As mentioned in previous posts, it is generally recommended to start with the UberX platform to save on the initial start-up costs. However if you already own an eligible XL, COMFORT or PREMIER vehicle, then you also have to option of driving on one of those platforms in addition to the UberX platform.
Many Uber drivers choose to purchase or lease an eligible XL, COMFORT or PREMIER vehicle so that they can drive on more than one Uber platform, thus potentially increasing their earning capacity.
You can find out more about purchasing or leasing vehicles by visiting the Uber Marketplace.
