Uber, headquartered in San Francisco, is best know for its transportation service. Users with smartphones can submit a request for a ride using the Uber app. The application notifies the nearest Uber driver, who then comes to pick up the passenger. The app calculates the fee and automatically transfers the payment to the driver.
More recently, Uber has expanded its services to include meal and beer delivery in some markets. Uber is in 518 cities around the world.
