Celebrating Parents Who Move Our Community

We’re taking a moment to recognize the parents that keep our city moving. In addition to balancing school schedules, full time jobs, and more, these parents find additional time to hit the road to support their family and community.

Whether they drive a few hours per week to several hours a day, the following few partners represent a much larger group of dedicated parents who take advantage of Uber’s flexibility to make their family’s every dollar go further.

Meet ScottScott Tincher

As a professional sales consultant and veteran, driving with Uber enables Scott to spend time with his five children, all under the age of eleven. Between seeing the kids off to school and packing lunches, driving with Uber allows him to maintain a steady stream of earnings. 

“Uber has made it easy to attend all school functions, something I haven’t been able to do in over two years”

The activities range from a night out with his girls, to their favorite: a trip to Chuck E. Cheese’s, where you’re guaranteed to find them in the photo booth, taking pictures with Chuck E. himself.

“Selling used cars is very flexible, if there’s a slow day – I’m able to leave early to have dinner with my family. After the girls are in bed, I’m able to hit the road again to make extra money for the day!” -Robert, Cincinnati Partner

Driving with Uber is a great way to transform an underutilized household asset into an earnings opportunity that can help pay for a mortgage, school tuition, family fun, or even a vacation. More importantly, it’s a way for parents to earn extra income while being able to spend time with their family – ensuring they never miss a special moment.
