How Do Uber Drivers Get Paid?
Good question. The answer is, every week people who drive get wired 75% to 80% of their earnings wired to their bank account. For drivers like myself who has qualified for the GOBank Uber debit card, we can get paid immediately. We simply push our earnings to the card from our account.
The riders pay Uber by using a cashless installment system. When you sign up for an Uber account you just put a credit card, debit card or Paypal account on file. That’s it. Simple.
Getting an Uber ride in Columbus will be farely cheap. The cost will be low because unlike Atlanta the city is small. 90% of the time you can get anywhere in Columbus within 10-15 min.
I lived in Columbus from 1987 until 2001. I graduated from Spencer high school. Went on to work for Aflac in the tower off Wynnton Road and stayed right across the street in Overlook Crossing Apartments.
It Will Be Fun To Be A Columbus Georgia Uber Driver
I can only imagine how good Uber will be in Columbus. Public transportation is horrible in C-town. The Metra bus routes and schedules are limited to say the least.
There are so many people who will benefit from Uber coming to this city. This includes the corporate workers of Aflac and TSYS (Total Systems). CB&T, St. Francis Hospital and Bluecross Blueshield employees will surely love getting rides too.
The monster of the workforce is Fort Benning though. There are about 40,000 people work work on post and I can imagine how crazy it would be to give half of that force a ride. I wonder if the military will be able to hail Uber cars on post.
Soldiers come off post to party and shop in Columbus at places like Peathtree Mall everyday. The Columbus Park Crossing Strip Mall is definitely a hot spot. These kind of trips would be a crazy amount of money for drivers on a daily basis.
Industrial workers are important to Columbus’s community too. Pratt & Whitney, Mutec, Panasonic, Goody’s and Tom’s Foods workers have reliable transportation now. It’s will be very cheap to call an UberX to get to work everyday.
Getting to and from the main roads will be a cinch from here on out. Let’s take a look at the streets many drivers will be on.
Top 11 Roads in Columbus Georgia

If you didn’t hear about Uber coming to Columbus from a friend on Facebook or Twitter you missed out. This was the first line of social awareness before WTVM Channel 9 News or Foxy 105 produced a news segment. Even the Ledger-Enquirer was late on this information.
Michael Soul, Barbara Gauthier and Jason Dennis can’t beat social media.
Ideas on where to take an Uber in Columbus
Get ready to travel without worrying about TAXI fares being high. Forget the problem of NOT having a car. Columbus is about to get a whole lot cooler.
Teachers and students of the Muscogee County School District will be set. Taking a quick ride to the Riverwalk for the Jazz Fest or brisk walk is easy now. Columbus State University classes will be much easier to take for students without vehicles.
Cruising to Calloway Gardens is a cinch and taking in a movie at Carmike Cinemas is a breeze. Not to mention when you have had one too many beers at a club downtown you can just call an Uber to get home safe.
However, if you didn’t avoid getting that DUI you have a valid option. Getting down to the Columbus Consolidated Government building will be easy.
I’m excited for Uber drivers in Columbus, Georgia. I am equally happy about car riders that will be able to get where they need to be with a push of a button.
The next time my Spencer Greenwaves play the Carver Tigers, I will call an Uber. I’ll be rolling to get to the A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium in an UberX for sure. ( News Source via Uber.com)
