The Gracious Girls to Uber: Conversations starters with your driver

Posted: Updated:

Uber drivers are interesting people. Many times they are driving to support a family, get a business off the ground or even simply as a hobby. They are very interesting people and great conversationalists.

So don’t be shy! Drivers do what they do because they like people and enjoy sharing their expertise on the city and the reasons behind why they drive. Here are a few conversation starters to use during your ride.

Tell me about…

  • new fun Portland hot spots?
  • what inspired you to start driving Uber?
  • the hobbies do you enjoy when you’re not driving?
  • most commonly visited Portland restaurants?
  • favorite Portland neighborhood to explore.

It turns out that Uber’s driver-partners are just like you, so pop by Fox 12 Oregon Facebook page and tell us about your experience the next time you take a trip!

If you haven’t taken your first Uber Portland visit yet, go to and use the promo code GOODDAYOR for $20 off your first ride!!!
