Chicago, Meet Henry – Our Sixth Star Award Winner

Every day across the world, Uber partners work seamlessly to move people around their cities. And in the midst of helping riders get from point A to point B, a driver can do something amazing. Together with American Express, we award one of these partners through our Sixth Star Award program.

Today, we’re excited to introduce you to Henry, Chicago’s very own Sixth Star Award winner. To thank him for his exceptional work, Henry will receive an Uber gift package including a $1,000 American Express gift card.

Thank you, Henry!

Winning the Sixth Star Award is no easy task. We look for “above-and-beyond” feedback from riders and a partner’s track record of excellence on the Uber system. Below is a Chicago rider’s feedback from his experience with Henry:


” The single nicest driver I have had, and we are very good customers. My left foot doesn’t work because of cancer ( I can walk, but I’m slow and I limp.) I had Henry drive me to a nearby Target to get a few things. Of his own volition, he came into the store and met me at checkout just to make sure I was okay. If I could give him six stars, I would.” 

In addition to partnering with Uber, Henry volunteers with the Chicago Public School’s “Safe Passage” program, where he helps ensure that students arrive safely to and from school in areas prone to gang violence. 

Every driver in the U.S. is eligible to win.

Riders—don’t forget to nominate your amazing drivers for a Sixth Star Award today by leaving a comment, along with your star rating, at the end of your ride.

To all our partners—thank you for your hard work and excellent service!
