Following the pilot of Uber Pro in some cities across the United States, Uber has announced that it’s rolling it out across the whole country as well as in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Uber Pro is a rewards program that offers drivers perks for the effort they put into their work, for example, drivers can save money on fuel, roadside assistance, dent repairs, and even get all of their tuition covered for Arizona State University Online (ASU Online).
Commenting on Uber Pro, Sunil Parekh, Senior Product Manager at Uber, said:
“Those already participating in Uber Pro have told us how much they value saving extra on the road, and how proud they are when achieving their next status tier. Thousands more are taking advantage of numerous Uber Pro rewards, the most popular of which include 100% tuition coverage at ASU online, the ability to see the duration of a trip in advance, and faster pickups at airports.”
The expansion of Uber Pro is just the latest measure the company is taking to reward drivers’ efforts and ultimately help with day-to-day costs. Earlier this year, it launched the Summer of Rewards program which gives drivers cashback when they use their Uber Visa Debit Card to buy fuel. It also expanded its partnership with Fair earlier this month so that Uber Pro drivers can earn Fair Credits.
The newly added countries join India, Brazil, France, and Mexico where the scheme has already been launched to assist Uber drivers.
