In the Driver’s Seat | Ahmedabad
JITENDRA VYAS: A close runner up to the Uber Cup competition in Ahmedabad. Jitendra is a true star! His son is in the Army and bought his father a car as a retirement present. Having put his car on Uber, Jitendra is one of our hardest working partner drivers and consistently gets the best ratings on our system.
“Today, I’m happy because I get to meet new people everyday, hear their stories and most importantly, spend time with my family. For an old man like me, Uber has made a big difference”, says Jitendra
He has come to find that effort is justly rewarded on Uber’s flexible platform, and we are proud to consider him a part of our family.
HITESH DARBAR: Hitesh used to work in a photocopy shop after which he bought his own rickshaw. After diligently saving up for years, he finally bought his own hatchback and put it on the Uber platform. After just four months at Uber he was able to afford a second car to put on Uber. He goes out of his way to get trips and despite not knowing how to read or write, he’s comfortable using the Uber app.
When asked about his journey he says, “Uber has given me the chance to work for myself. Working with Uber has given me the freedom to work the way I want, when I want. Now, I’m a proud fleet owner of two cars.”
JAGDISH PATEL: One of our top partner drivers here who’s a favourite among riders. He used to drive for a boss who exploited him and did not pay him his fair share despite working long hours. Ever since he’s bought his own car and put in on Uber, things have been looking up for him. He loves driving with Uber and is now saving up to buy his own house.
“Before Uber I was working long hours and not earning barely enough to support my family. Ever since I joined Uber I feel like I am the one in control of my future. Problems will keep coming, but this time I am prepared to face them”
