Uber Drivers are gig-economy workers who drive patrons (or ride-share riders) from Point A to Point B. Uber Drivers pick up patrons who are using the Uber phone application and are requesting rides. An Uber Driver picks up these patrons and riders, ensures their safety, and drops them off at their desired locations. Both the rider and the Uber Driver exchange compensation through the Uber mobile application as a result of the ride.
