Behind the Wheel: Atlanta’s Award-Winning Driver, Edith!

Every day across the nation, drivers on the Uber platform work hard to seamlessly and efficiently move people around their cities. And sometimes, in the midst of getting you from point A to point B, a driver does something unexpected and unforgettable.

With her southern charm & hospitality, Atlanta driver, Edith was selected as one of only three drivers from across the country to win Uber’s Inaugural Sixth Star Award!

Rider Shares Edith’s Six Star Service Story:

“I am currently healing from an amputation surgery and use a walker to get around. Edith picked me up, and I told her I had two stops to make, including a supermarket. After she dropped me off at the supermarket, I was in the store and heard someone calling my name behind me. There was Edith with a shopping cart. I just couldn’t believe it! She went with me throughout the store, helped me check out and even carried all my groceries inside when we got back to my house. Now who does that? Edith does. She is a WONDERFUL person, not just a driver!”

She’ll win an Uber gift package and $1000 gift card from American Express. We are so grateful for and inspired by her service.

Thank you for your Sixth Star Service, Edith!
