The drivers who keep Utah moving never cease to amaze and inspire us. Since Uber’s launch in Utah just over one year ago, driver-partners have traveled more than 2.6 million miles on the Uber platform. With the distance traveled come the moving stories of what the extra money means to them, and their families. From busy moms to small business owners to college students, every story is different.
As Uber grows in Utah, we continually expand our service area, and rely on local drivers to drive that growth. We recently had the pleasure of meeting one of the driver-partners who drives in Provo. Meet Sabrina: A busy mother of 2 and Uber driver-partner. We sat down with Sabrina at Pizzeria Seven Twelve, just outside of Provo, to learn about what Uber means to her, her family, and the Provo community. Here’s her story:
Why did you choose to partner with Uber?
“I started driving as a way to get out of the house. My husband told me about it. I’m a people person; I love talking to people. Uber is perfect for that.”
What do you do outside of Uber?
“I’m a full time mom. My husband watches the kids while I drive. I also like going on adventures and traveling, and I love movies! Before I had kids, I probably saw every movie that came out in theaters.”
How does Uber help you accomplish your goals?
“It helps me earn extra money for my family. It helps pay the bills and buy groceries. That makes me feel important, makes me feel like I’m contributing.”
What do you think about Uber expanding into Provo?
“I think it’s REALLY fantastic that Uber is expanding to Provo. People can use Uber to go shopping, to get to the airport, and to travel to Salt Lake. I think it could become a huge thing here.”
“It’s the little things. Uber allows me to put my daughter in dance class and buy my husband a present using my own money.” – Sabrina, Uber Partner in Provo, UT
