Uber Pro now available to all qualified Orange County drivers

Less than a year ago, we launched Uber Pro as a pilot in eight cities, and expanded it to over thirty U.S. cities and internationally to countries like Australia, India, Mexico, and New Zealand. Today, we’re taking another big step: recognizing drivers for their quality and commitment by bringing our one-of-a-kind program to every U.S. city in which Uber operates.

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.

Millions of drivers around the world choose Uber’s platform to access and participate in independent work. They’ve shared how they earn on the side or to support their families. In other cases, they drive to pursue their long-term ambitions. To support them, Uber Pro includes 100% tuition coverage at Arizona State University toward a four-year degree or Continuing & Professional Education courses in Entrepreneurship and English language learning–now available to 250,000 eligible U.S. Gold, Diamond, and Platinum-status drivers (or their family members) and counting.

Today’s expansion also follows additional Uber Pro initiatives to reward eligible drivers for their quality and commitment. We recently launched our Summer of Rewards program, which gives eligible drivers extra cash back when they use their Uber Visa Debit Card to buy gas.

We also expanded our partnership with Fair, who is offering Fair Credits to eligible Uber Pro drivers that can be applied to the cost of a Fair car payment. Fair Credit amounts increase based on the driver’s Uber Pro tier: Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. More details can be found here.

By providing Uber Pro’s rewards to more drivers, we’re committed to helping them make progress toward their goals–on and off the road.

Requires completion of a minimum number of trips and maintaining eligibility status.

Fair Credits are non-transferrable and not redeemable for cash. Fair is operating in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Connecticut, Dallas, Denver, Hampton Roads, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Jersey, New York, Northern Virginia, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Richmond, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Tampa and West Palm Beach.

** Driver partners must have completed 3,000 lifetime trips and have Gold, Platinum or Diamond status to be eligible for 100% tuition coverage. Eligible family members are a spouse or domestic partner, child, sibling, parent or legal guardian, or dependent. Students are required to pay applicable income taxes on the tuition coverage, as well as the costs of books and computer or technology services. Tuition coverage is provided after scholarships or other grants and is only valid for certain online classes, up to a maximum 135 credits for ASU Online (i.e. degree programs) and $3,000 for Continuing Professional Education, ESL and Earned Admission. Maximums do no reset if driver transfers coverage to an eligible family member or if student switches between programs. Enrollment in ASU Online depends on enrollee gaining admission and admission decisions are made in ASU’s sole discretion. Drivers remain eligible for this reward for as long as they maintain Uber Pro Gold, Platinum or Diamond status, and, as long as they have already enrolled in classes, for an additional 3 month grace period if their Uber Pro status falls to Partner level. Additional limitations apply. For complete terms and conditions, visit [uber.com/pro/terms].
