Kia Offers Uber Driver Incentives
Kia offers Uber drivers incentives of up to $2500 on 2016 Kia models. Conceived in 2008, Uber, a ride-sharing app and service operates in 394 cities worldwide and reports over 1 billion connections for “riders, drivers and cities”.
Uber and other ride-sharing services have transformed transportation using popular technologies including social networks, smartphones and GPS navigation devices. Using an app, Uber connects drivers and riders in close proximity at about half the cost of a standard taxi. In the past year, taxi in the U.S. fell from 52% to 32% while Uber use rose from 9%-29% among business travelers.
Uber drivers set their own schedule; over half of its drivers work less than 10 hours a week. Uber offers an alternative to existing transit services and often provides access beyond bus routes and taxi service areas.
The Uber concept meshes well with Kia’s commitment to technology, green business and driver safety. Locally, Uber has made Charleston more accessible, helped to alleviate traffic and parking congestion downtown and reduce drunk driving.
To promote the Uber concept, Kia Country of Charleston offers an additional $500, in addition to the $2000 Kia incentive, to qualifying Charleston area buyers.
