Today we are excited to announce the next generation of the Uber Partner app, designed to give drivers more information so Uber works better for them and puts personalized insights right at their fingertips.
Driver-partners are using the Uber platform in many different ways, from earning a full-time income to supplementing their salaries at other jobs. Drivers have complete flexibility and control over their use of the Uber app, so they can make money on their own time to meet their own unique goals. Check out the top 10 facts you may not know about Uber driver-partners.
A recent survey of our driver-partners found that from Los Angeles, to Houston, to Baltimore there is no “typical” driver with Uber. Watch some of their stories.
On Thursday we partnered with Kygo to host a secret show and release his new single live for the very first time. We caught up with him backstage after the show to talk about the single and what’s next.
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.
We are excited to share the second issue of Momentum Magazine, a publication for our community of drivers.

In March, we made the pledge to economically empower 1,000,000 women as drivers with Uber by 2020. To drive toward that commitment, we have created a dedicated global team that is focused on making that goal a reality—and improving the experience for women drivers along the way. Meet a few of the leaders on the team, and see how they are driving this initiative forward in their communities.
For the more than 55 million Americans with disabilities, getting around isn’t always easy. This month our nation celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which sought to level the playing field for both job opportunity and mobility for the Americans with disabilities. We wanted to mark this milestone with an update on some of the work we’ve been doing to improve Uber’s accessibility for both riders and drivers with disabilities.
