Need a lift? If you're in the Mid Michigan area, that just got a whole lot easier! According to MLive, Uber has expanded their driving areas to include Jackson, Saginaw, Midland, and Bay City.

So, if you need a ride, all you need to do is download the app onto your phone, set up a pickup point and a drop off destination, then press the button to call a driver, and BOOM! you'll be on your way. It's pretty simple and convenient. You pay for the ride via a payment method that you set up when you make your free account. So when your driver gets there, no need to worry about whether or not you have cash to pay for it, it's all taken care of.

The news that Uber is coming to more areas throughout Mid Michigan is good news not only for people who need a ride, but for people who would like to make some money too. If you're interested in being a driver, find out how to become one here.
