We are excited to announce a collaboration with Life Reimagined, a wholly owned non-profit subsidiary of AARP, to offer millions of members the opportunity to earn income as a driver-partner with Uber in a way that is flexible, convenient, and highly adaptable to their lifestyle.
We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
