. When I reached home, my Uber driver told me, "I'll be praying for you. Be strong. God bless". It may not mean a lot to some, but it meant the world to me at that moment. He could have just driven away after I alighted, but he didn't. He was my angel in an Uber.

from Sunhing Bldg Mongkong HK to The Charterhouse Wanchai HK

First time in Hongkong,we had a chance to ride a black car(Tesla Model S).Our "tourista feels" in riding the "expensive" car, is to the point we already arrived at the hotel still we are too busy taking photos. One of my friend unknowingly left her bag inside the car.We panic when we notice that it was missing and the car has already left.Sadly we didn't get the chance of getting his number, so I just tried submitting incident to Uber Mgt.This is a serious incident not only it has her money,my ipad it has her passport.In foreign country goodthing it's with uber,the driver is nice,we know we will get it back.In just 30 mins with the help of the hotel staff that instructed us to go to the police to contact our driver.He gave our bag back.TY

from Tera Tower, Quezon City to SM North EDSA, Quezon City

Kumuha ako ng Uber para para puntahan ang isang kaibigan. Dahil nanggaling ako sa trabaho, mababakas sa aking mukha at kilos na pagod at inaantok ako. Dahil may kalayuan ang drop-off point ay nakatulog ako nang may pagkahimbing. 'Sir, andito na po tayo.' Nagulat ako nang bahagya at luminga-linga sa paligid. Bumaba ako sa sasakyan at nagpasalamat kay sa driver. Pero napansin ko na nawawala ang maliit na bag na dala ko. Kinabahan ako at agad tiningnan ang cellphone ko. 10 unread messages mula sa unknown number. Siya pala yung driver ng Uber kanina. Nakita daw niya ang bag ko at magkita na lang daw kami. Mahirap maghanap ng taong mapagkakatiwalaan sa mundong puno ng alinlangan. Ngunit may mga piling tao na puwedeng lagakan ng iyong tiwala.

My most unforgettable moment was riding an uber in Valentines day. At that time, kakagaling ko lang sa heartbreak. And i was really bitter about valentines day. But to keep myself from getting bitter, I ponder myself to love that day by buying a box of goya chocolates. Papasok na ako sa work that morning. Unfortunately, tinanghali ako ng gising. Rush hour na nung time na yun. So, I booked an uberx. I saw many people na nagaabang ng jeep. At that time, Nakita ko crush ko nagaabang ng jeep/fx. Nilakasan ko loob ko and asked him sumabay sya saken. Ayun nagkausap kami about sa work (sympre kilig). Sympre binigyan ko sya ng chocolate (pati si kuyang driver). Nakuha ko name niya after ko sya makasabay sa uber. And friend ko na rin sya sa fb.

from 2 Bronze St. Marikina City to NAIA Terminal 3

My family rode an Uber to get to the airport at NAIA 3 for a 6:00 am Cebu Pacific flight to Cebu. We were picked up around 04:20 from our marikina residence. When we got to Tiendesitas, I realized I left my luggage at home! My daughter-in-law suggested I call my daughter at home to book another Uber for my luggage. I did that and the second Uber driver readily picked up my luggage from my house and delivered it to me at the departure area of Terminal 3 just in time. It took him just 35 minutes from Marikina to NAIA! I didn't miss my flight!!

from 20th ave, Cubao QC to GT Tower International

I tried uberPOOL for the first time. I feel so dizzy but I insisted to go to work. When I booked the ride it said that there's already someone riding too. I said Hi to her. As much as I'd like to talk to her I really feel the dizziness inside my head so I ended up sleeping the whole ride. When we came to my drop off point I gave the driver 1k bill since I was so dizzy to find an exact amount for the fare. I also didn't have the chance to count the change. So I got off the car and went to my office right away then I count the change there. I noticed that the driver was mistakenly gave 100pesos excess of what should be my change. Huhu. I'm very sorry Kuya. I think we're all antok that time. I wish I could give the excess change.

from Countryside Avenue to NAIA Terminal 3

I booked an Uber at 4AM to catch my 6AM flight to Dumaguete City. When I rode the Uber I booked, I was greeted by a smile and courtesy from my Uber driver. "Good morning, Sir! May tubig at candies po sa likod ng front seat. Feel free to get some po." And I nodded with a smile. He asked me if I would be on a vacation. And I answered him that I'll spend a week in Dumaguete and Siquijor. We had a very friendly conversation from then on. I also found out that he's from Dumaguete! What a nice coincidence! He gave me tips on how to spend my week-long vacation hassle-free. He also gave me his personal number in case I have questions about Dumaguete and Siquijor! Thank you, Kuya for the tips and for being an instant tour guide!

20 mins before my client viewing, all in corporate attire but i was not aware i wearing slippers. I was so busy with my phone that i had to rush when i arrived at the drop-ff point. 10mins, i was in the elevator and realized i forgot something. My heels! Goodbye client, Goodby big deal. I was sure i was about to cry that time. I was a new broker and totally messed up everything by simply forgetting to put on my shoes. Suddenly i received a call from an unknown number. UberDriver : "Hello po ma'am, naiwan po ninyo yung sapatos ninyo. Pasensya po hindi ako tumawag agad umikot pa po kasi ako. Nasa labas po ako ng building ninyo kung saan ko kayo binaba". Boom! Thank you so much Kuya UberDriver! All i can say was thank you so much.

from Kabayan Hotel to Resorts World

ASEAN. Holiday so slow to moderate traffic is expected along Edsa. I am about to meet my younger sister in Newport cinema because we are about to watch Kathniel's movie. I am talking to my sister and Mr.Driver minimized the volume of his radio. He heard me sharing stories with my sister about Kathryn and Daniel. After the call He then asked me, "Sir nanonood pa rin po kayo ng ganon?" I blushed and said "Opo, kinikilig pa po ako sa kanila". And then he said "Ako din po, bonding kasi namin yon ng mga anak ko." I was touched by his statement. Not all Fathers share the same story. And for that I admire Sir Edgardo for this gesture. This is not all about Kathniel anymore. It's about a Father's great love to his daughters. He is awesome!

UberPool Mate is sniffling while talking to her boss over the phone and updating her resume all at the same time. Nagresign sya the day before kasi di na daw nya kaya yung pagpaparinig sa kanya ni Edra! ???? I wanted to comfort her so bad but all I could say when she dropped off was "Be strong!" She smiled and said thank you.

from Fernandez, Tondo,Manila to Manila Hotel

Heavy traffic is usual in Manila and I'm late for the debut that I need to attend but kuya made my worries go away with his witty joke. Unfortunately, we saw a Fortuner got bumped by a pick-up truck. Kuya Uber: Ma'am alam niyo po ba ano tawag dyan? Me: ano po? Kuya Uber: Misfortune po ma'am.

from Magnolia Place to Trinoma

Since uberpool was introduced, it had already been part of my Sunday routine, from My QC house to Trinoma to have a meetup with my son who stays in Manila. I used to take a jeep and UV to save on transpo. But safety and convenience is much more my priority now. Plus the short conversation you have with the uber drivers make it feel that you're with someone you know. Thus, making me feel more excited to see my son. Since my son has a busy schedule at the hospital being on his 2nd yr residency, immediately after his duty, he would still make time to meetup with me. Riding the uber is the only time that he can take that much needed sleep. And as we meet at lunchtime until 4pm, those 4 short hrs are the most precious time spent together.

from Berkeley Residences, Katipuna Ave. to Healthy Minds Clinic, Mahusay St., Diliman QC

I had an appointment with a psychiatrist early in the morning so I booked an uber. It was my first time to get help from a psych. my parents had no idea that I was going to get professional help and that has gotten me very worried and skeptical about my plan. My uber driver is lively, in contrast, to what I was feeling then. He checked where I was headed to and asked me why was I going there and I talked to him about my worries and how I was feeling so down, not knowing na he's someone who's active in a church (T'was 2 months ago so I couldn't remember if he was a pastor). I cried when he started playing worship songs and he even prayed over me before I alight the car. I really felt God's presence in that ride. Thank you, my uber angel.

from Road 25, Antipolo City to High Rise Building, Quezon City Hall

My parents had to go to puerto galera with their officemates and sadly no childrens were allowed. My boyfriend and I were supposed to drop my parents by 3am at their office when my mom decided to make use of my über so that we can just sleep instead. "Sir, ingat kayo" was my last request to the designated driver. Right when they got there and as I was tracking their location thru my app, the über driver texted me right away that he was able to drop off my parents safe. He even texted me first than my mom! Such a sweet guy! (I still have the conversation with me)

from Century City Mall, Makati to Escaler St. Sta. Cruz Manila

My uber driver was apparantely a hardworking mother of three kids. She told me her story of how hard it is to work for her children knowing that her husband recently just died. Through the help of uber and her small business, she will soon have a graduate of dentistry. I wanted to cry and hug her, she felt like so motherly to me and she even encouraged me to continue my path into taking up Medicine. Sabi niya nga, "Hindi ganon kadali ang buhay beh, kaya kung kaya mo magaral, gawin mo para narin sa mga magulang mo". Definitely, it was more than just an uber ride. I felt an intimate human connection and amazingly through these platforms, we create inspiring stories.

from Ever gotesco mall commonwealth to 18 kalayan b batasan hills qc

My partner usually goes to our house before she heads home. So as her girlfriend, i want to cook something for her and maybe chill some beer on the fridge to loosen up a stressful day from the office. After buying some ingredients in the grocery, finally I decided to head home using uberpool. I knew I was pooling with someone that time but didnt get the chance to see her name. To my surprise, when the door of the car opened. I was pooling with my partner on our way home! I was really happy to see her even though my surprise chill night didnt turned out the way it was planned it still gave me that kilig feeling to be incidentally pooled with my love! Thanks uber!

from SM Sta.mesa to Wynsum Corporate Plaza

Same day eh I was depressed kasi 2 months na kami ng bf ko na hiwalay kasi I caught him cheating. Pagsakay ko kay Kuya eh nanotice niya na paulit ulit ang buntong hininga ko. Naikwento ko sa kanya nangyari. Sabi niya sa akin eh ang pagmamahal eh nasusukat kung gaano mo kaya magpatawad yung taong minahal mo for the longest time. Sabi niya ang mga nagkakamali daw is weak at since ako yung strong eh ako dapat umintindi. Sabi niya nga siya daw niloko ng wife niya for the nth time pero binalikan niya kasi naniniwala siya na siya yung strong at mahal niya yung asawa niya. Ngayon daw they are livinga happy l. For 2 months na naghiwalay kami dahil kay kuya binalikan ko siya kasi may point si Kuya eh. Kung mahal mo eh babalikan mo at hindi mo iiwan.

from 27 Tampoy to NKTI

It was a rainy Monday afternoon when My cousin called me because her brother was rushed to the ER due to fatal kidney failure. I booked an UberX. Mr. Driver noticed this look on my face. Then he asked if I am okay. I said "No". After 5 minutes he said, "Sir, smile po at samahan niyo ng prayers, kung sino man ang nasa hospital ngayon, magiging okay po siya" Then he played an instrumental classic song. I smiled and say thank you. With this simple gesture, I can say that Angels are not only found in heaven. They can also be found on the streets.

from Tera Tower, Quezon City to Gateway Mall, Quezon City

Nag-UberPool ako para mas mabilis akong makarating sa Gateway Mall para manuod ng sine. Dumating na ang Uber driver at agad akong sumakay. Akala ko ako lang ang sakay pero hindi pala. May susunduin kami sa Eastwood. Babae. Nasa early 20s. Magkatabi kami sa likod ng sasakyan. Medyo tahimik nung una pero nag-usap din kami kalaunan. Medyo mabigat ang traffic nun kaya mas naging matagal ang paguusap namin. Nagkapalagayan kami ng looba. Nagkaroon kami ng kumpiyansa sa isa't-isa. Nagkwento na rin siya about sa naging break-up nila ng boyfriend niya. Dumating na kami sa Gateway Mall at nagulat na Gateway Mall din pala ang drop-off point niya. Yes! Nakaabot ako sa last full show ng sine! And yes, kasama ko siyang nanood and the rest was history!

from MVS Apartment, Cainta to BTTC Centre, Ortigas Ext

That night my partner and I decided to end our relationship, its a mutual understanding but I still need to go to work to earn money because I have bills to especially that ill be alone. My driver started maybe noticed that I am crying then he started talking to me. He asked me if Im okay, obviously im not. He shared his own struggles before and he said that no matter what i am going through right now my life should go on that i should not stop living. He said that God is just one pray away and God is always ready to listen anytime I am ready to share. In addition he said that God will never separate us for no reason. Im like wow. I didnt share anything, can you read minds? So there he dropped me off and he shouted "Sir, just pray & smile!"

from 121 a. mabini st tuazon las piñas to sm bf

Nung nagbook ako papasok sa work. Usually reaction ng driver is tignan ako mula pagsakay hanggang makasakay from the rear view mirror maya't maya. Habang nsa byahe, nagkwento si kuya about his long exp with uber. Akala daw nia artista ako kasi lagi sya nakakakuha ng pasahero na artista like sila anne curtis and vice pero never daw nia tinignan sa salamin dahil daw ginagalang nia ang privacy ng pasahero. tinuruan pa nia ako na ireport sa uber pag may mga ganung situation lalo pag hindi na daw kumportable. Nakakatuwa kasi alam mong concern sya sa safety ko at comfortability. It was last yr pa. I cant find his name kasi regular cx ako.i hope i could share his name para makilala sya na may ganun pang driver. Napakamagalang. mabuhay si kuya ????

from Glorietta 5 to Grainsmart Rice Dealer Mandaluyong

It was a very stressful day at the office, a usual Manic Monday. All I wanna do after my shift is to ride uber going home and take a rest. When I arrived I immediately took a snack and watched my favorite show only to find out couple of hours later that my purse containing my newly obtained iPhone 7, credit card and some cash is missing. When I tried to contact the driver, he confirmed that it was in his car however he's already too far away from my drop off location. I thought he didn't have plan to return it. But he, without hesitations, agreed to meet after he drop off his passenger and didn't ask for anything in return. I feel so lucky. I pray for the driver to be more blessed because he is so kind and honest. Kudos!

Daniel Legaspi, a former businessman turned Uber driver is professional, good conversationalist and a friend to every riders. I want to comment his dedication to his work and his genuine care to riders. I've shared to him how my life is going on with my partner and he listened to me as if he's my father. He gave me advices based on his life experiences and I appreciate every single word he uttered. I must say he has a good heart because he didn't judge the person based on the bad things I've said about my partner. He weighed things just right and that made me feel better. Sir Daniel, if you'd be able to read this, thank you for the gift of kindness.

from Eastwood Libis to Sta Mesa Manila

Summer 2016, I left the office, it was my last day at work. My contract was not renewed due to cost reduction. I was depressed so scared for the future of my family. I booked UberX on my way home. Car arrived quickly. Inside the car kuya started talking, I responded with few words, I was not in the mood for conversation at that time. Out of nothing he just asked if I have a car, I said yes. He asked if I like to be an uber driver partner, he said he would refer and help me with the application, I was interested. The whole trip we talked about Uber and earning as a partner. I immediately signed up to be an Uber partner. Upon activation I started driving immediately. Upto now Im a loyal Uber partner earning well for my family.

from Landbank Fort Bonifacio to SM Aura Premier

After my grandfather and I deposited money from the bank, I booked an Uber, after booking, I noticed that our driver looked depressed or tired. So after minutes of observing him, my instincts tell me that my driver was tired. When we reached our destination, I grabbed my fee worth 100 pesos instead of 89 pesos believing that I can cheer him up and spoke to him "Kuya, sayo nalang tong 100" and in shock he replied "Talaga Sir?" then I said "Opo kuya, sigurado ako" he smiled energetically and said Salamat and waved us goodbye, there I remembered a motto entitled "Every cloud has a silver lining"

from Cainta to NAIA

It was already 12am, I booked Uber as I was in a rush from Cainta to NAIA in order to catch my flight going to Surigao in time for my Lola's burial. I thought of bringing my book and read before second sem starts. Little did I know that I left my book in the car. The uber driver called me and informed me that he has my book and will hand it to me as soon as I get back. Sigh of relief! Di ko maimagine kung nawala yung book na yun, how will I cope sa review.. may mga notes na ako dun eh! Now, I already got my Bachelor of Laws Degree. Looking back, kuya Jovic has been part of my law school life and couldn't thank him enough!

from Merry homes II subdivision, zabarte nova caloocan to Philippine heart center

I Need to rush my husband to the ER at the Phil heart center sat morning 4/29/17. He felt dizzy &might collapse anytime. As you know my husband had a heart attack 3 yrs ago & undergone a quadruple bypass last Nov 2017. I told the driver to make it faster coz he's seem not ok. Our driver went on hazzard and chase the traffic on our direction(zabarte road traffic then fairview traffic) We arrived the hosp right away and ruled out that my husband's bp went high to 160/110. Want to thank our driver kuya Regalado Atienza for treating us like family with care and concern. If not with him baka kung ano na ang nagyari sa husband ko. Mabuhay ka po kuya! God bless and will continue to trust and support uber.

from Theater Mall Greenhills to Starbucks The Grove

I was having a big fight with my partner whom I supposed to meet at the Grove. I was so upset to the point of crying but I realized I am pooling with others and I don't want to weird them out so I tried to enjoy the good music the driver was playing and held out my emotions. I was also hoping for the other passenger to be drop off first as I really need the ride to calm myself. Yes sometimes it's more than just a ride.

from Edison Road, Parañaque City to San Antonio, Makati

On a Friday, my friends and I wanted to let the usual heavy traffic pass by. "Two bots lang" became 3, 4, 5+1, a bucket, & more than I can handle. At 1am, we decided to head home. I booked Uber and when I stepped in, my head was buzzing and spinning. I was sweating profusely. The driver must've noticed and turned up the AC. A few more minutes, I asked him to stop at the emergency bay in Osmeña highway. I wasn't very sure how long I was throwing up just outside the car but I just remembered that when I looked up a police enforcer was already checking on us. I got really scared and decided to keep my composure. The driver vouched for me & back in the car, assured to bring me home but couldnt help saying "naparami yata inom mo, Ma'am"????

from Shakey's Lourdes to Ampere Place Makati

It was my birthday week. 2 days after my birthday, my workmates and I decided to have dinner outside. Since it's already late, I decided to use Uberpool. Before riding the car, my friends greeted me again and bid goodbye. Upon riding the car, the driver said "Birthday mo pala Sir, Happy birthday!" To which I replied, "ah 2 days ago pa kuya!". To my surprise, the driver told me "sige sagot ko na tong ride mo sir" I declined to have my ride free of charge since It's already past my birthday. He insisted saying that if In case I had a uberpool match, that ride will be free of charge. And yes it did happen. He has been the coolest driver I had a ride, sharing stories and even introduced me to the other rider. A simple yet memorable gift for me.

from Divine Mercy to Greenhills Shopping Center

Uberpool mate and I don the same bag--brand, model and color. I broke the ice by stating the obvious; she smiled and said she was about to say the same thing. Just when I thought our small talk was over, she added that we were both heading to the same destination. What a happy coincidence!

from Philplans Corporate Center to Genesis Bus Terminal

Our team has finally decided to have our team building at Bataan and it was my very first travel with them. Since our shift ends at 7 AM of Thursday, we had expected a rush hour war! So we decided to use the convenience of using an Uber drive plus the relaxation of an AC during the travel (Climate change has turned 7AM into a noon feeling). As we arrived our destination, I left my girlfriend's iPod charger while picking our fare from my bag. I've never noticed it until I had been pretty sitting on our bus seat. Suddenly an unknown number ringed my phone, since I'm not really expecting a call, I disregarded it, finally he jumped on the bus and personally gave me the charger! It was indeed an extra mile for Kuya Gerardo. ❤

from University Pad Residences to Jomar-J Trading, Pasolo, Valenzuela City

I used UberPOOL for the first time to go home. I skipped breakfast and haven't eaten lunch yet, so I asked the driver to pass by a drive thru. The other rider said it's fine with him. Driver even said that it's late for a breakfast and that it's a bad habit (touching! Thanks for the concern, kuya). I was actually really hungry and we're taking an unusual route, at least to me. But after several stoplights, a co-rider drop off, and road congestions, we finally saw a McDo drive thru. The driver and I both ordered for a snack. And I got this very familiar feeling of passing by a drive thru with my family or friends. Kuya is very cool with that and kept me in company during the ride. A very light and nice experience for my first UberPOOL ride!

from Diliman to East Fairview

It was already kinda late, went outside our school and i saw the traffic along commonwealth. We were shooting our clips that day for our film fest. My body's tired; i wanted to go home. I thought of riding a jeepney but i have a lot of equipments to bring (my camera bag, tripod and my school bag). I also thought of riding a cab home, but with that kind of traffic? Uhm no thanks. So i decided to ride uber pool instead. Arrived to my destination safetly; but when i was already inside my house guess what i forgot? My black camera bag, where all of our videos are stored. My dad's gonna kill me, as well as my classmates. I called kuya if he can bring my camera bag back, and after a few minutes i received my camera bag safetly. LIFESAVER!

from Arugaan to Ramax Barangay Pasong Tamo QC

Many thanks to Robin my driver tonight!!!!! He went all the way back to our home just to give back the bag that contains breastmilk for my baby!!!!! Breastmilk is very important to my child's health and he did not throw it away!!! When he arrived at our home he was wet due to the rain because he patiently waited outside until somebody opened the door!!!!! I cannot go and meet him because I had to attend to my baby so I hope that the Uber community recognized this driver!!!!! Please give him an incentive for this please. Breastmilk is very important for my baby and he returned it!!!

from Guadalupe, MRT to Venice Piazza, Mckinley Hill Taguig

Last Valentine's day, my mom attempted to suprise me here at my workplace in Venice Piazza. She didn't realize how bad the traffic was that day. She left 6pm in hopes of reaching Taguig at 8pm but she got lost because she is not familiar with public transport. She then gave me a call for assistance while I was inside the office. The massive traffic during that day made it difficult to reach me in time, also, the mall closes at exactly 11pm. Uber saved the day because I was able to book her a ride remotely while I was at work and she was lost in traffic. The uber driver was Nathan Solpico, he was very friendly and assured my mom that the Valentine's day won't be put to waste. Thank you Uber!

from Vito Cruz, Taft to Alabang

This happened around 2:30am on the way home from Taft. As usual since it's past 12nn I booked myself an uber. The ride went smoothly & the driver I got was quiet compared to the other drivers I've gotten. When we reach the drop-off, I paid, gave thanks & hurridly went out of the car not knowing I left my laptop. I realized I left it when I was about to go inside the house, I noticed how light my things were. I texted and even called my driver. He picked up the call & told me he'll come back. I also texted my friends. I called my uber driver again & this time the call could not be reached, I got scared nearly tearing. I kept calling & still cannot be reached. A few minutes later he called to tell me he was outside. I felt so relieved ????

from Mckinley Hill to Kalayaan, Makati

I have a really sad week that time, my mom passed away and I have to work after her burial. After work, i booked for a ride. This Uber driver was so accomodating. He started to talk to me and we shared a lot of inspiring experiences in life. Until we spoke about my mom. He was touch by our family's story and we started to pray for each other. This was the safest ride and the most comfy ride that I've experienced. I was so blessed that time that I have a friend to talk to. God bless you more kuya! God bless Uber more.

from San Roque Church to Arlington

It was my father's funeral service and it turned out several of my relatives need a ride going to Arlington in QC after the mass service in Mandaluyong. I could have driven our family car to accomodate them but decided to get uber black instead. It was a good decision as I was able to peacefully remember my dad and I saw a glimpse my mother's collected demeanor before she said her goodbyes to her partner in life during that 20 minutes ride. Our driver turned off his Waze and followed the route of the hearse. It was very considerate of him and thanked him deeply before we parted. If i had driven, my focus will be making it on time, traffic, directions and road regulations instead of having that moment with family. Thank you uber!

from Bonifacio global city to Katipunan avenue

I was heavily intoxicated one night and had to take an uber home alone. On the way home i was still conscious but halfway through the ride i passed out. The driver was kind enough to let me sleep and recover. He woke me up as soon as we got to my destination. Since i was completely unaware i opt for payment thru cash was not able to pay the amount and went down right away. He was again kind enough to let me pay the next day he went out of his way to come back for the payment. He even messaged me to take care of myself next time. I was brought home safe thanks to uber.

from Las Pinas City to Las Pinas

My daughter is a minor, doesnt know how to use the public transpo and can't even cross the street. She usually been picked up by a school bus. Apparently, every time she has to go home at 8PM to attend her football practice (she's a varsity player) the school bus will no longer cover for that. I am glad that there's Uber now, very reliable (than the bus actually), very trustworthy and so convenient for my daughter. Uber picks her up right from the entrance of the school and cost is cheaper compared in riding a trike back home. As a mom, peace of mind is very important and Uber met that expectation. Thank you Uber! :)

from Pasig to Bgc

As a relatively new mom who is struggling with breastfeeding my little one, i heavily rely on my breast pump kit as i go through my office work and often times forget my breastpump at home. I have no choice but to book an uber to pick up and deliver my pump at the office. At the end of the day, i can still provide milk for my little one thanks to Uber!

from Binondo to Sun residences

I was 7 months pregnant last Aug. 2016,rode an uber from Lucky Chinatown Binondo,it started to rain really hard..An hour later the streets were flooded,the uber driver didnt show a sign of resignation or remorse that he took me in though he knew the rains would bring in flooding.another hour later,there was smoke coming from the front of the car and we got stranded in a gas station.thru it all,my uber driver was ever assuring and i felt at ease with him.we encountered a total 5 hours traffic jam and i wasnt able to attend the event i should have gone to,but the driver made sure i was able to go home safe and sound.I was glad i rode an uber that night.

Yung bang ayos lang kasi isipin mo na lang na busy din yung tao na nagtatrabaho lalo na as driver. Na hindi lang naman ikaw ang pwedeng maging pasahero niya. Actually, that time okay lang talaga sakin na hindi na maibalik yung payong ko at twenty pesos. Kaya naman nagulat ako at natouched sa ginawa ni Kuya John, yung Uber driver na nasakyan ko. ☺ He's really a good person. Hindi lang dahil nag abala pa siyang ibalik sakin ang payong at sukli kong 20 pesos, kundi lalong higit dahil sa mga naikwento niya sakin sa buong byahe namin na sadyang nakakainspired. ☺ By the way, shoutout po kay Kuyang John! Hello po! ???? God bless you po always. ????

from 8-10 Kapwa St,Marikina Metro Manila to 75 A.Bonifacio Manila Metro Manila

I am working at BGC Taguig while my wife and 1 year old daughter are at home in Marikina. April 12,2017 Got a message from my wife that it's her nephew's birthday and she would like to bring our daughter along to celebrate. As much as i want to allow her,i am not comfortable on letting her get ride in public or a taxi with my baby girl. My work finishes at 5pm and the party will start at 3pm,to cut it short we will not make it if they will wait for me. Good thing there is Uber! i told my wife that i will book them a ride on my phone and then i will just pick them up when i am done working. I was able to monitor the car's location on the way to their destination. They made it on time.Thanks uber for keeping my family safe!

from Bookman Building, Banawe St. to Ali-mall cubao

I haven't seen my grade school classmate from abroad since they came back to the Philippines. We saw each other once again about six years ago, and it was during a funeral of a very close friend. Years later, we would only keep in touch via Facebook and IG liking each other's posts and wondering how each other was doing. Who would've thought that in all places, we would see each other in an UberPool! Turns out, she lives near my area. She is one of the few classmates I have that lives in the East part of Manila, and it was amazing that of all places, we got to be together in an Uber ride!

from SM Hypermarket Pasig to SM Megamall

My daughters and I hurriedly alighted the vehicle upon arrival in the mall because I was late for my work event... A few minutes after, an unknown number sent me a message saying that my daughter's fone was left in the car. My 12 year old was not even aware that she had left her phone in the uber ride we took. As a mom, I tried to keep my cool - instead of scolding my daughter, I told her straight that this is beyond our control. Having thought that perhaps she will never have her almost new rose gold iphone 5S ever again. The driver then told me that he is still in BGC and he is not certain as to what time he can bring back. I was almost sure we will never have the phone back. But after 3 hours - it was personally returned to us.

Rommel my rider, God fearing a sick father, bread winnerand a very ,hard worker a dialysis patient who has a very hard time to make ends meet .Decided not to get his fare as a small help with his daily struggle in life a motto any uber partner should posses service to those who is in need not just your daily earnings

from Greenwoods Executive Village, Pasig to NAIA Terminal 4

Me, my dad and 3 cousins are going to NAIA terminal 4 for our Palawan trip when we were conversing in ilokano, our uber driver suddenly asked us where are we going in the same dialect. We're all even from the same town, Baguio City. My dad was so surprised he had too much fun talking with our uber driver until we reached NAIA. While checking in, in the counter, my dad's car key is nowhere to be found. I emailed uber and was able to reach our driver. Our uber driver confirmed that the key is with him. After 4 days in Palawan, kuya Damerey even picked up my dad in the airport and dropped him off at home safe and sound. 5 stars to kuya Damerey!

from Bellevue Hotel Alabang to Home, Crowne Bay Tower, Roxas Blvd, Baclaran

sumakay ako ng uber from a makeup gig in Alabang, apparently the driver was a newbie. Medyo matanda na si kuya, then nag abiso na sya na pasensya na kasi bago lang daw sya. So I said, kuya lipat ako diyan sa passenger seat, tuturuan kita. Taught him how to use waze, and his uber app. He was very very happy. He apologized coz it was his first ever trip kaya nangangapa pa. And I said, don't worry, alam ko after this magaling ka na and there's always a first time for everything. He was very thankful because he was nervous that I'd be so mad at him for kinda not knowing what to do. Masaya ako kasi, sabi ni tatang natulungan ko sya, hinding hindi daw nya ito makakalimutan.

from mayflower St. Mandaluyong City to Escalades South Metro, Muntinlupa City

From a trip to break up. Kung San ako nag book yun yung last time na nag give up na kami sa isat isa. Quite fast ang mga pangyayari. Masaya pa kami from an escapade until that time. Umuwi ako by uber. Habang nasa byahe, I can't contain my feelings lalo na yung pag on ng driver ng radio. Ikaw by Yeng Constantino and Secret love song played. Grabe iyak and hagulgol ko backseat from Shaw to Sucat. Nang nakarating na sa bahay. Driver told me na "Okay lang yan sir". That words gave me a smile. I thanked him not just for driving me safely home but also for saying that everything will be alright. Dami ng breakups na nangyari pero that experience with uber was one of a kind. Thank you Uber for the comfort. ????????

from Sun Residences to Naia terminal 2

I asked the driver to charge my phone and forgot to get it before leaving. Thanks to a very nice uber driver, I was able to get my phone back. Good thing I have a spare phone, I was about to board my flight when the driver was able yo contact me and told me he went back 2x but could not see me. He then just returned my phone to my relative since I am now out of the country. Thanks to the uber rep who assisted me in tracing the driver as well.

from Mactan Cebu International Airport to St. Peter Memorial Chapel Imus Cebu City

I am originally from Cebu, I haven't been home for over a year. Last March 3rd I went home with a heavy heart as my very dear brother died. I boarded my Uber which arrived on time at the airport, the driver politely greeted me with a good morning, as I was not in the mood I just nodded. He then started my trip and noticed my destination. I saw him looked at me through his rearview mirror and I looked away as I don't want to engage in a conversation as my tears are ready to fall. When we are near my destination, he said " Mam, duol na ta", I just smiled with tears in my eyes. He said " Condolence mam, sorry for your loss. Death is not the end but the beginning". I just smiled and said thank you. To Carlo, thank you for a safe ride.

from Antipolo City to Vermont Park Village

Nakakatuwa lang isipin na bilang isang matulungin na bata, ako ay tumodo sa pag asikaso sa aking Two Lola riders. Gently, Slowly until we started the trip. And to my surprise I think they should be called TechyLolas. Lola A: Ano ba inaalala mo dyan pasakayin mo nalang apo mo ng uber! Lola B: Hay nako hindi marunong mag activate ng GPS yun, ang baba pa ng processor ng Phone niya 1GB lang ata kaya malamang puro glitch lang kakalabasan nun kapag nag download sa kahit anong play store. Lola A: o edi kahit waze nalang, kaya naman na siguro yun ng 1GB na RAM. Lola B: 3.5inch lang ata screen nun, di ba nakakaduling naman kapag ganun? Lola A: hay, laki nga ng problema mo. kung bakit pa kasi kita natanung-tanong.

from Technohub Portal to Bernal St.

Had a bad night at home and I'm trying to hold back my tears of pain since I'll have to work. I keep myself busy at work to forget. On my way home riding an UBER car, I've noticed kuya's playing worship songs. Just when my emotions are building up again, the song God Will Make A Way is playing. Then I realized, God must have used kuya to make me feel and know that everything's gonna be fine. Because of that I've had my much needed cry. Yes, inside the car. Not sure if he noticed but he's busy driving. Anyways, thank you kuya for playing those songs. It uplifts my spirits. Thank you. God bless.

from Manila to UP Dil

Kampante si Mommy My son had to be in school at 6am for his ROTC. Daddy is out-of-town and can't drive him to Diliman. I decided to book an UBER coz it's safer than regular cab. Before they drove-off, nagbilin ako kay Mr. Driver to take good care of my bunso. When they got to school, the driver even called me up to inform me "Ma'am, andito na po si bunso nyo. Safe po kami nakarating."

from mrt taft to andrews ave

I'm on my way to the office,one jeep ride away from MRT station when I realized that I left my wallet at home. I'm almost late and I dont know what to do. Will I beg for money? Will I do the 1,2,3 or just take trike and ask for money at the office? Thank God I have uber. for only 49 pesos uber pool, I was able to arrive at the office on time without borrowing or begging for money. Thanks for the credit card option, and thanks to uber!! ☺️

from SM City Cebu to JPark Waterpark Lapu-lapu

I have a two-year crush on some guy. And recently, we just started talking and exchanging messages via social media. One night, as I was preparing for a job interview he told me he has a job interview as well the next day. We then both realized we're going for the same thing. So we decided to meet up the day after to head there together. Uber was my first choice because of its affordable service. Getting there took an hour and a half so while inside, we both talked and got to know each other more personally. We never had a chance to date ever but that day turned out into a pretty amazing mini-date before going home. I didn't get the job though, but he did. Each of our dreams came true. Mine, a day with him and him, the job!

from Alexandra Condominium to Medical City Pasig

Just got home from picking up my son, & my vehicle was overheating. While unloading my sons stuff, my brother had to be rushed to the hospital. Fearing the car would stall in the thick 6pm rush hour traffic, plus the inability to use the AC to make it a comfortable ride for my bro, I decided to use Uber. Fortunately, my sister booked a ride even before I arrived, and by the time I was about to leave, the vehicle arrived to rush my brother to the hospital. He had an overdose of sugar in his blood stream and had a mild stroke as a consequence. He spent a week in the ICU, and now he is recovering with all sorts of therapy. Uber saved the day for everyone. To add, I used uber to pick up my son for 3 months while my car was being repaired.

from BMW Drive to St. Vincent Hospital

In 2004, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy and got cured. She began to be health-conscious back then. However, after 12 years, surprisingly, her sickness which we have considered as a nightmare came back. We thought that she only had asthma attacks but we did not know that it was CANCER again. Struggling to accept it but yet our family chose to fight and trust God. She had a very difficult time breathing because of the water in her lungs. It was really heart-aching to see her gasping. It was such a hard time for our family but thank God for UBER because even if we do not have a car, our mom had an easier time going back-and-forth to the hospital during her last days. Now, she is in heaven with God. :)

from Kamias to St. Luke's Medical Center QC

Took Uber at 2:30am & told the driver to drive as fast as he could. W/o asking any questions he turned on the hazard, drove so fast yet carefully, & we got there in 5mins. Turned out I was already fully dilated and about to give birth.

from Navotas to Caloocan city hall

Nov 7,2016 the start of our forever. It was just a simple civil wedding that my partner and I wanted. We prefer an intimate wedding ceremony with our love ones. We dont have enough money to rent a car for our guests or even for own rides so, we just booked an uber taxi to get us to the municipal. I couldn't hide my uneasiness on our way to the wedding venue because we were 30 minutes late and our guests keep calling us to asked where we were but the uber taxi driver safed the day. He found the easiest way to get us to the venue. He even entertain us with his funny experience being an uber taxi driver. We got there within 20 mins. Even though we were late, we still made it with his help. The funniest part is he didnt let us pay our ride and

from Robinsons Galleria to Napico Pasig

After an hour getting home from the mall, i realized my phone is missing and when i couldn't find it, i contacted uber about my lost item. I knew it wont be back asap but i didn't lose hope. The next day, the driver brought my phone back to our house! My husband was so surprised because we didnt even arranged a meeting on our convenient time with the driver. He sent it back by himself! When i went home after work, i was so excited to see not my phone, but the memories: pictures & videos of my baby since birth that are saved in my phone! It was like a flashback moment. I almost cry! I can't thank the driver enough! He said the phone got stuck in the backseat & he's thankful it was not found by other passengers after us. Thank you so much ????

from Maginhawa St. to Rockwell

I'm a singe-mom who had a fair share of life experiences already but until now couldn't find the right guy. Just this year I had been dating a single-dad for 2 months. We had a happy and super 'kilig' moments then but things changed when we had a simple misunderstanding that lead to end of dating and courtship. I booked Uber to Makati for a meeting on the first day of cold moments with the guy. Mr. Uber driver greeted me nicely, with a happy smile, when I entered his car. His stereo was playing sad songs, I couldn't help myself but shed tears. He noticed my sadness and said, 'Are you alright Ma'am? Everything will be okay po.' His empathy made me accept and realize that the guy wasn't for me. Simple words but a big help!

from Novaliches to Naia terminal 1

Our uber story was very sad. Nung nag booked kse ako paalis na ko ng bansa e. Tas sa uber hindi ko alam kung iiyak ako o matatawa kase nilalapang ni jerro ung pisnge ko para mag amoy laway ako pag dating sa airport. Pinipilit nya manalo sa thumb wrestling para d nako umalis. Ako naman nag papatalo pero we both know na its not possible. D ko alam kung matutulog ako sa byahe or titigan ko ung mahal ko sa tabi ko na alam ko matagal bago ko makita at makasama ulit. Pasakay plng kme ng uber pero ung kapatid ko grabe na hagulgol sa gate. Ung uber story ko masakit pero it gave me a chace to start a new life at mas magandang kinabukasan. Uber man ang nag hatid sakin sa airport pero sya din isa sa dahilan kung bkt manager na ko ng National Support.

from Mars to Guadalupe

Nag Break kami ng 6 years live in partner ko. The day i learned na may 3rd party nag decide siyang umalis na ng bahay. And i said hindi ko kayang makitang umalis siya ng bahay. So i decided na umalis muna while nag iimpake siya. I booked for a ticket flying to singapore. While waiting for my turn. i opened cctv app to see whats update sa bahay. I saw my partner, leaving the house with all stuffs. Hinahatid siya palabas ni papa and mama pasakay sa UBER na binook niya. Salamat sa Uber kasi kahit hindi ko siya maihatid using my car kung saan man siya lumipat. I feel safe pa rin siya kasi naka UBER siya. Taga Roxas Capiz siya, kaya di siya sanay dito sa Manila. Salamat Uber.

from Shangrila Ortigas to Quezon City

I booked an uber to deliver supplies for a project. As usual, my driver was polite and upbeat inspite of the rush hour traffic. I even apologized, not realizing the traffic would be so bad, but he assured me it was no problem. He lived near to the destination, and I was his last ride for the day. After arriving, he waited with me until everything was received, and even helped unload the items. In a fatherly tone, he asked how I was getting home. He warned me it might be unsafe to ride a taxi at this time since no ubers are readily available in the area. Right there, he offered to do overtime to drive me back home. It’s small things like the thoughtfulness towards the passengers journey that make me grateful to the kindness of uber.

from Net Park BGC to Ariana LAundry Services

Me and my partner were both young entrepreneur. We both work and manage our businesses(Uber, Tapsilogan and Self Service Laundromat). Sometimes, she's also a part time driver. For a business minded person, Uber is a perfect partner. It help us move from place to place with convenience. I'm thankful that Uber helped us earn enough to venture for more businesses. It's also a great feeling to be part of this community that aims to deliver better commuting experience.

from Caloocan City to CMEC Post Office Pasay

I am an online seller. I have packages to ship to other countries that sometimes gets more than 20 kg per package. From Caloocan City to CMEC Post Office in Pasay, I need a lift from my house. Calling to taxi companies, no taxi driver wants to accept me. I am very happy that Uber is created. Uber saves me! And the drivers are very much willing to help me carry the packages! Without Uber, I literally do not know how to bring my packages to CMEC!

from Sm Fairview to St. Francis Street Barracks II Tala Caloocan

Me and my husband together with my 2 kids are going home from SM. We booked a ride on Uber. The uber driver kuya Adrian took the usual route which is the main road. Unfortunately when we were in Fatima Lagro we got stucked up in traffic. We waited for around 15mins but were still not moving. Its because theres a road construction ahead. Good thing kuya Adrian knew a different route avoiding the heavy traffic infront of us. Because of that we arrived at home in just half an hour or so. We thanked kuya Adrian, paid him and he drove off. At home me and my husband is browsing our social media account. That is when we saw most of our friends posting that they got stucked up in traffic for 1-2 hours. Because of Uber my family got home in no time.

from Gt Towers Ayala to Robinson Galleria

Really appreciated how my uber driver returned my phone personally in my office which I accidentally left at the back seat. He just finished dropping off a passenger in Tondo and went straight to my office in Ortigas after informing me that I have left it in the car. He even offered me a service ride home as a form of consulation for possibly giving me an inconvenience for not calling me much earlier before I left the car. I failed to rate him 5 star since I did booked another car during noon, though Uber did it for me already. I'm guessing that if i rode an ordinary cab, my phone might be lost forever. Thank you uber.

from Astoria Plaza to Grand Monaco La Impreza

I took an Uber ride coming from an event with so many bags and my baby in tow. Along the trip, I saw the driver eat a pack of biscuits and asked him if he had lunch yet. He told me he had so many passengers, he hasn't had a chance to eat yet. When we reached our house, I told him to wait a while because I'll give him something. I went inside to pack him food I brought home from the event. Later on, I realized I left my phone in the car. Thankfully I was able to borrow a phone and talk to the next passenger who got my phone. She told me that the driver told her how I gave him food when he's really hungry and she thinks it's a really kind gesture. We kept in touch until the next day when I got my phone from her. Kindness do beget kindness.

from R. Valenzuela to Technological Institute of the Philippines Quezon City

I'm not a morning person. I always hated morning class. But you know what's worse than a morning class? Have your major subject departmental exam scheduled early in the morning. I was lucky enough to book Tito Richard that fast since I was in a hurry. I told him I need to arrive at school in an hour. He promised that I can still take my exam and he'll do everything to speed up our travel time. Surprisingly, we arrived in less than an hour. I know I'm still late but without Tito Richard, I won't be able to make it. I even gave him a tip but he refused to accept it and said "Wag na Hijo, ipangkaen mo nalang yan." And that really touched me. He was like a father to his passengers, as he always get students as his riders. I really won't forget him.

from biñan laguna to pasig ortigas

Was about to go to work when a heavy rain just poured. Sobrang na stress ako kc Monday and baka ma late kami ng asawa ko. First time to use Uber just to try my luck hoping na may susundo at maghahatid sa amin from home to office. Well lucky me, may driver pumickup sa amin and was able to go to work ng hindi late. While inside the car medyo natatakot ako kasi baka kung san lang kami dalhin, pero kinausap ako ni kuya at nag good morning sya. D kami na late and we are both safe.Super Thanks Uber, worth it yung first time ko. :)

from Village East Executive Homes to V.T Maternity

Nagcocontractions na pala ako at manganganak na ako nun. Dinedeny ko pa sabi ko "hindi, next week pa siguro baka kabag lang o ano". So tiniis ko lang yung sakit. Nung bandang 3am hindi ko na kinaya. Nag try ako mag book pero wala ako mahanap na car. Nagpapanic nako tapos pinapawisan ng malamig tapos magigive up na sana ako, inaccept ko na baka sa sala nalang ako manganak tapos biglang may nabook! Pagsakay sa car ok naman magdrive si kuya pero kada daan sa hump o liko nagwawild yung sakit sa puson ko so sabi ko "kuya, manganganak nako steady ka lang please" tapos ayun nagpanic siya kasi di ata niya alam so hinazard niya yung car at binilisan pero ingat sa turns at humps. Ayun, dahil sakanya umabot kami sa hospital and healthy baby ko yay!

from St johns biocare quezon ave to 1114 stanford st cubao

It was good friday of this year. I booked uber going home from my dialysis session. Being new on dialysis, i still feel lethargic after each 4 hour session. Kuya Uber was very helpful upon seeing that i am on a wheelchair. He opened the door, helped my carer walk me to his car and he also folded the wheelchair to be placed at the back. Upon reaching the destination, instead of getting our fare, kuya alighted from the car to get my wheelchair and help me get on to it. When my carer gave him our fare he said "huwag na po. Pandagdag na lang ninyo pambili ng gamot." i was so touched! It isnt easy on the budget to be on dialysis and this man gave me a free ride. God bless his kindness. I will never forget such a good samaritan.

from Kubling Tago Resort, Cupang, Antipolo, Rizal to La Colina Resort

April 15, 2017. Apat kami ng mga kabigan kong gustong mag swimming dahil sa init ng panahon, pangatlong resort na yung pagpunta namin sa Lacolina resort dahil fully booked na lahat. Pagbaba namin ng Uber, nagtataka kami kung bakit hindi pa sya umaalis, almost 3 min na, and then nilapitan namin sya kung bakit, alam nya pala na hindi na naman kami makakapasok ng resort dahil fully booked din, kaya tinanong nya kami na kung gusto namin na mag swimming sa Pansol, Laguna, toll gate na lang daw at gas ang sagutin namin dahil alam nyang hindi na kami makahanap pa ng resort na pagsiswimmingan. Then we accepted his suggestion, and then we proceed. Nug nandun na kami sa Pansol Laguna, hindi na sya nagpabayad ng gas. toll gate lang, sinagot nya food.

from C4 Navotas City to Trinoma

My husband passed away last May 2016 due to heart attack. I drive my own car but when I feel very sad and miss my husband, I go out alone and ride uber. I don't want my family to know when I feel lost and hopeless missing my husband so I find time for myself, book uber ride and share to the driver my story to ease the pain, I even cry to the driver coz I find it hard to open up to my friends and family coz naaawa sila. It's easier to open up to someone stranger than someone you know kasi they'll just listen. Since I ride from navotas to trinoma, the time is enough for me to share my story, cry and share the pain and after that Im super ok na. Just want to thank all the uber drivers who listens and cry with me. God bless

from NAIA Terminal 3 to General Ojeda St. Bloominghills Subdv Taytay Rizal

I was 5mo.s pregnant when my husband flew to Saudi. He said he had to so he can provide us a better life. Life without him is the hardest. Giving birth alone and raising my son without him could be the toughest part of my life. This Mar9th, after 2 years he came back. Wala kaming sasakyan, my sister&his bestfriend had to cancel their commitment that they will drive us to the airport for job priorities which we totally understand..gusto ko sana less hassle at kumportable yung byahe niya pauwi ng bahay.thank God may Uber.Habang pauwi kami, i had a chance to show him my surprise, since it was 7pm and the car's lights were off, my son's glow in the dark t-shirts message appeared to him, WELCOME HOME DADDY, I'VE WAITED MY WHOLE LIFE TO MEET YOU.

from Harrison Plaza Manila to Harrison plaza manila

Due to an emergency at work, I ended up having to cram one week's worth of tasks into one day. That afternoon, I had to pick up an important document in Makati, then return to office immediately. I booked an uber ride. A few minutes into the trip, the driver asked if I was ok. I burst into tears right there and then! I relayed to the driver I was just really tired and under pressure. He offered to wait for me while I picked up the documents so I wouldn't have to book another ride. I will never forget his kindness on that day.

from Terra tower QC to Cardinal Santos ER

I was at work when I got a call from the school nurse that my 9 year old son was hit on the eye by his classmate. I dropped everything and got an uber. I was on the phone with the nurse that's why my driver heard what had happened. I was crying when my driver said,"Ma'am, magiging ok po ang lahat." He said he was a father and knew exactly how I felt. He found the fastest route to get me to my son. When I alighted the car, he wished me and my son well. I ran to the ER and when my son saw me he hugged me tightly. He was so scared and hurt. Thank you uber for taking me to my son quickly when he needed me most.

from Manila Med to Trinoma

I'm a resident physician by profession and I only get at most one Sunday off a month. Since We usually work beyond 24 hours in the hospital, I ride an Uber because it's only one of the few moments I get some rest in this fast-paced life. I meet her at Trinoma to have lunch and coffee together after an hour of precious sleep on an Uber after my duties. I thank Uber for giving me that moment of rest and the opportunities you give to meet my family on one of the few offs we get. This is a shout out to all the doctors out there who only get rest on the road, or in my case, on an Uber ride.

We have a devotional prayer that I need to attend everyday 5am. It was already 4:40AM and I am still in Gateway Cubao. Our church is in Iglesia Ni Cristo, JP Rizal Marikina. I booked an UberX. Super bilis ni kuya nahalata nya yata na nagmamadali ako. Unfortunately, maling drop off loc ang binasa ni system. Kaya lugi sya sa fare. So sabi ko mag email nalang for adjustments pero he refuses instead sabi ni kuya important is makaabot ako sa pupuntahan ko. Nakaabot ako 4:56AM 4 minutes bago ang panata namin. I was teary eyed cause this panata is very important to me and dahil kay kuya nakahabol ako. I texted him and thanked him endlessly. Sabi nya no problem maam. May God bless him.

from Ortigas Park Walkway, San Antonio, Pasig, Kalakhang Maynila, Philippines to 13 Coral Way, Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines

This is how the Lord used my FIRST UBER ride in meeting my FIRST and hopefully my last GIRLFRIEND Due to the heavy rain and terrible rush hour traffic that Friday night, I installed UBER and booked for an UBERPOOL for the first time. As the last person to be picked up, I didn't know what to expect so I sat at the back of the car beside her; Bored and awkward of the traffic and silence, I said my first hello and introduced myself to her which became a beautiful conversation about life and our faith, and my first UBER ride then led into a series of UBER dates. And last March 5, she finally said answered YES inside UBER. As UBER has been our unexpected matchmaker, I’ve decided to celebrate our first monthsary over a simple surprise UBER ride.

from Marikina to Up Technohub

I got caught in the rain so I booked an Uber ride. When I got inside the car, I was so wet. I was wearing a sheer white top that time, the driver gave me his jacket to cover myself up. Hats off to gentlemanhood! Chivalry is not dead.

from Antipolo to BGC, Taguig

My Lola is fond of visiting her sister, who lives in Quezon City. Since we don't want her flagging a cab alone, we usually do it for her. We would ride a tricycle to the highway outside our village and hail a cab. It takes some time because cab drivers usually ask for additional tip on top of the metered fare and we would spend time haggling. But now it is much easier for her. All she does now is tell me, "I-book mo na ako ng Yu-ber." Level up!

from Parañaque to Quezon city

Naglilipat kami ng gamit from parañaque to qc, but sadly the truck wasn't enough. At first dapat ride lang, but when kuya driver arrived it was a mini van which I politely asked him if we can load some of our stuff inside the mini van. What was left is our bike, some plastics with clothes and even a drawer. He said why not as long as it fits. Imagine, suddenly naging part si kuya ng pag lipat bahay namin. And he was too polite and so kind to us. I wish all the other drivers out there is like him. Because uber drivers are the best for me. All my rides are awesome and not a single ride passed that didn't make me happy

from Resorts World Manila to Aseana 2

My officemate & I decided to meet our former officemate at Aseana 2 so I just type Aseana 2 & set the pin to whatever the map showed. So my officemate & I were doing our usual discussion about anything & the Driver knew everything about us in just 1 ride haha! We both stopped talking when I saw the Driver's Waze already reached its destination according to the pin I set in the map. But when I looked outside, we're in the middle between Solaire and nothing! We couldn't change the destination as we lost data network. Before I could ask any favor from the Driver, he told as that no matter what it takes he must drop us off safely to our destination. If only I could give 5 billion stars to him at that time. Another safe trip with Uber!

from Makati to NAIA Terminal 4

Late nagising. As usual. Kabadong kabado ako nung nakita ko na may 2 hours nalang ako bago yung flight ko. Takot pa naman akong maiwanan ng eroplano kasi alam ko na pag nalaman ng tatay ko yun, mapapagalitan nanaman ako. Habang nagbibihis ako, nagbobook narin ako ng masasakyan. Salamat nalang talaga at may nag accept agad na driver. Salamat narin talaga at kahit papaano, konti lang traffic papuntang airport. Yung normally na 1 oras na biyahe, nagawan pa ni kuya driver ng paraan. 30 min lang nasa airport na kami. Life savior talaga kayo. So THANK YOU ng sobra!

from Marigold kimberly pavilion to Rizal Medical Center

I was at iloilo airport when papa had a stroke. As soon as I got back in manila, i dropped by the house and went straight to the hospital. On the way to the hospital, my uber driver asked me a couple of questions about my visit at the hospital and I gave short answers. I didn't really wanna talk because I was in a panic. And i guess he noticed it. So he just asked me to pick a couple of notes inside this jar and then was silent the rest of the trip. I picked two and they were inspirational messages and bible quotes. When he dropped me off, he wished my dad well. My dad died after that night. But in a weird way the quotes helped me coz I took it as a sign. I wasn't able to thank him properly. Thanks for noticing! I still have the notes. :)

from BGC high street to Resort's world manila

I'm a 34 year old man who just had his 1st born child, a baby girl. While in the Uberpool I booked, I was thinking if I'll be a good father. We stopped to pick up the next passenger, it was a mid-twenties girl who's a painter, clutching her artwork which she'll deliver somewhere. En route to my drop off, the girl asked me "Have you experienced quarter life crisis?" I answered "yes I have.". She then tells me about how all her friends are moving up and she wants to abandon her current choice of profession. I told her "Life is like riding a car, sometimes it takes longer but if you stay the course you'll eventually arrive at your destination." On my way out, she thanks me with biggest smile I have ever seen. I felt confident after that.

from The Parkside Villas, Pasay to Makati Medical Center, Makati

It was 6 am in the morning that I felt some cramps in my belly, wasn't sure if it were contractions (It's one week before my due date and it's my first time having a baby.). I woke up my hubby and told him about it. "Baka April fools lang yan" we laughed but said we should go to the hospital just to be sure. It was 7:00 am by the time we were ready to go and forgot we were coding so we took an Uber. Before leaving I wanted to have a preggy photo taken. "Kuya pa picture muna." In the car my husband was timing the contractions and the driver was kinda anxious while looking at us from the rear view mirror. I was doing breathing exercises when we finally arrived at the hospital. I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl that afternoon.

from San Juan to SM Aura

Everyday I go to work on an Uber, my daughter always comes see me off and she'd frequently ask me.. what's the color of your Uber daddy? (i can never tell since it doesn't say in the app before) so we always make a bet, if i got it wrong she gets "pasalubong".. Now, since the update, I can tell what color my Uber is going to be, and I still get it wrong..

from SM Aura Office Tower to Taguig

It was a long day at work and everything was falling apart then I saw you. You asked me how my day was and I told you it went badly, you made me feel better by simply asking, 'cause no one did.

from Robinsons Galleria to St Lukes Global City

I was resigned to the idea that it was a regular Christmas-season Sunday. I went to church with my daughter when my friend messaged me to meet her and her daughter at Galleria. Having nothing much to do, I obliged and we met them up. While eating at the veranda of Banapple and while the kids were happily playing, I knew it was time. I immediately booked an uber. With anxiety increasing given what I was experiencing, I stood up and stayed at the curb to wait. And then it broke. My water bag broke. It sure was time. It was crazy. There were even carolers around with mouths wide open seeing my water splash down. 
Good thing kuya uber was able to quickly pick us up. He even tried to assure us all by saying that there's no traffic

from kingsville to makati

from Century Mall to NAIA Terminal 3

I live alone and away from my family. I was out for brunch when i received a phone call from Bacolod to go home immediately because my dad had a major heart attack and the next 48 hours was crucial. I booked a 1 way ticket, and requested for an Uber to bring me to the airport. It was comforting knowing im getting closer to coming home. 48 hours after that call, my dad died. When i went back here alone, i booked an uber again from the airport. Home is where my dad is, Bacolod or Manila.

from Cyberpod Three to Clarion School

Eto na nga nagUber pool ako and i was pooling with Ron. His trip was just short from Eton Centris to MRT station sound bound. While inside the car he explained the reason for taking the Pool. He had a surgery and could barely walk. Dropped him off near the station and asked to pay Php39.00. Yung pera niya Php100.00, then kuya asked if merong siyang barya. The manong driver was calm and pleasant. Inulet niya pa ulet yung tanong baka may barya since maliit lang yung fare, Ron answered kung meron ibibigay ko. To Rons defense mukhang d naman siya galit. Then sabi ni Kuya okay na po sir wag na po kayo magbayad, "LITERAL NA NILIBRE NI MANONG SI PASSENGER". Okay na yun maysakit naman siya. Then sumabog yung puso ko sa galak.Kudos Mang Julio.

from SM Aura to Makati

Kakagaling lng nmn from team bldg. There was this teammate who offered na sabay na kame umuwi since malapit lang naman ang house nya sken. Nagtatalo pa kame, bus or mag book kame ng uber. Uber won. On our way home, tahimik lng kme. D mapakali kamay ko at kamay nya. When we reached the drop off location (my house), Inalalayan nya ako sa pagbaba, so nahawakan nya kamay ko. 1st time na nahawakan nya kamay ko. Saw him smiling while saying our goodbyes. Nung nagusap ulit kame, he asked "kung hinawakan ko kamay mo nung nasa uber tyo, anong gagawin mo?" my reply was, "di ako bibitaw". And then as they say, the rest is history. ❤????

from Tandang Sora QC to BIR Village

I just arrived yesterday. It's my first time here in the city. I have never been to Metro Manila eversince. A typical "promdi" from Northern Samar. Im 30 yrs old and a teacher already.(hahaha imagine?) I installed your app just today. To help me get into place I wanna go. I want Uber to be with me as I take my first step into this big city! Today. I'll start my journey.

from Philamlife Tower to Amarillo Makati

I'm writing this not just to give credit to the driver but also to share to everyone why I preferred UBER. Okay, as I am doing my study at office, I usually go home late. For security reason, lagi na ako nag UUber. But that night, I had to book UberPool due to surge. I was already sleepy but unfortunately may kasabay ako at ang Destination niya is sa Mckinley so it took us an hour just to drop her off. Then, on our way nakatulog na pala ako. Buti nalang may #Waze at Mabait si Kuya Driver. Nakakahiya lang na ginising nalang ako ni Kuya Driver nung nasa tapat na kami ng apartment ko ????????. Sa Uber, #safe kaming riders ????????

from Balintawak to Crame, Cubao

Hi, I booked an uber going to the office this morning, I sit beside the driver and along the way, I'm busy on my phone. When we approach Quezon Ave flyover the driver said: "naku delikado tong motor" pertaining to the motorcycle in front. When I looked at it, the motorcycle is still on the side stand. The driver then honks the car horn to get the attention of the motorcycle driver and I roll down the window and shouted on the motorcycle "kuya, stand mo" the motorcycle driver replied "thank you" It's a small act of kindness that can save the life of other. Made my day even if I'm late going to work :)

from Roosevelt College Lamuan to Microsourcing 1880 building, Eastwood

It was the night earthquake hits Metro Manila, April of 2017. I'm in a hurry on my way to work because of the quake so I immediately booked a trip from Uber. That was a carpool trip and the moment the driver told me that there will be another passenger, I became anxious because I really need to pass all the buildings and get there before 10pm but I saw the name of the passenger pop-up on my phone screen. It says Tyrone, the name of my crush in the office. I asked the driver if where will be his drop off, he told me that it's in the same drop off. I got nervous because I know we have the same schedule w/c is 10pm. I'm already thinking what am I gonna do at the back of my mind. Am I gonna take a photo w/ him as a proof and show it to my colleagues? Am I gonna say hi? Etc.. But the moment I saw that guy, I'm a bit disappointed because it wasn't him. The thing is, before that happened? I already sent a group message to my team about that. Instead of talking about the eathquake, I was literally telling stories a lot about my situation. When I got to the office, all of my colleagues are waiting about my story then I told them that it wasn't that guy. I was being bullied that time because of my high hopes and believing about destiny. Hahahaha! I really can't imagine how I look that night. I'm sweating all through out and my heart is pounding. If it was happened? I will never forget Uber. Hahaha! I love you guys!

from Greenbelt 3 Makati to BF Homes Paranauqe

So I took an Uber the other night to go home from Greenbelt and I was surprised by one of the coolest Uber rides. The traffic on SLEX was ridiculous but kuya driver made my experience an unforgetable one. He brings out a microphone, attaches it to his dashboard radio, and turns on a legitimate karaoke! He presses the play button and starts to sing "Pare Ko" by the Eraserheads and since i'm a karaoke guy, I sang along too. He gave me the mic and I took over. Grabe! Best Uber experience of my life.

from SM Megamall to One Gateway Place

It was the 5th date, kinda like a dealbreaker for me. We were in Megamall, then it was time to go. Both of us booked an UberPOOL. We then realized we were pooling TOGETHER (thank gosh cause my phone ran out of batt). During the ride going to my place (me first), we got a bit cozier. He then whispered "I think I love you" and I froze. The whole ride to my place was me pretending to sleep and trying to hide my kilig. Once I got home, I couldn't stop smiling. And now, he's my boyfriend and we LOVE taking Uber when he can't drive. Thanks to UberPOOL for my first I love you!

from Trinoma to Tandang Sora

My Uber driver with the unique name of Sardius picked me up at Trinoma and we started the drive with the usual small talk. Then there was a sudden lull in conversation as we got stuck in light traffic. Then I heard the name "Sardius" mentioned by a DJ of a radio station and it caught my attention. What were the chances of encountering that name in one day, right? I think he saw I got surprised and told me "Ma'am, pakinggan nyo!" My driver had me greeted over the radio! I thought that was really cool!

from Resorts World Manila to Makati

My Uber app said I was pooling with “Kimmy,” a lovely Korean lady who greeted me with her surprisingly beautifully cadenced Filipino and a pixie smile when I got on the car. Cut short, it was love at first sight: a chance of a lifetime was coming my way, but, really, what could I say? Given all the time we were marooned in traffic (not to mention an ample alone time we had all to ourselves when—intentionally or unintentionally—our driver pulled into a gas station to have a washroom break), it turns out it was easier to look away, to pretend not to notice Kimmy as she grinned and stole glances in the dark, probably because she knew I was groping for words, probably because she wanted to talk, too. I have always believed that there’s nothing strange about strangers at all; what’s rather strange is how we let strangers we meet walk away as the same strangers that they had been. Then again, I reached my stop still with nary a word to say, and, as I was about to alight, Kimmy offered to step out so that I could exit onto the right side of the road. Whether it was something to it or just a friendly gesture, all I knew was that, this time having a clear view of her smiling face, I was in love, her mental picture promising to get stuck in my head now that she’s gone. I wish I had known beyond her name. I wish she understood how hard it is to be a man. I wish that, maybe, just maybe, she felt how equally hard it was on her part as a woman that I kept her waiting.

from Lola Cafe + Bar, Tomas Morato, Q. C. to Conrad Hotel, Pasay

It was my first time to travel this distance alone. That day, it was my favorite HS teacher's surprise birthday party (whom I have not seen in more than 5 years), and it was also my sister's 18th birthday party. Left with no choice, I had to attend to both events. I braved commuting from QC to Pasay, and good thing there was Uber that made me feel safe. Thanks to Kuya Alexander John (uber driver) for the great conversation and obviously, for dropping me off safely!

from KFC Roces to Megamall

Kuya Uber Driver: Mam, ganda po ng pangalan niyo noh. "Grace". Grace din kasi pangalan ng asawa ko eh. Me: Buti Kuya, nagkatuluyan kayo. Kasi po yung huli kong nasakyan, pangalan ng ex niya, Grace din. HAHAHA. "Grace" - pwedeng lesson, pwedeng pang forever.

from Legaspi Towers 300 Roxas Blvd Cor P. Ocampo, Manila to Builders Center Building, Salcedo St., Legazpi Village, Makati

Heartwarming #uber story of the day: as I boarded, my Uber driver turned to me, and immediately his face seemed familiar. But he beat me to the punch and said, "You're Atty. Raymond and you used to live in the apartment on Eduque St. Makati." Surprised, I asked him how he knew me. He replied that he was the building utility guy who had damaged my car as he moved it inside the crowded parking basement. "You were so kind to me, sir, I never forgot that. I learned how to drive by moving cars around that basement, and now I support my wife and children driving for Uber!" I had stayed in that apartment building for only five months in 1996, yet my simple kindness was recalled 21 years later! Andy and I continued to chat about our lives, and he seemed particularly pleased I told him about John and me. "You must hate Pacquiao!" he said. "Ha ha, yes," I replied, recalling his "masahol pa sa hayop" idiocy against LGBT people. Andy said he thought that my partner was lucky to have such as a kind partner as me, which of course flattered me. At the end of the half-hour ride, we said we'd keep in touch via Facebook, and we wished God's blessings upon each other. Unforgettable Uber experience! Lesson of the day: Be kind. Always. ❤️

from McDonalds, Katipunan to Kaimito, Pasig

When riding, I almost always make it a point to talk to our drivers. Ask them things like; how long have they been in Uber, what their previous jobs were, what their favorite experiences with their riders were, etc. I just want them to be able to tell their stories even for a short ride, but one night, tables turned. I was the one pouring my heart out, the one sharing a story. I shared things about myself, my parents and my troubles at home because of my desire for independence. I had this overwhelming feeling of relief because I got to rant and hear advise from someone regarding my troubles. Then, I got dropped off. After a few minutes the driver called asking if the comb he found in the car belonged to me. I said no and after a split second he asked if my parents' names were Jack and Jill (not real names), I was lost for words and become nervous because how could he have known them and how come I didn't recognize him? Turns out, the person I have been ranting to about my troubles was actually my uncle! I became so shy because I was sharing personal troubles mainly involving my parents and he knew them. I wasn't able to stop laughing nervously. He eventually gave me his word that whatever we have talked about won't reach my parents *sigh of relief*

from manila to valenzuela

matagal tagal n din since hindi ko sya nakita. masyado ako g naging focus s work. gigising,kakain,maguuber,work,uber,home . for a very long time I stood up on my own thinking n kakayanin ko eversince nawala ako s kanya. pero minsan iniisip ko kumusta n kaya sya. namimiss nya kaya ako. Until one day sumakay ako ng uber at ung driver ay kausap ang nanay nya. he said "I love nay, uuwi ako agad" , tumulo lang luha ko when I got home, nagmadali akong nag impake ng damit good for one week. I booked an uber going to valenzuela, where my mom was waiting since "naglayas" ako. When I saw her all I just said was "I am sorry ma and I miss you" it was mothers day and uber was there when I have finally reconciled with my mom. Now I am still using Uber but this time not for me to leave my home but for me to pick my mom up and spend the lost time I could have had from previous years...

from Trade and Financial Tower to Philippine Army Gym

I once rode an uberPOOL from my office to a nearby gym where I swam. I was sitting in the front seat. When kuya driver saw na may makakasabay akong girl, he played matchmaker and tried to set me up with her. Pinalipat pa ako sa backseat to "get to know her more" daw. It was an awkward but funny experience. Kung alam lang ni kuya na di kami talo ni sis. ;)

from Blue Leaf Pavilion to Samar Street, Makati

Pauwi ako from a company event nang masama loob because I was robbed of an award. I had to get home early too kasi I had an operation the next day. So nag-Uber Pool ako and pagpasok ko Indian girl kasabay ko. At first I was annoyed kasi I really do not like Indians but we got to talk about work and cultures. She shared na she was off to church to pray at nakuwento ko din na I have a surgery tomorrow. She then told me nung pababa na siya na she will pray for me na maging success procedure ko tom and yes, it was! Since then I learned not to judge or generalize people kasi some have a heart of gold regardless of nationality

from Makati to SM Aura

It was my driver's first time to ride. On the way to my destination, we missed a street 2 times. I was really planning to send an email to Uber Help. At that time, I still didn't know he was knew. Then when I was about to go down, he looked me eye to eye and politely said "Ms, sorry sa shortcomings ko today ha. First time ko po kasi gumamit ng Uber and Waze". Awwww!

from Concepcion Dos, Marikina City to Batasan, Quezon City

It was barely a month since my dad passed away. I booked an Uber to work and my driver was a young man in his early 30s. My Uber driver noticed I was very quiet and asked if I was feeling all right. I told him that my father just died and for some reason, I started talking about him, how he died, how he was such a great dad and how I feel this excruciating pain now that he was gone. My Uber driver then told me that his father also passed away recently due to a terminal illness and he related how he loved him so much, that his father was his best friend and how he took care of him before he died. We both agreed in unison how it was so hard and painful losing a parent, how we have to come to terms with their absence. Before we knew it, we were both crying, tears flowing profusely down our cheeks. The guard at my workplace must be baffled by our tear-stained faces. In that short 30-minute ride, I shared my grief with my Uber driver and the shared sympathy was just what I needed to ease some my unbearable pain.

from Palanan, Makati to 7th avenue, BGC

Our conversation started when I asked him if he owns the car or not. It was nice knowning such driver that are very hard working, specially young once. He told me that he has a lot of siblings and he was just helping his mom financially. He stopped studying due to financial issues. He was a construction worker before he started Uber(as far as I remember). I was amazed that he was earning more than what I earned. I really appreaciate and acknowleged such young individuals who are working hard just to make a living just to help their families. It also surprise me that he was younger than me. He was really an inspiration to every youth out there. He was just amazing! I hope he will be very successful someday. ???? I salute you Mr Driver!!

from SBGV Quezon City to MRT Quezon Avenue Station

It was early dawn, I booked Uber to drop me at MRT Q. Ave where my shuttle to airport will pick me up. I rushed to the shuttle when we reached Q. Ave Station. Only when I was at the airport I realized that I left my second phone at the back seat. I called the Uber driver but he didn't pick up. 30 mins after he gave me a call and told me that the phone is with him and will return it to where he picked me up. It was a relief. Thank you kuya. :-)

from Jupiter Street to British School Manila

It was my first time to try UberPool because I've been so iffy about carpooling with strangers. I was on my way to BSM to play touch football after work so it was dark by that time. I noticed I was pooling with a guy named Karl and just hoped and prayed he wouldn't be creepy. As I was getting into the Uber, my uberpoolmate was already in the car but I couldn't see his face. I suddenly hear a "...Bianca...?" I was so surprised that it took me a few moments to rack my brains of how many Karl's I knew until I realized it was Karl, my seatmate in HS over 10 years ago!!! We hadn't seen each other since HS so we spent the entire ride catching up! I've never hesitated getting an UberPool since then!

from Poblacion Makati to EDSA Shangri La

I was bringing a box of toasted siopao in the car, and I shared one siopao to Kuya Driver. He got very emotional and told me that he hasn't eaten dinner yet, and that the siopao I gave him was already more than enough. He mentioned that I was the first Uber Customer who gave him food and insisted that I no longer pay for the fare.

from Makati to Shangri-La Fort Manila

I always take an Uber to get to meetings. But this is one story I'll never forget. I booked an Uber one day to get to a meeting. I didn't really see the picture or the name of the Uber driver on my phone since I was too busy texting my clients. But as soon as I rode the Uber, I was surprised to see my childhood driver for 15 years now owning his own Uber business. It was so interesting because it felt like old times. And i haven't even seen him after almost 10 years. Practically a reunion. After dropping me off, he told me to just let him know if I needed a ride. He'll be there!

from Uptown Mall BGC to Makati

I booked an Uber one night after work. As soon as I got an Uber, i noticed the driver was a woman in her late 30s. She kept calling because she didn't know the area. 20 minutes later, she arrived because she drove around not knowing where to go. When i got in, she told me she did not know where my drop off point was and if I could lead the way the whole time. Despite being tired from work, I was okay with helping her with directions. And i found out something amazing. She was a single mom who was trying to earn money to send her kids to school. By day, she's a callcenter agent and by night she's an Uber driver who barely gets any sleep. This story made me realize how much effort people really go through to support the ones they love. I salute you UberMom. I hope everyone out there appreciates what these Uber drivers do for all of us.

from Cityland Chino Roces to Greenhills Manila

The other day I rode an Uber on my way to a meeting in Greenhills. I was very busy during the whole ride because I had to talk to my client on the way. As soon as we got to the drop off point, i paid 200 pesos and rushed out. Well, at least i thought it was 200 pesos. I rushed out right away and made my way to the coffee shop to meet with the client. Someone suddenly tapped my shoulder and to my surprise, it was the Uber driver. He said I accidentally gave him 500 pesos. I was shocked that there are still many honest drivers out there. Thank you kuya for returning my 500 pesos. You are Uber amazing!

from BGC to Katipunan Ave. Quezon City

I was stressed from work that ended at 12mn. All I wanted was a good night sleep and rest so I rode an Uber and apparently the driver noticed how tired and stressed I was. His phone rang and he talked to his girlfriend or fiance while I was minding my own business. The driver suddenly asked me and said, "Ma'am, pagod ka?" I said "Okay lang kuya". He then tells me his fiance told him to take care of me going home because it's really late. That was really sweet of her. Totally made my night.

from Greenbelt 3 to Sergent Esguerra

Im waiting for my uber pool with my friend then nakita yung thumbnail photo ng ka-pool ko at napasigaw ako na, "uy cute yung ka-pool ko oh!" Tapos dinefend at dinescribe ko pa sya further sa kaibigan ko. Pagdating ng uber, may kasabay akong pumasok sa car... little did I know, katabi ko lang pala yung ka-pool ko all the while na pinaguusapan namin siya. It was an awkward ride home. Sayang, hindi ko nakuha name nya though :(

from Market! Market! to Cypress Towers

My friends and I are having our internship here in Manila for the whole summer (we're from Bacolod btw) on our way to our condo from Market Market we were having a conversation in our dialect (hiligaynon) kuya uber on the other hand heard our conversation and politely asked if taga Iloilo kami. Although Iloilo is near lang we explained to him na taga Bacolod kami and he was familiar naman. All throughout our ride we shared stories about the food in Negros like the famous Piaya of Bong Bongs which kuya uber loved so much hinahanap niya dito sa Manila and wala siyang makita katulad ng Bong Bongs. It made us miss our home but it was nice to share stories with other people.

Bakit sinasabi ng Uber drivers "Start trip na po?" pero sa end ng trip di nila sinasabing "Ma'am/Sir, your trip... is now Uber."

from Pasay to Makati

I'm an introvert. I don't really like starting conversations. But last week, something interesting happened. I got an uberPOOL to get to Makati from my house in Pasay. We picked up one guy from this place near Yakal street. Then picked up another at Circuit Makati. On the way to my drop-off point, the ride was dead silent. Until this driver wanted to spice things up. He turned on the radio and started singing. Until I found myself singing along with the other two. After that, we had a good laugh, introduced ourselves to each other, and surprisingly my introvert self disappeard. All because of that driver, I met new friends. Thanks Kuya Jeffrey!

from BF Homes Paranaque to Torre Lorenzo Taft

It was Sunday night and I had to commute back to my condominium in taft. I live in the south. My brother couldn't bring me home so I decided to take an Uber. As soon as I booked, a funny thing happened. I checked where the driver currently was and noticed he had to complete another trip. Funny thing was, the destination of that other passenger was my neighbor! As in literally right next my house. But wait, there's more! When I looked closely at the driver, he was my friend from college! What an interesting night in this small world.

from Pasig to Marikina

I was on my way home from school the other day. And I literally did not have any money on me. I called my friend and told her that I was starving and can't wait to get home. A few minutes later, the driver stopped over some sidewalk and went down. When I turned too look what he was doing, he bought fishballs. He probably got hungry from all my ranting. The driver got back in the car and to my surprise, he bought fishballs for me and not just for him. He doesn't even know me and he's treating me food! Sana all my friends are like this hahahaha!

from Pasig to Taguig

One time was, I really had a bad day at work like I was questioning if I should still work in my current company then it was late at night na on Friday tapos super traffic. Then this uber driver was the jolliest ever when I entered. It so happened na he used to work for the same company. He kept talking about his memories when he worked there. And from his stories, he was so proud that he got to work for them and that I'm really lucky - not a lot of people can get in the company. So I should appreciate being there. When I went down, I felt better. He doesn't even know me and what happened to me but when I left his car, I was smiling and grateful for being in the company even if I had the crappiest day :))

from Makati to BGC

So I was riding an Uber the other day on the way to work. I was too sleepy to operate or do anything. All i wanted to do was sleep in car. Until suddenly this Uber driver turns on his spotify and plays 90s boy band music. Funny thing was, he memorized every song!!! I couldn't help myself but laugh! What a way to start the morning
