For drivers, is Uber better than Lyft in SF?

I'm currently only a Lyft driver, but have been extremely disappointed with the lack of ride requests and low fares I'm getting. It seems like there's more Uber drivers on the road based on the number of placards I see, so I would assume there's more Uber passengers as well.

For drivers that are on both platforms, do you feel that Uber is better that Lyft in SF?

Note, I already have by friend's invite code, but wanted to get more opinions out there.

Uber is by far busier than Lyft (especially in SF), but when Lyft is surging the payout is much more than Uber's surging. Unfortunately, Uber takes additional fees out of your earnings like an additional $1 from each ride, and an additional $3.35 from SFO requests...it adds up. If Lyft was able to match the number of requests I get with Uber, I wouldn't even bother driving for Uber.
