Featured Octopus Drivers: Fall 2019

Featured Drivers

Play Octopus is an amazing group of passionate rideshare drivers, and we are proud to know so many of you! Today, we are highlighting drivers in the Octopus community who have not only clocked a huge amount of hours with their Octopus tablet, but have also embraced the entire community by spreading the word about Octopus, showing up for events and hosting meetups, giving advice to other drivers, and much more! We appreciate ALL of you and hopefully you’ve noticed the badges we awarded last week, but we wanted to give a handful of shout-outs today.

Check out the Fall Featured Drivers categories below to see who made the list:
