About

Uber is a ride-hailing company that offers the Uber mobile app, which people use to submit a trip request that is automatically sent to a nearby Uber driver. The accepting Uber driver will then come pick up passengers and drop off at requested destinations. In 2019, there were 103 million monthly active users.

Requirements

Need to meet the minimum age to drive in your city. 1 year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (3 years if under 23 years old). Have a valid U.S. driver’s license. Use an eligible 4-door vehicle.

Tips

Take advantage of surge pricing; when the demand for rides goes up and supply of drivers goes down, the rate charged for a ride increases. Taking advantage of these times can lead to the potential for higher earnings. Stay in the city if you can; you are more likely to earn more. Take advantage of referrals and signup bonuses. Offer supplementary items. Keep good records! You are self-employed and will want to be prepared for tax season. Between rides, don’t drive aimlessly around. Instead, find a location that works well to park. Be friendly, have music on hand, and keep your car clean!
