Learn All About Uber Crew

Uber Crew is a new program where drivers and delivery people in your state work directly with decision makers at Uber to help improve the App, collaborate on new products, and improve the overall experience for drivers and delivery people in their area.

Crew Members are drivers and delivery people just like you. Anyone can apply and you get to help choose the Crew Members in your state.



How It Works - Frequently Asked Questions


What is Uber Crew?

+

Last year, Uber committed to changing the way we listen to drivers and delivery people. Uber committed to doing better at acting on your feedback and empowering you with greater representation. Uber Crew is a step in that direction.

Uber Crew is a new program that gives you the chance to choose a driver to collaborate with Uber and improve the transparency into how Uber uses your feedback. As the people who drive and deliver, you know your work better than Uber ever could. That’s why your feedback is so important.

With Crew, you can help select other drivers and delivery people near you to raise issues to Uber’s decision-makers and collaborate with Uber on features and improvements. By participating in Uber Crew, you can help Uber give drivers and delivery people everywhere a better way to make their voices heard.

Crew Members will take an active role in improving the experience for all drivers & delivery people by amplifying Earners’ voices and collaborating with Uber. Chosen by you, a Crew Member is a driver or delivery person that will:
