Meet Ron: Winner of a brand new car!

Meet Ron, Cleveland Driver-Partner

After winning himself a brand new 2016 Toyota Scion IA, courtesy of Motorcars Cleveland, Ron’s gratitude was beyond what we could have hoped for. He’s a top-rated partner that has completed nearly 1,400 trips and has maintained a nearly perfect rating over the past year. After, finding out that Ron was going to have to stop driving at the end of this year due to his vehicle eligibility, the happiest moment for us was knowing that now, he can Uber on!

Ron began driving in May 2015 as a way to earn income to support his family. After completing his first couple of trips he realized that this was an opportunity like none other. He said it best himself, “I can make money whenever I want! It’s simple to turn on the app when you have free time and turn it off when it’s family time.” Ron mentioned that he’s heading to visit his grandchildren in the upcoming weeks for the third time since he began driving with Uber—in the past he was lucky to go once a year.

This Cleveland sports enthusiast usually drives about 45 hours per week and has found that Uber is “not just for the drinking crowds anymore—it’s a lifestyle.” From providing rides from work to grocery store runs and the gym, he truly enjoys helping others move about their day. His most memorable moment is “winning my brand new car of course!”
Ron is a one-of-a-kind of guy that we’re lucky to have moving riders across Cle. His dedication to Uber and his family is nothing short of inspiring to all of us.

Be sure to say hi if you’re connected to Ron in his brand new 2016 Scion IA!
