Uber has arrived in Newcastle
Always fascinated by the popularity of Uber, the app that connects driver-partners with riders, Bryce Hoffman saw an opportunity to bring the transportation application to Newcastle.
Known for riding his bicycle to work, the Newcastle High School teacher’s involvement with Uber seems a bit counterintuitive at first, yet his reasoning for bringing the service to Newcastle is simple. Uber helps meet both the needs of the community and his own individual goals, Hoffman said.
“When people need rides, they won’t actually call because they think of it as an inconvenience to the person,” Hoffman said. “I really just want to help out if I can, and I feel like people will be more willing to do it if they are paying someone for the ride.”
