Introducing the Work Hub, a new way for drivers to find essential work

April 6 / Canada

The most important thing we can do right now is support drivers. They’re doing essential work to keep our communities moving as we fight this virus, but with fewer trips happening they need more ways to earn. With the Work Hub, we hope drivers can find more work opportunities, whether that’s with another of Uber’s businesses or at another company.”

– Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber CEO

During this difficult period, drivers are more important than ever: every trip you’re providing now is an essential trip for your community. But with fewer people moving around, we know there are fewer trips available, and you may be earning less money driving. That’s why we’re introducing the Work Hub, a new way for you to find other work, whether with Uber or another company. 

If Uber Eats is in your city, you can turn on delivery requests with a single tap in the Driver app. If Uber Freight is in your city, carriers get paid for every load they deliver and we’re providing priority eligibility screening for drivers with a Class A Commercial Driver’s License.

As we respond to COVID-19, the Work Hub will also include opportunities outside of Uber. During this challenging time, we will be teaming up with companies that are currently hiring, like Cornershop, 7Eleven, and others, to get drivers connected to jobs. Please check the Driver app regularly for updates.

Government relief information: the US government has passed legislation that may make you eligible to apply for government financial support for lost earnings due to COVID-19. We’re gathering information to guide you through the claims process. We’ll let you know as soon as we have updates.

Thank you for helping move what matters. 

If you are a company that is hiring and would like more information about the Work Hub, please let us know.
