Price Cuts for Riders with Guaranteed Earnings for Drivers
We’re committed to making Uber the most affordable transportation option for Tampa Bay and an attractive economic opportunity for local entrepreneurs. So as tourist season ends, we are reducing prices in Tampa Bay to achieve better outcomes for both riders and drivers.
The upside for the rider is obvious, but it’s also important to note that with increased demand drivers’ income goes up as well. More demand increases driver efficiency on the road, resulting in more trips per hour, and more earnings for every hour spent driving.
We’re so confident in the earnings gains drivers will see that we’re making earnings guarantees alongside the new pricing. We feel that it is important for drivers to have this kind of certainty and comfort going into new pricing.
This method has worked in dozens of cities across the country. In nearby South Florida we also found that new pricing led to higher earnings.
We expect that these seasonal price changes will help bring lower costs for riders, higher earnings for drivers, shorter wait times for both, and a better experience for all in Tampa Bay.
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.
