“Uber has transformed the way consumers think about transportation by providing more options in what had been a relatively stagnant market. We are delighted that Uber has partnered with ID.me in order to recognize our nation’s military and veterans, first responders, and students with a special discount,” said ID.me CEO and co-founder, Blake Hall.

Uber is one of the fastest growing companies of all time.
