Become an Uber Driver with UberMILITARY

Posted by jeenniwill on February 18th, 2017

Uber services are designed to reach people in different sections of a community. The UberASSIST was created for people with disabilities, UberFAMILY for your relatives and even the UberPOOL that helps people save a little more. The Uber business model seeks to cater for all types of passengers and even intending drivers. The UberMILITARY like all the above mentioned services was created in 2014 to give military vets and their relatives a chance to earn extra income.


The UberMILITARY service was put in place to honour the citizens’ heroes – the special men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving and protecting the lives of the citizens. The service provides service members, veterans, and military spouses an opportunity to earn a flexible income by becoming an Uber partner. Since the service launched 2 years ago, Uber has been thrilled by the stories of many service members who have dedicated their whole life to public service and protection of the people. Uber said in a statement released on Uber newsroom that: “Over the past 18 months, we’ve crisscrossed the country to hear the stories of service members and veterans. Everywhere we go, they tell us that they want opportunities to make money on their own terms and set their own schedules. We’re thrilled to be able to give more service members and veterans the on-demand work opportunities they’ve been asking for.”

Uber also recently announced that they have successfully added 50,000 members of the military community to the list of drivers under this service. To commemorate their most recent achievement, Uber donated M on behalf of the UberMILITARY Advisory Board, to various organizations that support veterans and military families. These organizations include: the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) and Homes for our Troops.

What Does This Service Entail?

The service was created to help members of the military community get access to reliable secondary income. Extra efforts like savings program are also being made by Uber to ensure that life is as easy as it can be for the heroes of the nation.

Also, Uber recently rolled out a feature on the Uber app that lets riders know that they are being driven by an UberMILITARY driver. This way, Uber passengers can show their appreciation and say "Thank you for your service" to the vets or their relatives.

This move is huge gesture that reminds everyone to be appreciative of all that the military does to keep the world safe. Also, UberMILITARY will help vets and their relatives feel appreciated.
