My new rule for driving on rental


Well-Known Member
Since Lyft raised rental rewards, I won't be able to get any this week. Lyft is failing me - not giving me enough customers to qualify for that reward.
As a result , I will stop driving for Lyft exclusively and go back to basics.
Rule number 1. I have to make $120 + $30 for gas each day
Rule number 2. Actively look for a new job.

What do you think, is it obtainable $150 between UberEATS and Lyft AFTER fees?

I don't know how I suppose to qualify for 90 rides bonus if I only got just over 50 ?

Are you doing UberEATs now and if yes, more or less, what percentage of your rides are they?

Based on the time that it takes (you're basically making 2 trips and barely getting paid for 1), you may want to replace EATS with some selected pool rides depending on the time and you location.

Rule 2 has it's advantages and may work for you. Personally I really enjoy not having a boss.

I do just uber and lyft, no ubereats. I have a goal of 175 per day and do 200+ some days. 150 is my minimum though. You just gotta drive till you make what you want /need and be willing to drive long hours. I work early mornings and do 10 to 12 hours to make anywhere from 150 to 250. So yes it's possible.
I do basically the same thing. I try to gross $1000/week within 5 days which has been getting much harder to do lately but I've been making adjustments which are starting to be help.

Having a life gets in the way on a regular basis for me. Weddings, birthday parties, adult children dropping by; all that happens on weekends and distracts from hitting the goal.

Agreed that it's much harder to reach that 1k mark now. Every day my usually empty go to spots for a ride have more and more ants. Gotta do 6 days every so often to hit 1k. I really rely on long weekends when I can usually do 250+ sat sun to bring in that extra I can't find on weekdays. My miles keep going up too as I have to position more to avoid packs

I don't usually have a goal since I only drive Tuesday for a few hours (5-6) in the evening. Then Thursday for a few hours in the evening. Finally Friday night into early am (8-10 hours), and Saturday night into early morning hours (8-10 hours). Here's is what my typical week looks like...
