With coverage over 900 cities, it's quite obvious why Uber is one of the most popular (and user-friendly) ride-hailing services available. There are however remote areas that do not fall within an Uber route, and this can become an issue when you would like to drive in another city.
Are there too many Uber drivers in your city or are moving to a new city? Don't know how to change your profile to drive in another city? This article will show you how to switch between cities as a driver for Uber.
Note: Uber does not allow temporary city changes. Changes to your driver profile can take up to 14 days to take effect.
You can also call Uber's helpdesk if you need assistance with your driver profile.

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Uber in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day.
