Celebrating Our Partners for Providing Over 1 Million Rides in the Tampa Bay Area

Hundreds of driver-partners gathered in Riverview this past Friday for a partner appreciation event in the Tampa Bay area, celebrating a huge milestone in our community:


1 year + 2000 partners = 1 million rides!


Using our technology to receive requests for rides, driver-partners from across Tampa Bay have provided over 1 million safe rides for their neighbors and visiting tourists.

More than 2,000 driver-partners are currently taking advantage of the unprecedented economic opportunity the Uber platform offers in the greater Tampa Bay area.

Together, these local entrepreneurs have taken home more than $10 million in just over a year, providing a valuable service in their community on their own schedule.

One such partner, Marcus Anderson, discovered Uber when he was trying to figure out how to adjust to civilian life.

“I officially learned about Uber through UberMilitary. The freedom to work around life as it happens is amazing,” Anderson said at the event in Riverview. “I’m giving back and still providing a unique service, even when not in uniform.”

Uber is thrilled to be part of Tampa Bay’s economic engine from Brandon to St. Pete and everywhere in between, and we remain committed to expanding opportunities for our valued partners in every neighborhood.

Thank you for your support this past year.

Uber on,
Team Uber Tampa Bay
