Flex is the voice of the app-based economy, representing America’s app-based rideshare and delivery platforms and the people who count on them.
Our members—DoorDash, Grubhub, HopSkipDrive, Instacart, Lyft, Shipt, and Uber— efficiently provide crucial goods and services to customers reliably, offer flexible earnings opportunities to workers, and support economic growth in communities across the country.
We advocate for policies that enable our industry to deliver for the people and communities who count on our platforms. We believe in creating more opportunities for people to live, work, and run their businesses on their own terms.
