Meet our Portland All Star Driver, Mark

May 23, 2017 / Portland

We’re continuing to celebrate outstanding driver-partners in Portland who help keep the city moving. Our latest All Star Driver, Mark, got to enjoy the ultimate Timbers matchday experience with his two friends Sonia and Teresa. Their experience included a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium, Timbers merchandise, and free concessions at the May 14 match against Atlanta.

Mark was selected because of the amazing service he brings to his riders and his ability to inspire adventure in everyone he meets.

 

Get to know Mark:

Mark is a Portland native who drives with Uber part-time and also works as a travel agent. Traveling is actually one of his favorite personal pastimes and his adventures around the globe have included exotic locales like Costa Rica and Belize. Outside of work, Mark loves spending time with his 2 daughters and playing the guitar.

His most memorable rider experience was when he took a family from China to go hiking at Multnomah Falls, just outside of Portland. The family invited him to join for the hike, and in a moment of spontaneity, Mark accepted.

With over 1,000 trips under his belt, Mark knows Portland inside and out. As an Uber partner he’s shown people from all over the world around the beauty that is Portland, gathering wonderful comments from riders along the way. Below are just a few examples:

Mark was a very pleasant driver. Thank you for a smooth ride into work.” – Jan
