Rhinelander's Only Uber/Lyft DriverSubmitted: 01/02/2019
Story By Nikolaus Koch

RHINELANDER - More than 60 million people use Uber around America, but it might surprise you that you can find one in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Rhinelander's Daniel Bushor is the only Uber and Lyft driver in the Northwoods.

He says that he may not get that many customers, for now, but he just enjoys getting to help people when they need it.

"Meeting new people, helping them, and keeping them safe...if they can't drive, then I'll drive for them."

Bushor says the most rides he's given so far happened on New Year's Eve when he safely delivered 11 people to their destinations.
