#6StarDrivers: When 5 Stars Just Aren’t Enough

July 6, 2017 / Manila

Amidst the hundreds of Uber drivers you’re matched with in your lifetime, sometimes you stumble upon one that’s worth mentioning whether on social media or in family dinners. You encounter drivers who go above and beyond their call of duty of getting you from your pickup point to your destination, and when that happens, all you can do in return is to rate them 5 Stars. But what if 5 Stars aren’t enough for these honorable drivers?

Uber is launching its #6StarDriver program this August to give back to the drivers who make 5 Star ratings seem inadequate. To the driver who personally returned your wallet, to the driver who took extra care of you and brought you home safely after having too many drinks, to the driver who rushed you to the hospital when he sensed a medical emergency – this one’s for them.

All you have to do is submit a nomination for your #6StarDriver and if your entry is chosen, he or she will be featured in our drivers’ newsletter along with your story. Along with this, the #6StarDriver of the month will be receiving a special Uber Driver Package and a certificate of recognition. You will also be receiving special Uber discounts if your nomination wins the #6StarDriver award. The nomination form will be sent to you whenever you rate your driver 5 Stars so remember to keep on rating!

Here at Uber, we are truly grateful for these drivers who make it a point to go beyond what is expected of them. To all the heroes who sit behind the steering wheel, thank you.
