Uber’s mission is to reimagine the way the world moves for the better. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: How do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 15 billion trips later, we’re building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.
Delivery drivers using Uber are independent contractors who work on their own schedule with flexible hours. Uber is available in more than 10,000 cities worldwide. Signing up is easy for most people. We welcome drivers from other parts of the driving industry, such as bus, truck, taxi, limo, catering, and commercial drivers. We also welcome rideshare drivers and drivers who have been active on other driving apps and services. Driving with Uber is a good way to earn additional money. And you might also be eligible to deliver with Uber Eats. It’s easy to get started.
