I recently started driving for UberX in the Raleigh area. Thought I'd join the community to get some pointers. I'm making enough money to justify driving, I like the flexibility. I'm a mid-forties mom to 4 (two graduated, two still at home) and like that I can use Uber to make money off of trips in already making into Raleigh, during time I normally would have spent waiting. I do wish the fares were higher, but I am still profiting after my calculated expenses. I also wish the app navigation was better, sometimes I have trouble finding my riders.
