A new app is giving Uber drivers the chance to make a more comfortable living.
Key points:Uber is looking to expand its business to areas with a growing number of taxi and limo driversThe app, called UberX, is being rolled out in more than a dozen citiesUber says it has a 100% safety record since its launchThe app is available in more states and cities than Uber.
It offers drivers a variety of options, including private cab rides, limo rides and self-driving cars.
But unlike UberX’s other competitors, UberX is not yet available in most major metropolitan areas in Australia.
Uber said it was also looking to add more taxi and private car services, with plans to expand to more cities in the future.
The company said the expansion would allow its drivers to work as independent contractors, with the expectation that drivers would be paid fairly.
It said drivers would receive a regular amount of earnings.
“This is not the same as having a full-time position with the company.
This will allow drivers to focus on improving their skills and making money, while also helping the company achieve its goal of increasing accessibility to its riders,” the company said.
It added the UberX service would not be available in Sydney.
Uber added that the company would provide drivers with financial incentives to help them achieve their goal of becoming self-employed, and that the drivers would not have to work for Uber at all.
The new app was launched in August in Victoria and New South Wales.
It has more than 30,000 drivers and has about 300,000 passengers per day.
The app will be rolled out across Australia in the coming weeks.
