Interesting, I wonder if us (drivers) will be able to tell if someone is using a voucher. Has anyone else seen this?


Companies can create customized Voucher campaigns and programs within a specified budget, set pick-up and drop-off locations, and an established time for an offer. All details can be tailored to an event, promotion or service. Businesses can send vouchers to their customers through email, social media and mobile messaging. 

Companies offering vouchers only pay for the rides redeemed under a campaign, plus any applicable administrative fees. When a rider redeems a Voucher, it is added automatically into the Payment section of the rider’s Uber app until it expires. Customers who receive a Voucher can apply it directly to their existing Uber account or will be prompted to download the app to redeem the discounted trip. A dedicated dashboard shows businesses how many Vouchers are redeemed and allows them to export anonymized trip information streamline reporting and billing.

    I dont get how they will buy these in bulk? Is Uber giving them a discount? Doesn't Uber rides depend on time of day, traffic, etc?

    I don't see this really impacting drivers, it is really only a beneficial tool for business who want to make transportation options easier on their employees or clients.

    I wish my company would do this. How sweet would it be to have free Uber rides.

    I'm sure we won't even notice. I wouldn't sweat it.
