Uber is releasing a new way to reward drivers with increased earnings and discounts on everything from gas to college tuition. This new program is called Uber Pro, and today, senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur breaks down how this new program works and how it will help drivers earn more.
New! Uber Pro is now available in the following locations:
Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Nashville, NYC, Orange County, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Raleigh-Durham, Richmond.
Prior availability: Boston, Chicago, D.C., Denver, New Jersey, New Orleans, Phoenix, Orlando, Seattle, and Tampa.
Uber Eats couriers will also be able to access the Uber Pro program as well, if they deliver in one of the cities Uber Pro has expanded to.
New for Uber Eats-only drivers: Uber is now offering the same Pro program to Uber Eats-only drivers, called Uber Eats Pro. Learn more about Uber Eats Pro here.
I count myself among the thousands of driver who feel undervalued, under-appreciated and underpaid. While Uber and Lyft have paid lip service to appreciation of their drivers, very little has changed in how much we are paid or how much we are recognized.
Recently, I sat in on a presentation in which Uber unveiled their new Uber Pro program in an effort to remedy many of the issues and complaints rideshare drivers experience.
