Celebrating Pinellas County driver-partners
Uber has been in Florida for 3 years now, and some partners have been driving with Uber for almost as long. So we wanted to show our appreciation for the driver-partners who move Florida—specifically Pinellas County—and get riders where they’re going safely and affordably.
Last Sunday, February 26, Uber hosted a driver-partner appreciation event at Countryside Lanes in Clearwater. More than 250 people attended the event, where driver-partners and their family and friends were able to bowl; play arcade games; and enjoy refreshments, a visit from Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, and several raffles.
Driver-partners won UberEATS credits, Tampa Bay Lightning tickets, and a weekend staycation at the Kimpton Hotel Zamora in St. Pete.
At the event, Uber team members had the opportunity to chat with driver-partners about their experience driving with Uber, and it was great to hear their amazing stories and bring them together to swap tips and stories.
We met with a few driver-partners who shared some of their experiences. Here’s what they had to say:
To all the driver-partners who attended our event: Thank you for coming, and we hope you enjoyed yourselves! We loved getting to talk with partners and their families face-to-face and hear how Uber has impacted your lives.
Thank you to Countryside Lanes for hosting the event and Kimpton Hotel Zamora, who donated a generous raffle prize!
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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
