We launched Uber Pro last November as a way to recognize drivers for their commitment and quality service. With Uber Pro, drivers can unlock rewards that help earn more, spend less and help them make progress toward their goals一on and off the road.

Expanding to Boston and Washington, DC

Uber Pro kicked off as a beta in 8 US markets so we could collect feedback from drivers about what matters most to them, and make changes based on what we heard. Today we’re excited to share that Uber Pro is expanding to drivers in Washington, DC and Boston.

Expanding rewards to 2x more drivers

With Uber Pro, drivers can also get 100% tuition coverage at ASU Online toward a 4-year degree or non-degree certificate for themselves or a family member. Previously, this reward was available only to drivers with Diamond or Platinum status*. Now, drivers with Gold status will be eligible as well. This means more than 2 times more drivers in the 10 Uber Pro markets will have access to this reward.

We also wanted to share a few stats on who is using the ASU online reward, and how. Since launch, 25% of applicants are women and more than 50% of people who have enrolled through the program are family members. The most popular areas of study are Entrepreneurship, English as a Second Language, and technical degrees like Software Engineering and Information Technology.

Drivers take great pride in what they do, and they want to feel appreciated for going the extra mile for their riders. Uber Pro is one way we’re making that happen, and drivers tell us it’s a step in the right direction. We’re committed to keep helping drivers progress toward their goals一on and off the road.
