    Just put in 6-7 and you can make a hundred. On a good day. Today I did 3 hours 15 dollars, sometimes it's just bad luck.

    I make a minimum of $100 on any given Thurs, Fri, or Saturday night. I did $135.00 this past Saturday with no crazy surges. Disregard the 13+ hrs as it is not a true representation. I keep the app on while home to get a select ride out. I live in an area that does not have much activity... so basically on for 5 -6 hours before I actually went on the road. The irony is I could have made a lot more as there was a nice surge out at Disney around 3-4 am due to a huge marathon they were having. I was just too tired to stay out an then have to drive 40 min back home.

    I don't usually work Sunday nights as it's not typically worth it, but last night I did and made $94.xx. Not quite to your $100.00 mark, but close

    Geez 13 hours for 137? I hate having app on even at home, it still feels like work cause you are waiting around for it.

    Well i went out another 2 hours this evening and had 1 run that entire time. so about 6 hours online today and made 41.xx i am sure in very big cities or tourist areas Uber could be good to great but in the 3rd largest city in Pennsylvania (Allentown PA, look it up) it's a joke and I am positive it's like that across most of the country

    If some of you are think uber make good money than I suggest you to go on Youtube to study math, like algebra math.

    You drive 7 minutes =1.5 miles to pick up for the rider than waiting at the door for another 3 minute, the trip is about 3 miles = $7
    tell me how do you profits?

    When you work at a time and place getting 5-6 of those rides every 1.5-2 hours. The occasional $5-10 tip helps as well.
    I average about $12-13 am hour after fuel cost on the regular. I have a goal of 200-250 after gas every week. Usually fall somewhere in that range.

    Those numbers did not include lyft and tips. Also, having it on while at home is no big deal. The same as having my phone on for business calls. I don't pay attention to it, just go about my day as normal.

    all the money you earned will soon go into the new car. so at the end you will end up broke.

    Dude. Your car isn't an investment. The value goes down every day whether I drive it or not. A repair to it is going to be required at mile X whether that mile comes in 2 months or a year, it's going to come. I'm (we all) are taking what equity we have in the vehicle early. That's all. Yup, I've put 5k miles on my car doing this since October. I also cleared almost $3k that I wouldn't have had not doing this. It's something extra to help me out financially now. I'm sure for most this isn't a forever thing... do what you gotta do for the time you have to..

    Uh no..... I'm baffled. I'm actually calling out all u trolls. If u say I'm trolling I say you're a troll.

    Troll is such a cliche nowadays and if you make 30 dollars a day working 8 hours then quit. If saying that is trolling then I don't know what not trolling is.

    Google's definition of an internet troll:

    In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll's amusement....

    drrider85 if you're a troll so is like 90% of topics on this thing. But whatevs.
    Some of this stuff on this forum is helpful, but mostly mindless occupation.

    I have been asked numerous times why I am here and the reason I am in this board is for helping other drivers with my experiences whether it be my military experience....or fare for hire experience I have numerous years in both aspects........but other than that I read it to kill time......get a laugh.....smh at why people put up with the bs that Uber is.....and apparently I am liked and some of what I say is appreciated probably as much as SEAL Team 5
