To celebrate the partners in Tampa Bay who go above and beyond, we launched Uber All-Star, a program where riders nominate their awesome drivers by including the hashtag #UberAllStar in their rating comments. The partner with the most nominations at the end of the month wins tickets to an upcoming Tampa Bay Lightning game, as well as an exclusive experience at the game.
Meet our Uber All-Stars
Check out the list below of our past Uber All-Stars. The program runs through April, so our next All-Star could be you!
Myron, who has been an Uber driver since May, won our first #UberAllStar contest by a landslide. Since Myron has a full-time job, he typically drives after work and on weekends on a part-time basis. He originally signed up to be a driver because he wanted to learn more about Uber as a business, and he figured the best way to learn would be to get on the road. Myron’s favorite part of driving with Uber is the communication with his riders—he loves conversing with riders and meeting new people.
Robert has been an Uber partner for several months, and he enjoyed driving so much, he gave up his full-time job to get on the road more. He loves his new day-to-day where he chooses his own schedule and gets to work for himself. Check out Robert and his wife on the Jumbotron at the Lightning game!
Uber All-Star Jerry and his wife take a photo outside Amalie Arena with Tampa Bay Lightning cheerleaders. What was Jerry most excited for? Getting the chance to drive the Zamboni!
Lisa described her Uber All-Star experience in her own words: "In December, my Uber riders nominated me as the #UberAllStar. My Tampa Bay Lightning VIP experience was amazing! We were surprised by a 1-on-1 with the legendary Brian Bradley, then the kids and I grabbed some food, sat back, and watched the game. After the first period, the cameras blasted the kids and I on the Jumbotron! Later, I got to drive the Zamboni! A group still in the stadium cheered and waved as I beeped the horn. To round off this perfect night, we snapped a picture with Thunderbug. This could not have been more perfect! Huge props to Uber and the Lightning for this once-in-a-lifetime, truly VIP experience!"
