Also Uber will sign you up for TNC and then your insurance company may find out and drop you. It has happened to many people in VA. If you are an Uber driver you are basically a total loser. Immigrants, criminals and uneducated people. I am one of the three....how many are you?
What is TNC and how can I prevent it? Right now I have liberty mutual.

I dont break it down like your asking. I can drive on 20 dollars of gas filled up at 1.99 at Spotsylvania Citgo. I probably put 200 miles a day or more. At the end of the day I look at my totals subtract the gas, I dont include insurance because its a 2nd car. I have a 2014 Camry so maitenance is normally 40 bucks every 2 to 3 months. I dont do the free service because the dealerships put you in the back of the line and you end up wasting a day. So on Wednesdays my DD is usally 1300=1500 I may have a few LYFT rides too. But am too busy with Uber. Anyone that says its not busy in DC just isnt putting the time in.....
So true I'm busy everytime I go outmonday alone I did 30 trips

Most people would tell you to buy rideshare insurance...just make sure Liberty Mutual doesn't find out. If you have an accident they find out automatically and drop you.

I never use Rider app......once you are inside the beltway the pings will keep coming. Especially in Arlington, Annandale, Springfield, Alexandria and Tysons. Go into DC and the only way out is turn off your app. I drive 10 hours and make 200 a day.... go to youtube and check out Terry Tips, Lyft Zone, Uber DC, and Jermaine Ellis....
All great areas. I am from the other side of D.C. so I end up in Potomac, Bethesda, Silver Spring, and College Park. Do you do a lot of D.C. pickups? I tend to get back out of the city before turning the app back on. There are way to many short trips but I feel that I may be missing out.

the traffic in Tysons probably moves slower then DC if that is possible. 20 mins for 2 miles. Arlington is mostly $5 trips into DC or DCA.
