Jose's story:
The marine biology student affords to study his passion

Meet Jose.

Driver-partner Jose moved to Los Angeles from Mexico to be closer to his family and seek new opportunities. While pursuing a college education was always something on his mind, Jose knew he needed to find a flexible earning opportunity that would allow him to attend school full-time.

After hearing about Uber, Jose knew he found that exact opportunity and signed up. Now, he can pay his bills on time, help his family, and study his passion — marine biology.

Jose is one of one of many people who are driving with Uber to support themselves while they go back to school to advance their career. There are over 400,000 active driver partners in the United States, and they’ve earned over $3.5 billion so far this year. 50% of drivers in the U.S. drive fewer than 10 hours per week and nearly 90% say they drive with Uber to be their own boss and set their own schedule.
