How Uber Designs for the Future of Transportation

Uber started as a simple idea: “push a button, get a ride.” The goal is making the technology invisible, but delivery a magical experience that gets you from here to there. Today, Uber is a transportation network spanning more than 450 cities in over 70 countries.
