Uber welcomes taxi drivers to uberX

Uber is committed to creating a fair, safe and transparent platform for all drivers



$4,000 net for each of your first 3 months

If you work 50 hours per week, we guarantee you take home $20/hour (post Uber fees) in your first three months – that’s $4,000! We’re confident you will earn more than $4,000, but if you don’t we’ll pay the difference.

If you choose to work fewer than 50 hours in a week, we will guarantee hourly take-home earnings for your first three months at a rate of $20 per hour, with the same conditions, for the hours you drive.

In order to qualify for these guarantees, drivers will need to meet standard and fair conditions that are in place to protect a good rider experience (pass Uber’s criminal and MVR screening screen, maintain a driver rating above 4.5, complete 2 trips / hour, not engage in fraud, and accept and complete 90% of requests from the Uber platform)

Uber Canada has purchased a new provincially-approved insurance policy from Intact Financial. Every ridesharing ride is covered by this policy. 

You do not need to purchase commercial insurance to meet the city’s requirement for ridesharing--you are only required to have your own private insurance.
