Been driving Lyft for 3 months - joining Uber today


Well-Known Member
The time has come. Lyft just isn't busy enough in the city right now. I only do this very part time and I'm not looking to make a fortune by any means but Lyft seems dead right now.

What do I need to know about joining Uber?

Lyft is more popular with the college crowd. It will pick up in September. You'll see more pool rides than line rides. Personally I only accept pool rides during a surge. Uber doesn't penalize you for low acceptance rates, but they do if you accept and then cancel on the pax.
You'll be lucky to make $2 per shift in tips with Uber. Other than that, it's all the same.
