Founded in 2009, Uber is a rapidly growing transportation company throughout the world. Customers can request rides from qualified drivers through a mobile app. Rather than using traditional taxicabs, the company employs people to drive patrons in their vehicles.
Using a GPS-based location match system, the app links riders and drivers. Different Uber services are available depending on the nearby driver's experience, car model, and licensing. For most of the employees, driving privileges are standard and they do not require a commercial license or insurance coverage.
There are still criteria that must be met by vehicles. The Uber Black service is typically used by drivers with livery or other commercial licenses. The higher price of these rides is offset by high-end vehicles and professional drivers. The UberX service is more common among everyday drivers looking for additional income. Besides Uber Cabs, the company offers Uber SUVs and Uber LUXs at a higher price.
Every applicant must undergo a background check, as well as have a clean driving record.
In addition, candidates must be 21 years old, have three years of driving experience, and hold a valid driver's license for the state in which they will work.
A car inspection and certain requirements must also be met before a vehicle can qualify.
Work schedules are determined by drivers' availability. As well as the city or area in which workers are driving, earnings can rise or fall based on the number of riders picked up each day. Especially those working full-time hours report being able to make a good amount of money driving.
Uber continues to expand and add new services. In addition to food delivery services, UberEATS and UberRUSH also offer courier services. UberEATS allows customers to order food and have it delivered curbside by a driver. Items are picked up by UberRUSH couriers and delivered to their destinations. There are currently only a few cities that offer both services.
The payment of an Uber driver depends on the number of trips he takes and the number of hours he works. Therefore, it is changeable.
No, Although the company does not compensate fuel costs or car maintenance, it typically will cover passengers' damages.
If you want to be your own boss and work according to your convenience and timing Uber is the best option for you. It is a great side hustle too!
