Become an Uber Driver In Cancun, Mexico

 

Uber officially launched in Cancun, Mexico in September, 2016 giving local taxi drivers a run for their money. Driving with Uber is one way to earn additional income.  It affords flexible hours and a chance to make good money on your own schedule. If you are looking for more information on how to become an Uber driver in Cancun, this post is for you.

Become an Uber Driver In Cancun

The ‘Age-Factor’

Before you can drive with Uber in Cancun, you must know that Uber takes its age policy pretty seriously. This age policy varies for different cities. To join Uber as a driver in Cancun, you have to be at least 21 years old. If you meet this requirement, please proceed to fulfil the steps listed below:

Become an Uber Driver

  • Must have a photo (clear headshot)
  • Drivers must provide valid Mexico driver’s license
  • You (driver) must be the holder of the above, or at least a listed driver
  • Ensure the vehicle registration number is listed
  • Documents must clearly show a valid expiration date
  • Drivers must pass a screening process
  • Drivers must have an accepted vehicle (check below for additional info)
  • At some point during registration, you would also have to take your car through vehicle inspection at an Uber-approved auto shop or Uber activation centre in your area
  • Vehicle insurance document (if you already have a car you intend to use)
  • No taxis, government cars or other cars with badges are allowed

 

Note-It is essential to upload very clear pictures (jpg format typically has the least issues) in which all of the numbers and information on the pictures are very visible.  The name on the documents must match your official birth name and the name you provide on the Uber signup page.

 

STEP 2 – Signup

After you have gathered these documents and met the above requirements, you can move to the next step which is to signup online. The documents that you have gathered are what you would have to submit online. You can go here to sign up with our special referral link. This link redirects to the Uber official signup page.

 

STEP 3 – Uber Background Check and On-Boarding Process

Uber will typically take between 2 to 4 weeks to perform their background checks. Specifically, they will take the documents provided by the intending drivers in Step 1, and do the following.

  • A Comprehensive Criminal Background Check
  • Check to see if you have a clean driving record (to be sure that your license has never been revoked for any reason).

Subsequently, you will be tested on all of the general knowledge that Uber drivers are expected to have. You can prepare for this by asking already-employed Uber drivers for advice on what you should know for these tests. It is expected that as an aspiring Uber driver in Cancun, you should have great knowledge of the routes in Cancun without relying a great deal on maps. This knowledge is a must have for every intending Uber driver. After these tests, there will be a few more interviews and some onboarding sessions.

 

STEP 4 – Get an Uber Approved Vehicle

It is important to note that Uber has various services which require different types of vehicles. You should decide on which of the services you are interested in before buying a car (if you do not have one). See the section below on “Selecting an Uber Service” for more information. Your car will be rejected if it has major cosmetic damage or it is salvaged (was involved in a major accident and had to be fixed with parts from other vehicles or rebuilt). There might be some extra requirements (besides the general) depending on the type of Uber service you choose. Your vehicle must be from the year 2008 or newer to become an Uber driver in Cancun.

 

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. For Uber drivers in Cancun, the service available is the non-commercial UberX.

UberX is the mid-tier priced Uber service, and it also gets the most patronage from Uber passengers across the globe for this reason. This is the category I would recommend starting out with.

 

What to Do if Your Vehicle Does Not Fit Uber Requirements

If your personal vehicle does not fit the requirements that are necessary for an Uber vehicle, it’s not a problem. You do not necessarily have to buy a fancy new car – a used car that meets the requirements of your selected service should do. However, many people tend to invest in a new car before driving professionally with Uber in Cancun, Mexico. This isn’t a bad idea if you have the funds. Please see the “Nice to Know” section below for due diligence you should probably carry out if you intend to buy a car specifically for Uber. You also have the option of renting an Uber Car through recommended Uber Rental Partners. You can find out more once you begin the online registration process here: SIGNUP ONLINE.

However, if you wish to use your own smart phone, that is perfectly fine. You can read more on how to download the Uber driver app here

 

Nice to Know

If you want to become an Uber driver in Cancun, Mexico, it is important to know that you will have to bear the cost of car related expenses like fuel, car maintenance, insurance costs, car depreciation, Uber royalties and other maintenance related expenses.

Taxify Taking On Uber In Various Markets

 

Taxify is one of many rideshare companies trying to out-rival Uber in the industry. Despite current setbacks Uber Technologies has experienced, the ridesharing giant continues to remain an industry leader. Uber continues to make giant strides in various markets by introducing new features to encourage patronage.

Uber launched the 180 days of change in June to improve driver experience. The rideshare company also launched in new markets like Dhaka to help ease traffic in the congested city. These actions have been met with rebuttals by other competition rideshare buinsesses. Now, Taxify has expanded its services to Sydney to compete with Uber in the Australian market. As of November 2017, the rideshare company operates in 20 countries and 30 cities world-wide.

Pathao vs Uber: Rideshare In Bangladesh

 

Bangladesh is a densely populated country of over 160 million people making it the most densely populated large country in the world. It is safe to say that commuters will have a hard time in traffic and the country will benefit from rideshare. Rideshare companies aim to reduce the number of cars on the road especially in populous countries where traffic can be nightmarish. Therefore, the launch of rideshare companies like Uber and Pathao will go a long way in easing traffic congestion in Bangladesh.

Uber launched in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh on the 22nd of November, 2016. With presence in over 400 cities worldwide, the congested city of Bangladesh is the next city to experience the revolution that Uber introduces to the transport sector. Uber has teamed up with Bangladesh’s largest mobile operator, Grameenphone to reach Dhaka’s 18 million population.

Uber currently has 3 services operating in Dhaka. They include UberMOTO, UberX and UberPREMIER. UberMOTO is Uber’s motorbike service while UberX is the mid-tier cost affordable Uber service. Uber charges a Base Fare of 30 Tk for the UberMOTO service and a Base Fare of 40 Tk for the UberX service.  Pathao

Passengers can request car rides and get picked up from any location. UberPREMIER launched in 2017 to meet the needs of riders who want to ride in style and plush comfort. This service delivers service in superior quality sedans with professionally trained driver partners. Uber charges a Base Fare of 80 Tk for this service.

 

Pathao, on the other hand provides bike services to passengers in Bangladesh with promises to bring car services to the city of Dhaka soon. Pathao rides are currently available in only Dhaka and Chittagong with goals to expand to other major cities.

How To Use Pathao

  • Download the Pathao App from Google Playstore and iOS App Store
  • Sign up with your mobile number (The app is free to use)
  • Select your pick up location and destination
  • Request for a ride

Please Note

Unlike Uber that allows you cancel rides for free, Pathao will charge you the standard hiring cost of tk. 25

Rates

Passengers are charged tk. 25 for hiring plus tk. 12 per kilometer travelled plus 0.5 paisa per minute

 

Driver Requirements

It is important that all intending drivers have their own bikes.

First present the following documents:

  1. National ID/ Passport/ Driving license (Any one or all)
  2. Registration paper of the motorcycle

For car rides, Pathao will charge Tk 50 as the base fare and Tk 20 as the per kilometre fare. The per minute waiting charge would be Tk 2.5.

Uber in Taiwan Resumes Operation

 

Uber has resumed operations in Taiwan after it was banned for operating illegally. According to Taiwan state officials, Uber in Taiwan was going against the law with its mode of operation. State laws require that all taxi companies have to be home grown or domestically owned and operated.

Uber’s usual mode of operation allowed any qualified driver to sign up to drive for the Uber service. Uber is not a Taiwan company as the company was launched in the United States. The company has since grown with presence in over 600 cities worldwide. Uber in Taiwan

This isn’t the first time Uber has faced opposition in certain cities. In Denmark, the local taxi industry protested against what it termed Uber’s illegal operation in Denmark. The taxi drivers argued that Uber’s rideshare service – POP creates unfair competition because Uber’s drivers and vehicles aren’t required to live up to the same requirements as others in the taxi business. Six Uber drivers in Denmark were found guilty by a Copenhagen court of violating Danish taxi laws and were fined 2,000 to 6,000 Danish crowns ($300-900) each.
In France, Uber’s service UberPOP was quickly banned by the French government due to the unfair competition Uber in France presented regular taxi drivers who were required to undergo formal training. The UberPOP service allowed non-professional drivers drive with Uber, and when they were fined by authorities, Uber stepped in and paid the fines. This strategy adopted by Uber prompted an anti-Uber protest in cities in France that quickly evolved to Guerrilla warfare between regular taxi drivers and Uber drivers in France as taxi drivers flipped over and burnt Uber cars. Also, Uber executives in France were arrested and allegedly arraigned before a court for operating illegal taxis.

To resume operations in Taiwan, “Uber will be partnering with licensed rental car companies to resume serving riders in Taipei..after constructive talks with transportation authorities… We are keen to give rental car partners and their licensed drivers access to more economic opportunities that the Uber app provides”  a post on the company’s website reads.

This simply means that Uber in Taiwan will be partnering with licensed rental companies and all Uber drivers in Taiwan will have to be licensed commercial drivers. This will mean private drivers will not be allowed on the Uber platform. Uber is known for its aggressive stance in dominating markets and we wonder if the company will try to change the current mode of operating in Taiwan.

  • At some point during registration, you would also have to take your car through vehicle inspection at an Uber-approved auto shop or Uber activation centre in your area
  • Vehicle insurance document (if you already have a car you intend to use)
  • You (driver) must be the holder of the above, or at least a listed driver
  • Ensure the vehicle registration number is listed
  • Documents must clearly show a valid expiration date

Note-It is essential to upload very clear pictures (jpg format typically has the least issues) in which all of the numbers and information on the pictures are very visible.  The name on the documents must match your official birth name and the name you provide on the Uber signup page.

STEP 2 – Signup

After you have gathered these documents and met the above requirements, you can move to the next step which is to signup online. The documents that you have gathered are what you would have to submit online. You can go here to sign up with our special referral link. This link redirects to the Uber official signup page.

 

STEP 3 – Uber Background Check and On-Boarding Process

The process is provided by a third-party system called Checkr, which will contact you directly. You can look into the status of your application here: applicant.checkr.com). Typically, it will take between 2 to 4 weeks to perform the background checks. Specifically they will take the documents provided in Step 1 and do the following.

  • A comprehensive criminal background check
  • Check to see if you have a clean driving record (to be sure that your license has never been revoked for any reason).

Subsequently, you will be tested on all of the general knowledge that Uber drivers are expected to have. You can prepare for this by asking already-employed Uber drivers for advice on what you should know for these tests. It is expected that as an aspiring Uber driver in Fayetteville, North Carolina, you should have great knowledge of the routes in Fayetteville without relying a great deal on maps. This knowledge is a must have for every intending Uber driver. After these tests, there will be a few more interviews and some onboarding sessions.

 

STEP 4 – Get an Uber Approved Vehicle

It is important to note that Uber has various services which require different types of vehicles. You should decide on which of the services you are interested in before buying a car (if you do not have one). See the section below on “Selecting an Uber Service” for more information. Your car will be rejected if it has major cosmetic damage or it is salvaged (was involved in a major accident and had to be fixed with parts from other vehicles or rebuilt). There might be some extra requirements (besides the general) depending on the type of Uber service you choose.

Uber Vehicle Minimum Requirement in Fayetteville

  • Model year 2002 or newer
  • 4-door car or minivan
  • Good condition with no cosmetic damage
  • No commercial branding
  • Pass a vehicle inspection(only if you have an out-of-state vehicle)
  • Vehicle Insurance

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. Uber in Fayetteville offers two services namely UberX, and UberXL. UberX and UberXL are the lower level services with more commuters – since they are affordable.

UberX is the mid-tier priced Uber service, and it also gets the most patronage from Uber passengers across the globe for this reason. This is the category I would recommend starting out with. UberXL is the 6 passenger version of UberX. It is dominated by inexpensive but nice vehicles that can carry more passengers than the UberX. You can say it is the larger version of the UberX service. Riders who request this service would typically be picked up in vehicles like these: Honda pilot, Toyota Sienna, Chevrolet Traverse, Dodge Durango, Dodge Gran.

 

What to Do if Your Vehicle Does Not Fit Uber Requirements

If your personal vehicle does not fit the requirements that are necessary for an Uber vehicle, it’s not a problem. You do not necessarily have to buy a fancy new car – a used car that meets the requirements of your selected service should do. However, many people tend to invest in a new car before driving professionally with Uber in Fayetteville. This isn’t a bad idea if you have the funds. Please see the “Nice to Know” section below for due diligence you should probably carry out if you intend to buy a car specifically for Uber. You also have the option of renting an Uber Car through recommended Uber Rental Partners. You can find out more once you begin the online registration process here: SIGNUP ONLINE.

 

STEP 5 – Uber Cell Phone

Once you have completed the preceding steps, you will have an option to receive an Uber-issued cell phone which will have the Uber driver application installed on it to give you access to Uber riders. However, if you wish to use your own smart phone, that is perfectly fine. You can read more on how to download the Uber driver app here

Nice to Know

If you want to drive with Uber in Fayetteville, North Carolina, it is important to know that you will have to bear the cost of car related expenses like fuel, car maintenance, insurance costs, car depreciation, Uber royalties and other maintenance related expenses.

Can You Fail An Uber Driver Background Check?

 

Driving for Uber has many perks; freedom to choose your own schedule, option to be your own boss, dictate your hours, and keep all your earnings minus Uber’s commission. This is the dream job for most people hence, Uber’s continued growing popularity and driver sign-ups. Uber is a pioneer in ridesharing and continues to aggressively take new territories and dominate new markets. In order to make it easy for drivers to drive for Uber, the company simplified the driver sign-up process. Despite this simplicity, all drivers must subject themselves to an Uber driver background check. This part of the sign-up process is non-negotiable according to Uber. Uber driver background checks are carried out by an independent company –Checkr Inc, contracted by Uber to ensure that drivers have acceptable records (if any). Uber Driver Background Check

Uber will typically take up to two weeks to perform their background checks. Specifically they will take the documents the intending Uber driver provides in the signup process and run the following tests:

  • A Criminal History Check
  • A Driving History Check
  • A psychological test

Many have wondered just how exhaustive these background checks are after a couple of Uber drivers have made the news for criminal behavior. A number of rape and assault cases have been brought against various Uber drivers around the world. An India Uber driver was arrested for raping a female passenger in December, of 2014. In 2017, an Uber passenger in Virginia was abducted and sexually assaulted by an Uber driver after he picked her up. In California, an unconscious teenage girl was raped by an Uber driver a few feet from her home and was discovered by concerned relatives who used the tracking feature to locate the Uber vehicle. These cases represent a small percentage of the increasing number of assault cases brought against the ridesharing giant.

This begs the question; can you actually fail an Uber driver background check?

Let’s look at what is actually considered during these checks:

According to Uber, background check includes a Motor Vehicle Record review as well as a criminal background check. You must have the following:

  • At least one year U.S. licensing history (if under 23 years old, must have at least three years licensing history)
  • A valid driver’s license and Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) that shows: No major moving violations, such as DUIs or reckless driving, within the last seven years
  • No more than three minor moving violations in the past three years, such as speeding tickets or failure to obey traffic laws
  • A criminal record that does not include a conviction for a felony, violent crime, or sexual offense within the last seven years, among other things such as a registration on the U.S. Department of Justice National Sex Offender Public website.

If you fall short of any of the above, Uber will not pursue your driver application. Also, Uber conducts these checks annually to see if you’ve collected any driving violations or criminal violations in the previous year. If you have, be sure that your status as an Uber driver will be revoked.

 

Conclusion

For Uber Passengers

It is apparent that Uber can’t control human behavior. We can’t actually guarantee that these tests are as detailed as claimed but Uber can’t be responsible for drivers that decide to go against the law and commit felonies. It is particularly important for passengers to be vigilant during trips and also take advantage of all the Uber app safety features. Share your ride details with loved ones as well.

 

For Uber drivers

It is important to have a clean record and ensure all the details you provided in the sign-up process are correct. Depending on Uber’s policies and agreement with Checkr, it is possible that some non-violent felonies might be overlooked. However, some cities like Massachusetts are enforcing stricter background checks on Uber drivers. You will never know if you can pass or fail an Uber driver background check if you don’t at least apply. To signup, go through the Uber website – using our link: www.uberkit.net/signup.

OLA In India Takes On Uber With OLA Play

 

Last year, Uber’s fierce rival Ola, launched an in-ride entertainment platform called Ola Play in India. The aim of this innovative feature is to make long rides more entertaining and luxurious. Ola partnered with Qualcomm to build interactive devices mounted in cars. This device called Ola Play, boasts touch-screen hardware with two consoles –one for the driver and another for the passenger. Passengers can sync their phones with the device to listen to music and also watch all they want online.

This seems like a response to Uber’s partnership with Spotify that allows passengers play their playlists on Spotify as they travel. Granted, Uber’s innovation isn’t as integrating as Ola’s Ola Play but it seems Uber is not completely off track. It doesn’t seem like this move on the part of Ola is a real game changer as people will always look out for the best price especially in an emerging market like India.

The rideshare company that can offer the basic needs at the most affordable price will surely take the cake. India is a huge market and Uber and Ola are presently fighting a turf war with Ola currently winning in the country. Ola currently controls over 60 percent of the Indian market and growing. Can this success be attributed to the in-ride entertainment? Obviously not.

Ola is a home grown rival while Uber is a global phenomenon. It is only fair that Ola will enjoy more patronage since it launched in Mumbai 3 years before Uber came into the scene.

However, Uber boasts a higher presence globally than Ola and is more concerned in growing it’s footprint across the world. In a show of power, Uber recently launched in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh on the 22nd of November, 2016. |

Ola PlayWith presence in over 400 cities worldwide, the congested city of Bangladesh is the next city to experience the revolution that Uber introduces to the transport sector. Uber has teamed up with Bangladesh’s largest mobile operator, Grameenphone to reach Dhaka’s 18 million population. Unlike in most American cities, Uber will accept cash payments as well as card payments. This is a strategy that Uber initiates in emerging markets in order to reach the percentage of unbanked populace.

Uber will continue to face fierce rivalry from competitors. It’s up to the rideshare giant to devise new and innovative ways to keep customers satisfied.
