Neither did I. I thought all Uber drivers were individuals using their own cars?
Some are, but many, especially uber black, are the car hire companies turning the uber box on when between hire jobs. Like taxi's, the companies that own these cars like to have them running 24/7, rotating drivers as required.

Funny circumstance at melbourne airport, I booked an uber on the app and watched on the app has he drove past and out of the airport. I called him, and pointed out he hadn't picked me up. "Bugger, I'll do a u turn" was the response.
