Uber in the Boro

Ozzie Bunbury

Uber has made it to Statesboro and the greater Savannah-Hilton Head area!

· What is Uber: 

A tech company started in San Francisco. Founded in 2009, Uber Technologies Inc. revolutionized an industry. Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp created an app, originally known as “Ubercab” to “allow consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request which is then routed to Uber drivers who use their own cars.”

· Benefits? 

Reliable. It’s a private taxi service with the comfortability of a personal car. Cashless transaction. Easy to split cab fare.

· Want to be apart of it?

If you have your own car you can. Uber drivers are independent contractors with the company. You set your own hours. You set where you go and who you pick up. 

Uber is expanding globally quite quickly. Within 6 years of business operation the company has an estimated net worth of $50 billion. Expanding to Statesboro just opened up a market of over 20,000 more students. If you are interested in an entertaining job opportunity, Uber might just be worth looking into.
