I love Uber more than anything in the world and at this difficult moment in my personal life I have accepted the investors request to step aside so that Uber can go back to building rather than be distracted with another fight.

TechCrunch .

“Travis has always put Uber first. This is a bold decision and a sign of his devotion and love for Uber.

We look forward to continuing to serve with him on the board.”
