Don't pay rent. Just make the car payment. I don't even need a suitcase. I can simply live with the clothes on my back. Once or twice a week I can go to the local truck stop, buy a new set of clothes, and take a shower. The only problem now is where do I shit?

1 2 1 Transport might be going bankrupt. I only made 12$ with them the last 2weeks

I'm a couple of weeks away from getting my car repo'd. Seriously thinking about buying a scooter and hooking up a trailer and doing Uber on it.

I get another car, I don't think I'll do Uber again.
I like driving, but making a living off of it isn't very realistic in today's era.
 
Lyft is here in Brevard. You just have to goto Orlando for the 'interview'. Never trust a former driver. There is a reason they didn't cut it

You have to be a complete looser to live in a car for hours for the little reward you get for doing the job. Taking shit from penny pinchers who don't tip. The only people who would do Uber are those who can't get a real job.
 
You just proved my point. I don't sit around for hours without trips. I do get tips, often. And for the record when I started I had a full time job, same place you work now remember, and now I only work there 3 days a week. By my own choosing. Keep running your lies, sad sad little man.

Maybe if you ever did some fact checking you would know the truth. Unfortunately you make a determination and run with it. I'll be sure to have a chat with your supervisor, the customers deserve better than you.

Download the Lyft app. Open it up. See the drivers all over Brevard, especially Melbourne, but I'm wrong right? Little old man needs to grow the hell up.

It is funny you basically just called everyone here "complete loosers" but you are the one who couldn't hack it.....

In fact this whole thread is your pity party for yourself. You are lucky anyone else even responded. You show your appreciation by insulting all of us who still drive. Please sir, stop me if I'm wrong. But just maybe you have a defeatist mentally. Maybe you are a spoiled brat....

When last I checked Lyft wasn't in Brevard. If they now operate in Brevard nobody told me about it.
Because of my dependance on Uber for an income I got my car repo'd. I went from making $900 a week to below $300 a week in the matter of a few weeks because both of my driving jobs got saturated with other drivers.

It is inevitable, a non-regulated employer of people who need no job skills to do the job where the only thing that matters is the lowest bid, it's inevitable that only the truly desperate or the folks who "live" in their cars end up being the only ones left doing that job. I'm all for Capitalism and knew when I got in that someday I would have to get out again or not be able to support my family. It's my fault I almost waited until it was too late to get out.

I have, and will, argue Uber's right to set their own prices. I have and will, argue that individuals should be free to sell their selves, their own services, and rent out their own property free from unnecessary regulation that only truly serves to simply make stuff more expensive then it should be. like what unions did to Car prices getting paid $25 an hour to tighten bolts for a living is ridiculous and makes the product they make more expensive then it should be.

But, I'm not going to be one of the ones who live simply to work because they barely get paid enough to live. Anyone who is able should stop Ubering and get a real job. The hourly pay isn't worth it to do Uber any longer.

BTW I'm curious, what would you call a person who buys a car that meets Uber's Qualifications, pay for Insurance that won't dump you the first time your in an accident while Ubering, pay the $500 deposit for the right to pick up passengers at the Port while paying something like $5 per pickup when most of the fares is to one of the nearby hotels, only netting you minimum fare, and compete with, what I've heard, are about 85 different drivers competing for those fares?


$500 deposit.
$5.00 per pickup.
$300+ payment for insurance every single month.
in a higher quality vehicle.
While most fares pay about $5.00 per trip.

Up the ante, add to this the several drivers, you have to compete with, who spoof their gps and makes it look like they've been parked in que since 4 am even though they don't even get there until 7.

One more thing; the best job I ever had was as a non-emergency medical transporter. And it would not have been enough to pay my family's rent if it weren't for Uber covering the difference. If I didn't need money I would still be doing both jobs, just not full time.
