Uber is a ridesharing service that has gained a lot of attention in recent years thanks to its many features, which help a lot of people around the world save time, save money, and even make money if they sign up to drive.
As a driver, you can make a nice monthly income by helping people in your city reach their destination. If you sign up as a driver, not only will you be able to make good money by working as an independent contractor, but you will also get to be your own boss and have the freedom to work whenever you want.
On the other hand, if you sign up as a rider, you’ll be able to easily find rides for any price and also any occasion by using features such as uberX, uberXL, UberSELECT, UberBLACK, UberSUV, UberLUX, and UberPOOL. The latter is a carpool service within the Uber app that allows you to get cheaper rides by sharing the total cost with other riders.
Here we’ll show both riders and drivers how to create an account, so if you’re really interested in getting started with the world’s most popular ride-sharing service just follow the steps below:
