    I just started this week. I am disabled.it's very hard to earn money because of my condition..so this format puts me in charge of what i make and how much i can physically do...i hv always been very successful in sales. Working with the public is a natural. I avoid neg. And concentrate on the positive!!

    I just started driving with Lyft because I got a huge signup bonus! I know some of you discouraged me from signing up but it seems to be worth it so far. Hopefully other drivers don't sign up after me so rates dump

    hey Amy. Even I am having similar problems, let me know if you come across a better way to drive for Uber or Lyft. The earning rates on both of these platforms are daunting and I don't wanna be stuck with one of the 2 by enrolling into their lease program. Rather I would like to have flexibility.

    Most cities in the US are well under$1/mile. Signup bonus' is the uber bait. When they've reeled in enough fish, their true colors come to life. Detroit's rates are .30/mile, uber will not hesitate to do the same to other cities if the drivers let them. Keep in mind that "booking fees" are as high $3 in some cities. The driver does not get any of that.

    Recently for extra money, but then again kinda become main job here in jakarta, since its good money making,

    but for me personally... Just like driving and rolling through out the city day and night, this city of mine is crazy as hell tho, so its like entertainment when they enter the back seat, and you can learn a whole more a lot all of their behavior.

    But i chose uber system, cause its teach us not to pick client, far or close distance small change-or big money ride, doesn't matter, just accept it, just don't count trip per trip, never look at the earning tabs, just accept and drive, then you'll know you're makin a lot more.

    Cheers.

    I drive for Uber to supplement my income and meet new people. I'm a CPA and have picked up many individual tax returns just from quick conversations with riders! Although I do not drive January - April 15th, Uber has brought me many clients during the other months.
