Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is going all in on the ride-hailing company’s growth in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Kalanicks statement came hours after Uber issued a statement saying it has been cooperating with authorities in Boston and New York.
“The Uber team is dedicated to bringing people safely and securely to work and everywhere else in the world,” Kalanakis statement said.
“We are committed to doing everything in our power to make this a success.”
Kalanack said he wants to “be an angel” for Uber and is willing to donate to charity.
“As an Uber CEO, I want to do everything in my power to help the victims and families of the tragedy in Boston, and to help rebuild the community and restore order and calm in our city,” Kalaniks statement said, according to Reuters.
Kalaniakis comments came days after he called the bombings “a direct attack on Uber and all our customers and partners,” according to the Boston Globe.
Uber has faced criticism in recent months after the company’s app was used to help coordinate the Boston bombing.
The company said at the time it was investigating whether its app was hacked.
Uber had previously faced scrutiny over the app, which was recently pulled from the app store.
Uber is currently under investigation in the United Kingdom over its handling of the deadly London Bridge terrorist attack last year, according the Times of London.
Kalanocks latest comments come a day after the Boston-based company announced that it has begun offering its drivers the option to choose between a $1,000 or $500 bonus for each trip, in order to reduce pressure on its workforce.
Uber CEO Kalanacs latest statement came after he made the controversial comments about the Boston bombings during a question-and-answer session with CNBC’s John Harwood.
Kalanykas company is currently undergoing an internal review after an internal investigation found that the company was “likely responsible for the terrorist attacks in Boston,” the WSJ reported.
Kalans company had said in April that it had received a subpoena from the Federal Bureau of Investigation over the Boston attacks.
