Two Million Reasons for North Carolina #UberLOVE

Since connecting our first rider with a safe, reliable ride in North Carolina over a year and a half ago, we’ve expanded to now serve 10 cities across the Tar Heel State. And as of this week, we’re thrilled to announce that Uber has provided two million rides across North Carolina! Today, riders have more transportation choice than ever, while drivers enjoy more economic opportunity and freedom.
Reliability Across NC

Riders across the state have embraced the reliability and increased transportation choice that Uber provides. Today, nearly half of all North Carolinians have access to a safe, affordable ride just minutes away with Uber. In fact, of Uber’s 2 million trips in North Carolina, 85% had a driver arrive within 10 minutes.3.Uber_North-Carolina_Economic-Posters_coverage_r1

Uber’s Economic Impact

In the short 19 months since Uber’s first trip in North Carolina, driver-partners across the state have taken home over $20 million by driving on the Uber platform – making a living or supplementing their income with greater earnings. And UberMILITARY partners (active duty military, reservists, veterans and military spouses) alone have taken home over $1 million through the Uber platform.1.Uber_North-Carolina_Economic-Posters_money_r1

Tens of Thousands of Job Opportunities

The Uber platform has created more than 8,000 job opportunities for North Carolinians in every corner of the state. These opportunities allow individuals to start their own small businesses, set their own schedules, and enjoy the flexibility and greater earning potential Uber offers. Looking forward, we expect the Uber platform to create over 120,000 driver jobs by 2020!2.Uber_North-Carolina_Economic-Posters_jobs_r1
