    Advice worth driving lyft/uber rental car?

    In the city of Detroit would it be worth getting the rental car program and drive for the company. Wouldn't I essentially be paying for the car fee instead of getting paid? If someone could go a little in depth with how I would have to balance it out that would help. Thanks.
