In the Driver’s Seat | Bangalore

Our partners work tirelessly to get you where you need to be, seamlessly and reliably. At Uber, they are the pulse that fuels our dream to evolve the way the world moves.
They too have aspirations and dreams. You may have heard some of their stories while on a ride with them, and we’d like to share a few more untold ones here. Keep watching this space.

BASAVARAJ HN: Basavaraj started off driving for a transport agency and had a hard time supporting his family. With the conditions that his job put him through and the lowly income it provided, he couldn’t make enough time for his family. Partnering with Uber has changed his life.

When asked about his journey he says, “With earnings from Uber, I’m able to pay for my daughter’s education in a quality engineering school and live a comfortable life with my family.”

MURALI C: Murali is the quintessential example of how persistence pays off in life. Through the years he barely scraped by with what he was making by driving a Maruti Omni. He even worked for a transport agency as a salaried employee to earn a little extra to support his family.

Eighteen months ago, Murali became an Uber partner driver and that step turned his life around. He is finally able to live life on his own terms, support his family and live a happy, healthy life.


BHARATHI: Bharathi hails from a small town in Andhra Pradesh and came to Bangalore in 2005 to live with her brother. She started with a tailoring job. Not happy with her work, she soon started looking for other jobs and joined an NGO which was looking to hire women drivers. In October 2013, Bharathi became a partner with Uber and within 4 months she decided to buy her own vehicle. She hasn’t looked back since.

They have all come to find that effort is justly rewarded on Uber’s flexible platform, and we are proud to consider all our partners a part of our family.
