The General manger of Uber Western Canada, Ramit Kar, has announced the opening of a new Uber office and the launch of UberSelect in Calgary, Alberta.
The new Uber office, which goes by the name of Green Light Hub, will allow Uber staff to better serve the residents of Calgary. According to the Uber press release there is an ever growing number of Calgarians who are looking to partner with Uber
“I’m very pleased today to announce the official opening of a new Uber office to better serve Calgarians looking to earn a flexible income as drivers-partners,” says Kar. “Furthermore, we are happy to start offering UberSelect services to Calgarians looking for a luxury ride at an affordable price.”
Uber considers UberSelect services to be above UberX but below Uber Black. To be an UberSelect driver you have to have a vehicle newer than 2007, five working seatbelts, the car has to be a high-end sedan or a luxury SUV and have leather, or vegan leather seats.
UberSelect is for those who want to have a fun night out but don’t want to break the bank, says the Uber press release.
