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.
