"I love the flexibility of being an Uber Driver! I'm a retired 60 year old and the extra money I earn providing rides to the public helps me maintain a happy standard of living. Also, I enjoy chatting with my customers and driving around our beautiful city, Jacksonville. Customers have stated to me they prefer Uber over a taxi because it is affordable and the drivers are pleasant and professional. The rideshare companies are saving lives by providing intoxicated patrons at bars a safe ride home. "
