$500 says Uber partners have it best

There’s never been a better time to drive with Uber in New York City. With ever-increasing demand, and greater trips per hour than ever before, drivers affiliated with Uber make more money than with any other car service, taxi company, or app platform. Period. We’re so confident in that fact, we’re giving new partners from for-hire bases $500 just to try us out.


The numbers are simple: A full-time uberX partner in NYC can gross up to $90,000 a year.


This month, we’re rolling out incentives and referral programs to prove it to every driver who joins Uber. For drivers currently on another NYC base, we’re offering new partners $500 after completing 20 trips on the Uber platform. For drivers already partnering with Uber, we’re offering $250 just for referring a new driver who tries out Uber.

We’re making a long-term investment in our platform and our partners. Put simply, more drivers help keep Uber the reliable, affordable, convenient platform New Yorkers know and love. With powerful earnings potential, transparent invoicing, and innovative partnerships like our vehicle financing program, we’re excited to help thousands of new entrepreneurs—our partners—build their own small businesses with Uber. There are many exceptional drivers in NYC who have yet to discover Uber. Know a driver who deserves to be an Uber partner? Let them know that the 6s and 7s won’t do — send them our way and earn $100 in referral credit if they partner up. There’s no limit to how much credit you can earn! Refer a driver here.

Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
