Meet Our Veteran Driver Partners

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we’re celebrating our amazing driver partners who have served for our country and now change the way you move with Uber.

Check out their stories below!

I drove a cab for 10 years, and I like the freedom I have. I can come and go as I please. Uber saves me a lot of time. The whole system is a lot more driver and customer friendly.

Paul, Uber partner driver since July 2014

It’s wonderful – i love the flexibility and hours because I have my own business that I run. I like the accoutability factor with the ratings. It’s nice to have a standard I have to work towards. The clientele are wonderful, and I’ve been doing it since New Year’s. Uber is not like a cab ride, it’s more personal, it’s quicker, it’s more efficient, it’s cleaner, it’s more accountable. I just like driving and being around good people and learning about new parts of the city. It’s educational and I like helping people. I’ve helped a lot of people who were stranded and Uber was all they had. At least a dozen people over that time where they were so thankful in drastic situations.

I love the flexibility of being your own boss – being able to choose your own hours. It’s great just meeting new, random people.
Shaun, Uber partner driver since June 2014

Everybody that I’ve picked up loves it. I drove a regular cab 10 years ago, and I really didn’t like it. It’s a different clientele with Uber, and I enjoy it. It’s easier and everybody that I give rides to are very happy with it. It’s a good time, it’s really easy, and I make a few bucks on the side.

Greg, Uber partner driver since September 2014
