I don't think the part timers get it. The major problem is that the part timers usually drive during peak business hours and that takes business away from full time taxi and uber drivers. For me, a large amount of my earnings used come from driving on weekends and at events. Now my earnings are much smaller, mainly because there are too many drivers on the road and most aren't legal to do business in my city. I'm a taxi driver and I really don't have the option to work part time. If I could I would. I'm not going to drive uber mainly because the pay rate isn't enough in my area to justify the expenses. Also my area is an over saturated market due to uber x and xl. If you don't need the money please don't drive. All you're doing is screwing the full timers out of income that's essential for them to have successful businesses.
