Generally I only drive a couple of hours at night these days - when it's non-stop busy and a good chance of 'tags" for anywhere from $3-$9... and the rides are just going around the block. You can do that in a city. Not so much in a suburb or in Budunk, ND.I've driven a Prius and yes, they have a good amount of torque due to the electric motor. They're not as plain-Jane as some compact cars.
I can easily see why they're fleet cars. Toyota reliability with great gas mileage. Kind of a no brainer. If my career was in Uber then it would be my top choice, assuming I wasn't interested in the higher trim services.
You make $100 in 2-3 hours? Hmmm. You must be in a REALLY good market. $50-$33 an hour.
