Meet Bob Caldwell. Bob recently stopped by UZURV’s headquarters in Richmond, Virginia to learn more about our reservation service app and how to grow his on-demand rideshare business with us. Driving for both Uber and Lyft for over a year and a half, he was interested to find out more about building a driver profile with UZURV.
To our delight, he is the friendly face behind a local Richmond icon – coined “Bob the Singing Uber Driver.” We had the pleasure to learn a little bit more about what inspires him to share his incredible singing voice with passengers, and why riders love having Bob as their driver.
His previous singing career lasted over 40 years, singing in a Barber Shop Quartet. But the song he chooses to sing acapella for his riders is a special one, near and dear to his heart.
“I sing a short, sweet song about my wife, who was a sweetheart of Sigma Chi at University of Richmond”, said Bob.
With a smile on his face, he shared his first “validation story” of when a rider excitedly referred to him as “Bob the Singing Uber Driver” that she had heard of before.
“You’re Bob?! I can’t believe we got you! How can we request you as our driver again?!”
Hushing her friends to listen to their driver sing, Bob serenaded his passengers with his sweet love song dedicated to his wife. At the end of the trip, he was unexpectedly rewarded with his first ever tip of over $30.
With many more stories just like these, he has offered a level of personal service and reliability that his riders love! The relationships he has made with passengers has grown, even being asked to sing in a rider’s wedding.
With UZURV, passengers now have the ability to add Bob to their “Favorite Drivers” list, and request him again and again! Thanks for sharing your singing voice with us, Bob! We look forward to continuing to help grow your rideshare business with UZURV!
