What Do You Like About Working There?

The app was easy to understand and use. I was able to work my own hours. As a private contractor, I had the freedom to dress as I wanted. I was my own boss... Show More

What DON'T You Like About Working There?

My vehicle isn't fuel efficient. Rising gas prices put a strain on my profits. There were times when business was incredibly slow. Large events created a competitive environment which caused a decline in business. Traffic also caused issues... Show More

Can you perhaps explain why anyone thinks driving for Uber or Lyft is profitable? If you are actually setting aside money for the wear and tear on your car, maintenance/repairs and offsetting the devaluation of having high miles, you don't make minimum wage from what I can tell. Do people not understand that they're just mortgaging their cars but the bill will come due, someday?

Well, you probably have a preconceived notion based on no math, so I doubt you will be open to silly old math. I get $1.30/mile minimum. The added mileage on the vehicle works out to about $0.0257/mile depreciation. Tires cost about $0.016/mile. Oil changes cost about $0.006/mile. Gas in my area for my vehicle is about $0.16/mile. That adds up to about $0.23/mile. Round up and I get about $1/mile. That's if I take basic XL fares only. When surge pricing is in effect or when I get a Select fare I earn more. Will I make a living? No. Do I profit an extra $1,500 per month in a part time gig doing something reletively stress-free that I enjoy? Yes. Is your statement accurate? Not at all.

Do the guys at your full time job know about your driving business? What is their reaction like?

They do not. I avoid my work area. I have a fear that I will pick up one of my bosses.
October 13, 2017 on Reddit

Farthest youve driven for a customer?

An about 100 mile ride. I loved it. Huge payday for me. The misconception is that, if you take the driver on a long ride then they're hosed after they drop you off. Realistically, you get paid so well on those long rides that, on a two hour ride, you are getting paid enough to make up for the fact that you have to drive an hour or two back into the city. This was a late-night ride, so it took me about an hour and a half each way, and I made about $75 on the ride, so I wasn't complaining much.
October 11, 2017 on Reddit

which do you make more money with?

If I only drive for one company during a week, I make more with Lyft than Uber usually due to their weekly promotions. But per ride they pay about the same, and because I run both apps simultaneously I usually don't qualify for the big "drive 50 rides in a week and get a bonus" promotions.
October 11, 2017 on Reddit

What is your average weekly salary? Do you have enough money to have a little freedoms when it comes to food and activities, or are you strapped for cash more times than not?

I make around $20-25/hour, so my weekly income is only really limited by how much I work. I drive Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights religiously from about 6pm to 3am, then throw a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday in there depending on what I'm feeling, which usually pulls in about $700-ish a week. I'm not super strapped for cash, but I'm not getting ready to move out of my low-rent apartment any time soon either.

Whats the most sexual thing thats ever happened in your backseat? Also, have you ever had any celebs? If so, who?

I've had some people make out in my backseat. I tried not to pay it much attention but they were not particularly discrete. I haven't had any major celebs, but I did have the sound mixer for Baby Driver a while after its release, which led to some interesting conversations regarding the choreography of the film to the score.
