    And make 20 or 30 bucks in 8 hours before expenses. I'm guessing you put in 2 hours and highly exaggerate your work ethic. Or you're just trying to scare people away. Come ON. I gross about a hundred a night and I don't even drive 8 hours. Come on, stop exaggerating.

    If you really do, then something is wrong with you mentally. You're better off just begging for money on the streets if you need to work 8 hours to make 30 bucks. Why would you come to this forum for advice if you know you can't even make 3-4 dollars in an hour? Come on, we weren't born yesterday. None of this is true unless you live in Alaska or something.

    If you come to my thread to argue that I'm wrong, then why are you wasting time arguing when you could be looking for some other way to make money?

    It's like when I was servicing vending machines. And I know how much money different machines make. People on the vending forum always exaggerated how little they were making. I honestly believe that people say stuff to scare competitors away. Otherwise, what a waste of time.

    It depends on the market. Markers vary a lot. I have worked in two different cities in pa. They are both very different in the amount of work and money.

    Well the moment that I'm only averaging 30 bucks in a full day is the day I just quit. I wouldn't complain, I'd move on. But more importantly, if these guys only make that much money, then why in the world would they still be in it? I mean unless they had hope that things would turn around... If they have no hope in their market, then why would they still do it and complain? It just baffles me. Markets no good? Simple. Move somewhere else.

    Wouldn't it be wise for a person to come on this forum for advice if they were currently only making $3-4 an hour? by the way.I used to service vending machines my first job out of high school. Where is this vending machine forum you refer to?

    6-7 hours

    100 = good day

    80 = average

    60-70 horrible


    Now add expenses - all the above = horrible.

    If only McDonald's or Burger King could figure out a way for people who work for them to buy their own ingredients, make them independent contractors.

    Make sure their gross pay = 15 dollars, but after expenses = 5 dollars.

    They could hire directly from this forum. Everyone from this forum would be defending them.

    Since you don't NEED the money, you wouldn't find it more fun to relax at home in your spare time or knit or something...and not let total strangers into your car for the sake of "meeting people"? They have clubs and organizations for that kind of thing.

    How much comes from Uber and how much from Lyft?

    I do believe your numbers Steve. But the ones that make like 3 dollars an hour GROSS is mind-blowing.

    The days I make 0 dollars from Lyft are my worst days. The more I make with Lyft the better my day is. However Lyft is just absolutely too slow. Some days are just way too slow so you need UBER to at least make something for those day. No idea how people make it just on UBER.

    And does anyone make it with just Lyft? Why would people only do that one?

    Some people do with one or the other.

    I have done a few days total 6-7 hours Lyft and made 90 to 100 bucks just LYFT.

    The thing is if it's slow all the sudden, and you don't get anything for two hours which has happened your whole day is ruined.

    There's really not much difference in pulling a whole shift with either one, only that you know UBER is always busy usually and LYFT too many drivers not enough customers.

    Oh yeah. I've lived over in the mid west. No way I'd even try to do it over there. Try taxi driving over there. Might still work out there.
