It is official. UBER has finally got the "green light" to begin ride sharing in Montana next month. As someone who has worked in the bar industry in Montana, I have seen first hand how the lack of cabs can lead to people making poor decisions. With UBER, we should hopefully see a drastic drop in the amount of DUIs issued in the state, as well as the amount of alcohol related crashes in Big Sky Country.

According to a recent article in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle,

Uber was approved to operate by the state’s Public Service Commission in December, after Senate Bill 396 — which revised the state’s motor carrier laws — passed the Legislature last May. More than 100 Gallatin Valley residents have since signed up to drive for the $62 billion company.

UBER drivers must be licensed drivers and apply to be a UBER driver. If you would like more info on how you can sign up to make some extra money driving with UBER, click here.
