Everyday people are helping transform the way Queensland moves.
Find out what Uber means to them.
“I started driving on Uber on a casual basis due to no job at the time. My husband is a truck driver and due to the weather had little work so this was to help pay for our household expenses. I love meeting and greeting people from all walks of life and from all over the world. We have some fantastic conversations and learn new things everyday."
“As a startup business owner, driving with Uber helps with cashflow as we grow instead of relying on investor capital or government assistance. It’s been fantastic to earn additional income around my schedule whilst providing a service riders love.”
“Last year I choose to take a redundancy from my specialist workers compensation role of 10.5 years. I have since decided to formalise the skills and experience I have gained through volunteering extensively in grassroots sports by commencing a Bachelor of Business majoring in Sports Management and Events Management at Griffith University. It's been 12 years since I last studied and I'm so excited!"
Over 7,000 driver-partners.
Together they provide safe, reliable and affordable rides for over half a million Queenslanders.
“I drive for the flexibility and ease. If I wanted to jump on a plane tomorrow and travel I could. That is why I love Uber."
“I am a retired firefighter and I’m on my own now. I was looking for something to fill in my alone time and I decided to start driving with Uber. It has worked out wonderfully, I am grateful each day for the decision.”
“Uber has proven to be a dream job. I am in control of my life. I set my hours, I choose how much I earn, I learn so much about the world from my amazing riders, and Uber also allows me time to develop my pottery business.”
“I recently lost my job as a mining engineer. It was really stressful being out of work, but thanks to Uber I now have a way to support my family, with the flexibility to go job hunting when I can.” - Gardner, Uber Queensland Driver-Partner
