Thousands of New Jobs This Year in Edmonton
At Uber, we’re proud to play a role in strengthening Edmonton’s economy while making it easier, safer and more affordable for people to get wherever they are going.
We’re on track to create the equivalent of over 2,000 full-time jobs for Edmonton driver partners by the end of the year.
Be it on a full-time or part-time basis, thousands of Edmontonians have found that Uber is a new way to earn a living at a time when it’s needed most.
While the Uber platform is available globally, the benefits our technology provides are most directly felt at a home. Entrepreneurial local citizens power the platform, while meeting the needs of their fellow citizens.
In Edmonton, there are already hundreds of entrepreneurial partners who are choosing to drive with Uber as a way to build a small business and supplement their income. Our partners come from all walks of life, and previous professional experiences, which is what makes getting a ride on the Uber platform that much more personable and fun!
Driver-partners are using the Uber platform in many different and flexible ways that suit their personal needs, from earning a full-time income to supplementing their salaries at other jobs. One common thread is that drivers are using the Uber platform to support their families or the lives they are choosing to lead by being their own boss behind the wheel. According to a national survey we conducted in the US, where partners have had a longer period of time to see the benefits of the platform, the vast majority of driver partners say they are better off financially because of Uber.
Thousands of Safe, Reliable Rides
Every week, thousands of people across Edmonton are choosing Uber to connect to safe and hassle-free rides that support the local economy and small business growth. Uber is committed to bringing more economic opportunities to the men and women of Edmonton. We’re proud of our impact so far, but we’re not done yet. We look forward to working with City of Edmonton to create more choice, more opportunity and safer streets for all.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
