Millions of drivers around the world choose Uber’s platform to access and participate in independent work. Some choose to earn on the side, while others drive to support their families, or pursue long-term ambitions. Whatever their motivation, we know how important it is to recognize them for their ongoing commitment and quality. That’s why we launched Uber Pro in the U.S. last year, and expanded it nationwide so even more drivers could benefit. Today, Uber Pro reaches another milestone: our one-of-a-kind program is going global, launching in India and Mexico with new, unique program elements tailored to each country.
Uber Pro first launched with rewards built specifically for drivers, based on their feedback. We did the same for Uber Pro in India, delivering on what people told us they wanted. As a result, eligible Uber Pro drivers in India will receive access to free medical consultations, micro-credit loans, discounts for education and coaching modules that can be passed along to their children, as well as helpful rewards like faster airport pickups. With the help of partners, we’re also providing additional savings on car maintenance costs and discounts on life insurance.
We’re also launching Uber Pro across several cities in Mexico, including Mexico City. Eligible drivers can access higher education through our partnership with UTEL, which is partnering with Uber to offer discounted, flexible study programs. With the help of partners, we’re also introducing the first free driver debit card available in Latin America, so everyday spending is rewarded with cash back and no annual fee. Eligible drivers will now also have instant access to earnings through Instant Pay, which they can use to cash out up to five times per day–free of cost. Other rewards include access to Quest promotions, faster airport pickups, 24/7 phone support, visibility into trip duration, and much more.
With the program’s expansion to India and Mexico, we’re excited to continue recognizing those that take pride in offering a great trip experience. In doing so, our goal is to help drivers get a step closer to their long-term ambitions, on and off the road.
Requires completion of a minimum number of trips and maintaining eligibility status.
