Uber sticker

Under local regulations for British Columbia, all partners must display Uber decals on their vehicle while online. Place one on your front windshield on the passenger side and rear windshield on the driver side facing outward. You can remove them when you decide to go offline and save them for the next time. Pro tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.

Come to the Greenlight Hub location to pick up your two Uber stickers.
