Overview

Where does Uber do business?

Uber is a business based in San Francisco, CA. It was founded in 2009 and offers work to independent contractors in state across the USA.

Uber is an app that connects riders with nearby driver-partners in 260 cities and 45 countries.

Uber driver-partners use their personal cars and pay for their gas and expenses. The company is primarily a marketplace platform for passengers and drivers. Uber’s smartphone app connects riders with drivers using GPS technology.

Depending upon the location and time of day, Uber trips can be cheaper than a standard cab fare. Savings drop when you use the service during peak times as there may be a higher demand for drivers. At such times, which can include rush hour traffic hours, you may expect to pay higher rates than usual.

Uber also features a unique rating system. After an Uber trip is complete, both the driver and passenger are able to rate one another. Riders can comment on aspects such as the promptness of their driver’s service and cleanliness of the vehicle. Drivers rate the behavior of the passengers.

How do drivers earn?

Driver partners earn on a per trip basis with time and distance rates. 

The company processes payments, which are made by passengers via the credit card they added to Uber’s platform at signup.

How much can you expect to earn driving with Uber?

As of August 2018, the national median hourly income for an Uber driver-partner is $14.66 and the median weekly income is $586.40*.

Actual earnings vary depending on number of rides accepted and taken, time of day, location and other factors.

What do you need to start driving with Uber?

Side gigs can give you more flexibility than regular 9 to 5 jobs but there are still requirements to meet.  Here are some of the criteria to drive with Uber:

  • Uber driver-partners must pass a driving history and criminal background check.
  • Driver-partners must have a valid driving license.
  • You will also need proof of vehicle insurance.
  • An eligible vehicle.
  • A smartphone.

Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents can apply. The minimum age to drive for Uber is 21.
