At Uber, we’re proud to play a role in strengthening Edmonton’s economy while making it easier, safer and more affordable for people to get wherever they are going.

We’re on track to create the equivalent of over 2,000 full-time jobs for Edmonton driver partners by the end of the year.

Be it on a full-time or part-time basis, thousands of Edmontonians have found that Uber is a new way to earn a living at a time when it’s needed most.

Expanding Entrepreneurship

While the Uber platform is available globally, the benefits our technology provides are most directly felt at a home. Entrepreneurial local citizens power the platform, while meeting the needs of their fellow citizens.

In Edmonton, there are already hundreds of entrepreneurial partners who are choosing to drive with Uber as a way to build a small business and supplement their income. Our partners come from all walks of life, and previous professional experiences, which is what makes getting a ride on the Uber platform that much more personable and fun!

Driver-partners are using the Uber platform in many different and flexible ways that suit their personal needs, from earning a full-time income to supplementing their salaries at other jobs. One common thread is that drivers are using the Uber platform to support their families or the lives they are choosing to lead by being their own boss behind the wheel. According to a national survey we conducted in the US, where partners have had a longer period of time to see the benefits of the platform, the vast majority of driver partners say they are better off financially because of Uber.

Thousands of Safe, Reliable Rides

Every week, thousands of people across Edmonton are choosing Uber to connect to safe and hassle-free rides that support the local economy and small business growth. Uber is committed to bringing more economic opportunities to the men and women of Edmonton. We’re proud of our impact so far, but we’re not done yet. We look forward to working with City of Edmonton to create more choice, more opportunity and safer streets for all.

We encourage you to join the over 12,500 people who have signed the petition to keep Edmonton moving and protect jobs. Together we can make sure Edmonton is recognized for being a modern city that embraces new ideas and new solutions, like more than 30 other jurisdictions across the world which have already adopted regulations for ridesharing.
