Driving with Aloha

Why Do People Partner With Uber?

We asked some of the our driver-partners in Hawaii why they drive with Uber. They can all agree on some really great reasons like flexibility, being their own boss and of course, the income opportunity. We’d love to tell you more about this, but we thought we’d let our driver-partners tell you themselves.


Uber is always ‘open’ and there’s demand for rides 24 hours a day. That means that as an active driver-partner, you can earn fares at any time and on your schedule.

Are you a parent? Are you a student?  Do you have a crazy schedule? Have you been looking for that primary or secondary income that can fit your schedule? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Uber might be for you.


Drive when you want, as often or a little as you want. Decide where and how often you want to drive while you build your small business. What you put in to driving with Uber is what you get out!


Whether you’re a former taxi driver, a student, a parent, a veteran, a hula dancer or anything in between, there’s great earning potential driving on the Uber platform. In a recent study, Uber represents a steady source of income for 3 out of 4 partners. In the same study, we find that 1 out of 3 drivers are using Uber to make extra spending money. Whether fares are your primary income or a way to supplement your earnings, Uber is here for you.

Who are the drivers?

They’re your neighbors.  They’re members of the military community. They’re your aunties and uncles. They’re your cousins. They’re your friends. They’re all part of the Uber ohana, and they live where you live.



What This Means For Hawaii

Policymakers around the US are acknowledging the importance of ridesharing to our partners. Last year alone, 22 jurisdictions across the US (cities and states) adopted smart, modern regulations for the ridesharing industry, ensuring that Uber and other platforms can continue to connect riders with safe, reliable and hassle-free rides — along with a better way for drivers to make a living. We are excited to see the same thing happen here to bring flexible and entrepreneurial opportunities to Hawaii residents like you.
