East River Park’s Uber Greenlight Hub
A New Home Base for Drivers in the District
East River Park and Ward 7 are proud to be the home of the latest Uber Greenlight Hub, a state-of-the-art support and resource center for local Uber drivers. This central hub will provide invaluable support for drivers in the District, who previously had to travel as far as Forestville, MD, to receive in-person support. The 8,200 square foot facility has been thoughtfully designed to best serve the needs of District Uber drivers, as well as reflect the local community.
Join us for the grand opening this summer as we celebrate the new hub, as well as the thousands of Uber drivers who call the District home and serve the Ward 7 community.
