At Uber, we’re proud to have driver partners who are transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses. As we honor their service to our country on Veterans Day on November 11, we wanted to highlight some of the events in Boston, as well as some family-friendly activities for the week.

Partner Spotlight: Benjamin

Partner Benjamin J.Partnering with Uber allows US Army Veteran Benjamin to have a flexible schedule while pursuing his passions in music. He found Uber was a great fit for musicians, especially with a family and classes to attend at Berklee School of Music. Playing gigs can have an irregular schedule, and he enjoys being able to have the flexibility to perform, work, and study on an itinerary he sets.
 
Uber On,
