2023-02-06T09:32:14.132Z


The company brought 'Uber Moto' to the country and is looking for motorcyclists who want to earn money by driving people. Areas enabled and requirements.


Those who have a

motorcycle

now have a new way to earn money with the vehicle: become

Uber drivers

and spend time

taking passengers

from one point of the city to another, just as tens of thousands of motorists do.

The novelty is due to the fact that the well-known mobility platform, present since 2016 in Argentina, decided to activate its "

Uber Moto

" service in the country for the first time.

For now, only for

Greater Buenos Aires

.

Months ago, the Chinese app DiDi had taken the same step.

In a statement, Uber confirmed that passengers, when requesting a trip in the application,

can now choose

whether they prefer to be picked up by

a car or a motorcycle

, the latter option being up to 

40% cheaper

.

What Uber also launched, simultaneously, is a

call for motorcyclists

interested in earning money 

by making the motorcycle transfers

 that people request, always with the possibility of deciding which days to work, for how long, in which areas and which trips to accept.

"This option offers

an economic opportunity

to those who have a motorcycle and seek to generate earnings in a

flexible and independent

way through the Uber app," the company highlighted.

There they also reported, before

Clarín

's consultation , all the details of the proposal: from who can sign up and what vehicle they need, to

how much they will be able to earn

, how they will collect the money and what protection they will have in the event of eventual road accidents or acts of insecurity.
