Empowering Entrepreneurship in the Queen City
Uber’s technology empowers men and women around the world to become entrepreneurs and small business owners. From Chennai to Cape Town to Charlotte, hundreds of thousands of drivers have a steady source of income with an earning potential unmatched in the industry.
Uber’s Vehicle Solutions program helps offer greater access to this opportunity. By partnering with finance companies, we have created a program that connects drivers with lenders who recognize the earning potential of the Uber platform. This program is designed to provide access to vehicle financing for those who may have had difficulty obtaining it otherwise.
Partners here in Charlotte and around the world participate in Uber’s Vehicle Solutions program. Meet a few of them below:
When Randi, an avid guitarist, moved to Charlotte, she was eager to partner with Uber. She had been a chauffeur before moving to the Queen City and loved the work, but didn’t have a qualifying vehicle. She participated in Uber’s Vehicle Solutions program, and can now use her new vehicle not only with Uber, but to get to and from other part-time jobs as well.
“With Uber’s Vehicle Solutions program, I’ve been able to get a new car that has helped me to maximize my earning potential. I’m making a great living, and still get to do what I love. Driving on the Uber platform has given me the freedom to start my own business while having the flexibility to still teach guitar and play gigs around town.”
As a partner that drives on the Uber platform full time, Ashley wanted a newer vehicle that got great mileage. Through our Vehicle Solutions program, she was able to trade in her older vehicle and get a new one.
“Through the Vehicle Solutions program, I was able to get a great vehicle to use on the Uber platform. The process was really clear and easy – it’s helped me get back on track. I would definitely recommend it.”
Jonny initially partnered with Uber to supplement his income. He used our Vehicle Solutions program to purchase a new vehicle, and now drives on the platform full time.
“My vehicle was too old – Uber’s Vehicle Solutions program was a great way for me to get a modern vehicle to use on the Uber platform. I’ve been really happy with the program – I’ve even been recommending it to all my friends.”

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. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
