Celebrating Mothers’ Day in South Florida
In honor of Mothers’ Day this year, we are celebrating the remarkable women who drive with Uber in South Florida.
Meet Diana, a mother of two, self-proclaimed “soccer mom” and driver-partner from Palm Beach who has been driving since January.
How did you first get started driving with Uber?
My 16-year-old son! I had heard of Uber before, but he really encouraged me to try it out. He helped me sign up and download the app onto my phone.
What do you like best about driving?
I drive part-time in between volunteering with my kids. Both of my boys – ages 16 and 11 – play travel soccer and I volunteer with their teams as club manager, which takes up a lot of time. My husband is French and he loves soccer, so they both starting playing when they were old enough. I didn’t grow up with it but now I’ve ended up loving soccer. My kids are my favorite players in the world!
What would you say to other women interested in driving?
Since I started driving, I’ve had a lot of riders who tell me how much they love having a woman driver. I love that I can spend time with my kids and make a little extra money at the same time. We are also helping the community, making sure people who might have had a few drinks get home safely by providing a service that is easy and convenient. I also take people to work who maybe can’t afford a car, or aren’t within walking distance of work. Being able to help people out by driving is really important to me.
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.
