Why Should You be a Uride Driver?
Because we’re anticipating that the rest of the year will break records in ridesharing history. COVID restrictions are being lifted so the Uride demand is higher than ever before.
What’s in it for you? Uride is offering driver promotions across several cities and is even doing driver giveaways every Friday such as gas cards and free groceries.
Uride was founded upon the prevention of drunk driving; we believe that everyone deserves a fun night out and a safe ride home.
We also see the importance of helping our community by supporting different charities and doing good deeds. At Uride, we’ve helped the below charities and are committed to growing that list!
- Humane Society
- Shelter Houses across Canada
- Donated free groceries and free gas
- Rainbow Collective of Thunder Bay
- Indigenous Friendship Centers across Ontario

How it works
Frequently Asked Questions
In general, the vehicle must be able to pass a Safety check. This may vary from province to province. Most provinces’ requirements state the vehicle model must not be older than 10 years. Further in depth requirements can be found on your city’s landing page, or by creating an application and speaking to our recruitment team!
Our recruitment team will collect all your documents including pictures of the vehicle to keep on hand, securely stored on our servers. We also run a background check and request driver abstracts on behalf of the driver!
Safety remains at the core of Uride’s operations. Originally created as a solution to impaired driving in Thunder Bay, Uride maintains that same goal within our overall goal of providing quick, reliable and affordable transportation to all markets. We have a zero tolerance policy for illegal activity on the platform. We aim to rewrite the narrative around ridesharing. We are part of the community, serving the community.
In order to drive, you do need your own car.
This may vary depending on several variables. How long you take to submit photo documents (Insurance, ownership, odometer etc) and then each city has licencing requirements as well. Generally, we’re able to get drivers on the road within 3-5 business days.
Yes! Uride never takes any of your hard-earned tips.
This depends on how much you wish to drive! You can earn as much as you want, with an average of $25/hr for drivers. Payments are sent weekly, through the Plooto platform. Deposits are generally made on Thursdays.
If you have a social and outgoing personality, you’ll enjoy meeting new riders and exploring the city. Uride is a platform that allows you to connect with people from all over. Who knows, maybe you’ll discover your next favourite artist or restaurant that you’ve never heard of before.
If you’re more of an introvert, no worries! This is actually a good thing because you’re in control of the conversation. This job also allows you to have downtime. You’ll get your much needed alone time when cruising through the city between pickups.
If you’re on CERB, you can still make up to $1,000 and not lose your benefits. It’s a win-win!
