How Does Uber Work
HOW DOES UBER WORK FOR CUSTOMERS (PASSENGERS)
Passengers can download the Uber app for Android and iOS smartphones. Through their phones, they can order a taxi, get notified when a driver accepts then sent some details about the car and even the name of the driver. Using the app, passengers can see the driver on a map, so there is no need to wait outside until it arrives. Payment is made using pre-loaded payment details so there is no need to worry about cash and card payments on arrival. A review system ensures Uber can keep an eye on quality drivers (and passengers).
HOW IT WORKS FOR TAXI DRIVERS AT UBER
Drivers, using their own car can use Uber to earn cash as a taxi driver in major towns and cities across the world. Drivers can work their own schedule and get paid weekly using the Uber app. Drivers simply apply to drive through the site, selecting the area in which they operate. Drivers must meet some basic requirements including aged 21+, have 3 years driving experience, have a clean driving licence and pass a background check. Using the app, drivers are notified automatically by passengers who need a ride, the driver that accepts the job first will shut off other drivers in the area from the fare. Passengers and drivers can rate each other to encourage a quality experience for all Uber users.
