To calculate your hourly utilization rate take the number of hours spent giving rides and divide by the number of hours online, multiply that by 100.

For example, 40 hours online with 20 of those hours actually spent giving rides yields a 50% utilization rate.

20/40=.50*100=50%

Note: You have to manually gather the amount of time spent actually driving pax around, the number is not readily available from the app or website.

Mileage utilization is much easier to calculate, simply divide your miles driven for Uber for the week by the total number of miles driven altogether, multiply by 100.

For example, you drove pax around for a total of 300 miles, you tracked your mileage from Monday to Sunday and came up with 450 miles. Divide 300 by 450 and you get 0.666 multiply by 100 and you had a 66.6% utilization rate on mileage.

300/450=0.666×100=66.6%

So, now you have those numbers, so what good are they?

Your Hourly Utilization Rate can help you determine your actual hourly wage. Being online for Uber doesn't mean you are actually earning money during that time. You are only actually 'working' for Uber when pax are onboard.
