What is Uber you may ask?
Well, that is a great question many people asked a couple of years back. So what is it and why is it so popular? Uber is a company developed by some people who thought that the taxi industry was outdated. Uber is an app that incorporates innovative and much smarter ideas than the world has ever seen in this taxi industry. It is cheaper, smarter and benefits every participant.
In 2009 Uber developed a smartphone app, that benefitted casually drivers and passengers.
The service acts as a middle man which links drivers to passengers. To use the app, passengers have to download the app and register. The passengers will then be able to contact drivers and check if any drivers are available.
he drivers are not employees hired by uber, but just casual drivers.
This was a new way of traveling, and it was much smarter, and still is. According to the article “What is Uber and what should I think about the controversies?”, Uber is now available in 440 different cities across six continents.
As told above, we can already conclude Uber has many advantages to offer. It especially benefits the people who are in economical problems and are searching for a little extra earning next to their job.
Uber only requires that you have a valid driver's license, you have at least one year of licensed driving experience, but 3 years if you under 23 years old, and last an eligible 4-door vehicle.
So no application has to be written, which makes driving with uber an option for most people with a driver’s license.
Besides the many advantages of being an Uber driver, do we also meet some disadvantages, For example, the biggest disadvantage is the number of miles you put on your car, which includes in your car’s value being degraded.
Wear and tear inside the car will also become a thing after having customers in and out of the back of your car.
