Yet, with less an emphasis on product news and more talk about what Uber is doing to change (and better) itself going forward, the real objective of the morning show interview was clearly meant to reassure shareholders and customers that it has a stable leader at the wheel of company. "Uber paved the way for a new paradigm in urban mobility, and we're tremendously excited to power seamless connectivity between Uber's options and public transit, reducing the number of cars on the road and enabling more on-demand transportation".
Last year Uber highlighted various improvement features for the driver.
Flare will offer first aid training to Uber drivers, the MP-Shah Hospital will provide regular free check-ups, whilst drivers can receive free eye check-ups from Essilor.
Uber will host the businesses at its Greenlight Hub, a Nairobi-based resource centre that provides technical support to drivers using the app.

The move is a part of a greater effort to offer vehicle ownership alternatives and expand Uber's transportation options.
The proposal would increase the tax on rides originating from the District for companies such as Uber and Lyft from 1 percent to 4.75 percent. "Autonomous at maturity will be safer".
Uber is as well partnering with Washington and SharedStreets for compiling and analyzing data of curb usage in the city.
The ride hailing company, which said on Wednesday it will add new services, including car-sharing and train tickets, is looking to be virtually a one-stop transportation shopping app.
While this much is going for Uber, Khosrowshahi said at an event sponsored by Goldman Sachs: "I want to run the bus systems for a city". A range of vehicle types will be available for users, and cars can be rented for as short as an hour or for days. This could allow users to book public transit trips within the Uber app.
Uber announced it would be participating in Shared Streets, an effort by the National Association of City Transportation Officials that lets cities get a better grasp of how their streets and curb spaces are being used by taxis, ridesharing companies and transit. The ride-hailing company must also retain certain records from its bug bounty programs regarding vulnerabilities and unauthorized access to consumer data.
