Uber driver-partners in Colombo come from all walks of life. They each have a unique reason for choosing to drive with Uber.

The next time you’re in an Uber, ask your driver for his #WhyIDrive story, snap a great picture of him (and you) and post it on our Facebook page. We’re picking the five best submissions – the best part, our five winners get three free rides, up to Rs.500 each! Entries close on 30th June 2016.

“I served the Sri Lanka Army for 22 years. Upon retirement, I purchased a car, and worked at a few taxi companies. When Uber started in Sri Lanka, I joined immediately, and I haven’t looked back since. I love the flexibility and I have no hesitation to recommend Uber – I mean, my wife and son use it too. I am so proud to be an Uber driver-partner!” – Prabhath

“When I heard of Uber, I thought it would be a brilliant opportunity to start a new business. I have all the tools I need to analyse my drivers and vehicles on the system, which makes it easy for me to manage my fleet. I started with one car, and now have a total of three.” – Amal
