Public can learn about network vehicle driver job opportunities at event TONIGHT

Network vehicle driver information session

By - Sep 4th, 2014 11:07 am

Alderman Ashanti Hamilton invites residents to learn about new opportunities to earn income driving their own vehicles and offering rides to Milwaukee’s underserved communities by attending an information session tonight from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

In legislation supported by Alderman Hamilton, the Common Council this summer lifted the cap on the number of public passenger vehicle permits, allowing more taxis and network vehicles to operate in Milwaukee. That legislation took effect this week, creating new job opportunities for residents who want to work for-hire carrying passengers.

“Driving for a company like Lyft is a great way to earn income working hours that you get to choose,” Alderman Hamilton said. “This business model will also offer new transportation options in areas that have long been underserved by cab service.”

Alderman Hamilton said eligible drivers must be 21 or older, have an iPhone or Android smartphone and own a four-door car, model year 2000 or newer. Along with Ralph Hollmon of the Milwaukee Urban League, Alderman Hamilton invites residents to attend tonight’s information session to learn more. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

What: Network vehicle driver information session

When: TONIGHT, September 4 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Where: New Hope Missionary Baptist Church 2433 W. Roosevelt Dr.
