Hello, I am curious as I was considering signing up (desperately need a little extra income while job hunting).
Given that you signed up AFTER the new TLC regulations do you get trips to NYC (anywhere 5 boroughs) or does Uber keep you out on Long Island only? If you do get trips to say Manhattan what happens then do you just drive empty back to Long Island?
Also how viable is it really!? I been reading other posts and people are reporting to be making $80 GROSS for 6-8 hours.. that can't be right can it.. that's like $6-7 an hour after gas and expenses.
adoubov...yes you can get trips into the 5 boros...NJ..Westchester..etc. But you will not get any rides for your return trip, until you get back into Nassau County..In addition, you assume all the toll costs on the return trip..once you acheive "gold" status, you will get a note, before you accept the trip, of the direction of the call and the amount of time it will take to reach your destination..the time estimate is always underestimated..from Bellmore, I wont accept any calls going west that take 40 mins or more..
i dont know what the net result is, income-wise. I have kept receipts and will visit my accountant soon..and find out how much tax i owe..that will give me an idea for 2020
Yes as far as income figure $15. To $17 gross per hour at most. After expenses it's $8to $10 . Unless you have big payments on you car then it could be less. It use to be better but too many drivers now.
