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.
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.
