By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.

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, such as Bridj, Curb, Lyft, Via, and Wingz.
