#WhyIDrive Los Angeles: Paige

When Paige moved to Los Angeles from Houston, Texas — our West Coast city seemed too big and too far from home. Luckily, Paige found a way to make her new city her own. The connections she made with the riders she picked up as an Uber driver-partner made LA not only a little less scary, but also gave her the extra income she needed to pursue her dreams.

For Paige, the flexibility of the Uber platform gives her the ability to go from her band practice to a show — or back to Texas to visit her mom, without worrying about a schedule.

Our driver-partners are as unique as our sprawling city, driving full-time and part-time, on weekends and weekdays. Join them and drive toward your own goal today.
