    I love that my friends think it's my fault I'm not making great (or any) money driving for Uber. They all tell me I'm doing it wrong and I should do this or that and I can make $500 to 1000 a week lol. It's sad because these friends listen to the commercials and they speak with Uber driver's in other cities when they use Uber and ask the drivers so how much do you make driving for Uber and the driver says I make $50,000 to $70,000 a year. LMAO, I tell my friends these people are full of S#!*. I say maybe drivers in NEW YORK or SAN FRANCISCO....
    So I guess if you are one of these people making $1000 a week driving please post some screen shots of your earnings for 2 3 weeks in a row, I love to be proven wrong.

    I've had one similar to that. Pax say, "How does Uber decide what kind of car you get?" Um, they don't. This is mine. Pax says "I know, but it's, like, an Uber right?" Um, it's only an Uber when I turn in the app, and it's still mine, I paid for it. Stupid Pax don't even understand.

    Many drivers can post $500 earnings. Few if any will post the 1000 miles plus they drove to make that $500.

    The real numbers per week are:

    Full Time Uber Driver Calculations in CLT:


    300 miles per shift x 5 shifts per week: 1500 miles per week. Gov calculated wear and tear (let's be conservative) .12 per mile:. $180 per week.

    28 miles per gallon so average of 53 gallons per week at $2.19 a gallon: $114 per week.

    Obama Care Health Care: $54 per week (the second cheapest rate for single middle aged person)

    $15 per week for smart phone to be able to take Uber pings.

    Total so far: $363 and we haven't even factored in a $50 car payment or car insurance.

    Truth is Charlotte Uber Drivers are grossing $2-4 an hour and you still gotta make rent and food payments.

    $500 a week is **** since we have to foot the bill for all operation costs for our vehicles.

    Not only are there plenty of people stupid enough to believe the ads, but there are also paid employees whose job it is to spread more lies to make Uber sound good. We have some in these forums. They make blatantly false claims about how amazing Uber is in relation to a known or shared problem.
    I live in a really small area so I'm lucky if I make more than $200/week, but that's not including gas/maintenance

    Lol tell them they do the Last Man Standing challenge: they call 30 Uber drivers to the Partner Support Center, they put you in a room with the car in the middle for 24 hours; they have all of you put one hand on the car, the other hand behind your back, and the last person to keep their hand on the car when the 24 hours are up is that Uber vehicle's new driver.

    Everyone hears the ads on TV, or on the radio, and reads the press releases from Uber.

    That's what they all say, you can make a bundle driving for Uber- and the cheaper the rides, the more the partners are raking it in.

    Riders don't have to make sense of it, they just recognize a cheap form of transport and take advantage of it.

    And if everyone is getting rich off of it, why not?

    This is so true. I have found that very thing to be accurate. It seems that for practically every 2 miles, I earn a$1.


    As far as the other stuff, yeah, it's frustrating. So much hype and misinformation. People think we're making so much. And yet think, they do not. Simple math would tell them otherwise. What doesn't help us is that there are those among us who feed these lies.
