Uber announced it plans to expand its rides platforms to Washington County and southwest Illinois starting Wednesday, October 7.
With this expansion, the company will offer residents access to reliable and affordable transportation options and prospective drivers the ability to flexibly earn extra money on their own schedule.
Powered by Uber’s innovative technology, encouraging shared responsibility, and including guidance from health experts, Uber has implemented new measures designed to help protect the health and safety of everyone who uses the platform.
“We are thrilled to make Uber available throughout the state of Illinois,” said David Shapir, Uber’s General Manager for Illinois. “Whether you need an affordable ride to the grocery store or are looking to earn extra money on your own schedule, all Illinoisians will now have access to the Uber platform.”
Uber’s expansion covers much of southern Illinois, including local counties Washington, Clinton, Bond, Randolph, Jefferson, Marion and Fayette.
