Uber Driver-Partner Drives For a Local Cause
There are many reasons as to why individuals choose to drive on the Uber platform. Whether you’re paying off student loans, saving up for a family vacation, or fundraising for a cause close to one’s heart, partnering with Uber is a flexible way to earn an income.
Meet Greg. Greg has been an Uber Columbus driver-partner since the fall of 2015, joining the platform as a way to meet his personal fundraising goals for a cause near and dear to his heart: Pelotonia. Pelotonia, a grassroots bike tour founded in 2008, raises millions of dollars each year to fund cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.
Since 2009, Greg has been committed to Pelotonia’s efforts to end cancer through a combination of volunteering and riding. The reason why he rides is simple – “Each of us, if not personally affected by cancer, doesn’t have to look very far to find someone who has been.” Greg, like many others, rides for one reason and one goal: to end cancer.
Greg has found that Uber provides an easy way to raise money on his own schedule while also allowing him to meet interesting people along the way. “It’s an easy way for me to make money that I can designate to my ride for Pelotonia without even thinking twice about it; I can do it when I want to.”

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
