Be Your Own Boss: Drive on the Uber Platform

You probably already know how much riders love Uber, but what about the folks behind the wheel? Partners are the engine that powers Uber, and we’re proud to work with them in over 200 cities around the world. Partners who drive on the Uber platform love it because they make higher earnings than traditional cab drivers and have the flexibility to set their own hours.

How It Works

You drive your car and set your schedule — the app on your Uber iPhone will help you connect to your customers. Switch it on. See people near you who need a ride. Pick them up. Take them places. Get your fares. It’s that simple.

An Uber partnership can be a great fit for anyone; and a fantastic way to supplement your income. Check out this video featuring teachers who have chosen Uber and are realizing their goals.

The Opportunity

  • Flexible Hours + Great Earning Potential: Uber partners enjoy a 24/7 flexible schedule and great earning potential. In the Baton Rouge market, earnings can be $30+ per hour during busy times! The name of the game here is choice – Uber partners can choose their own schedules and run their business the way they want to.
  • Insurance Coverage: Uber’s robust insurance coverage for ridesharing partners includes $1 million of liability coverage per incident, $1 million of uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage per incident, and collision cost coverage.
  • Safety: Uber is focused on the safety of partners, just as much as riders. Our ratings system and app platform ensure that partners know who will be riding with them every time.

How to Apply

Applying to be an Uber partner is simple. Visit our Baton Rouge partners website to submit your initial application info. We’ll be in touch soon!

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities.
