Wheeling Welcomes Uber!

Just over a year ago, Uber first launched in West Virginia, helping residents in Charleston and Morgantown get access to more transportation options and flexible work opportunities. Today, Uber is excited to announce that the service is now available in Wheeling and throughout all of West Virginia. Uber has opened up access to drivers and riders across all of West Virginia. At first, wait times in these new areas may be longer than usual as Uber works to ensure everyone who needs a ride can get one.

 

How it Works: Driving with Uber

 

  • Set Your Own Schedule

West Virginians can drive with Uber anytime, day or night, 365 days a year. It’s always up to the driver when they want to earn money with Uber

 

·         Earn more at every turn

Trip fares start with a base amount, then increase with time and distance. And when demand is higher than normal, drivers earn more.

 

·         The app leads the way

Drivers just need to tap and go. They’ll get turn-by-turn directions, tools to help them earn more, and 24/7 support.

    ‘ bout time, Wheeling! I believe people will have not only least accidents. And, my hopes, Wheeling persons will have less dui in the area. We’ve got to get the word out, some folks don’t know what Uber is. My personal issue was getting & using the app. Please teach your elders, no more cabs! After that, leave it to Uber!
