Communities in Regional NSW will now be able to access the ride-sharing service Uber.
Uber is a ride-sharing service where users arrange for rides and pay via a mobile app. Locals and tourists will benefit from the availability of Uber across regional NSW, ensuring ease of access to businesses, events and attractions. Residents can apply to be a driver for Uber as a way to bring in extra money. The service can provide a safe way for people to avoid drink-driving, as has been seen in areas currently offering Uber. The expansion will roll out just before the Easter long weekend in April.
