Uber's Economic Impact

Uber’s Impact

Uber’s wide impact is incalculable: helping a jobseeker to an interview, a parent get home in time for family dinner, a businesswoman with an important client meeting, or a student arrive home safely from a night out with friends. What we can tabulate, however, are the raw numbers and projections for Uber’s direct economic impact in the State of Florida.

Tens of Thousands of Entreprenurial Floridians

Uber is unlocking economic opportunity and empowering entrepreneurs across the Sunshine State. Driver partners are supplementing their income or working full-time while being their own boss and setting their own schedule. This is just the beginning.





Supporting Florida’s Tourism Economy

People from across the country and around the world flock to Florida for the sandy beaches, vibrant nightlife, cultural diversity, and good eats. The Florida economy thrives on tourism. Once they’re here, Uber gets visitors to their destinations affordably, quickly, and hassle-free so they have more time and money to spend where they want.
