Drivers deserve a voice.

We are an association of drivers for various app-based companies that promotes fairness, justice, and transparency in Seattle's personal transportation industry.


We Protect Drivers' Rights

Drivers deserve the rights that other workers in our economy have. We fight to give drivers a voice on the job so that they have the same protections as everyone else.


We Build Driver Unity

We bring drivers together to give them a collective voice. Transportation companies have seen huge growth in recent years. By building driver unity we can ensure that everyone is able to share in the prosperity.


We Promote Safety

We seek to improve safety and reliability by creating a level playing field for all drivers and ensuring a high-quality workforce.


We Raise Standards

Drivers deserve a level playing field. By setting high standards for drivers we ensure a safe, reliable transportation network.


We Improve Service

Improving driver's lives will improve the transportation service they provide our communities.


Victory in Seattle

On December 14, 2015 Seattle made history by extending collective bargaining rights to drivers in the for-hire industry. Under this new initiative drivers will be able to bargain over wages and working conditions. The pressure put on by ABDA members and our work highlighting the need for change was instrumental to passing this historic law.
