There is now a certified Uber driver in the Tri-Cities and if drivers are willing to comply with city licenses there could be even more to come.

Uber is basically your "personal" taxi service. Forget about the hassle of having to call for or hail a taxi cab! To call for an Uber ride you simply download the app to your smart phone, create an account, enter your destination, and wait for your car to arrive.

The problem is Kennewick city officials say there should be no Uber drivers in the area because no one is licensed at this time.

In order to drive an Uber in this area you would need to have: a business license, chauffeur license, a background check, and more!

Could Uber be the "next big thing" to hit the Tri Cities?
