    Took a couple of trips while I was in town, both Uber and Lyft.

    I mentioned to each of the drivers that I was a driver in Phoenix and we compared notes on our experiences.

    I had one driver mention to me that he knew full time drivers (10-12 hours a day) that were "easily" making $1500 a week. I took that with a grain of salt.....

    Was he full of it?
     
  2. $10 hour
    12 hours a day
    7 days a week
    10x12x7=$840

  3. You’re not supposed to question it you’re supposed to move to Vegas to do rideshare full time thinking you’re going to be earning that kind of money.

  4. Easily making $1500 lol who comes up with these numbers. Take away the 1 and that’s more likely what you will make working 35 hours a week before gas.

    Too many drivers in Vegas now and surge is disappearing. Hard to make good money on base rate.

    Ive had drivers tell me this too. Who are these imbeciles? Even if it were true, which its clearly not, why would you advertise this to pax.

    Ive had pax not believe me when i tell them what drivers actually make out here because they had some ret*rd who told them he makes 2k a week

    I drive everyday probably average 8hrs a day on app and usually gross $1k with quest bonuses. I could see it if you’re willing to go hard core. But gross and net are very different when you’re putting over 1k miles a week on the car.
     
  11. Yes that sounds about right. Figure around $1 per mile you drive. 8 hours a day x 7 is 55 hours. With tips and hitting both quests it is possible. But it’s a lot of work and wear and tear. Gas and maintenance/repairs will eat a big chunk of your profit down the road.

    I would hope so, after all, you're doing Select.

    I'd wager that the OP was taking X rides at best.

    In that case, the problem is that while you can certainly gross over $20/hour with tips on X (I do) you can't do it consistently for 10-12 hours a day, 7 days a week, week in, week out.

    You have to pick and choose what hours/events/etc... to drive.

    I find that maybe 6 hours a day are $20+ hours.

    The rest, well, they're crap.

    So like Whoomp there it isWhoomp there it is said, $10/hr gross for a 10-12 hour/day is more likely.

    With that kind of driving you’re also sure to get a fair share of kickbacks too. I probably average 5-10 dispensary runs and the occasional strip club/massage parlor ride each week. $1500 doesn’t actually sound so hard if you’re willing to grind.

    5-10 dispensary runs each week? That seems high. (No pun intended)

    I do drive a lot, and they mostly fall in my lap, but occasionally offer if it can be worked into conversation.

    Grind means 12-14 hours a day 6 days a week. It is unsustainable after a while.

  19. I'm sure there are a couple of drivers that have really great personalities and a lot of hustle that do much better than average.

    That being said, those people would also probably be making 3x more as a gaming bartender and 10x more if they were in corporate sales.

    Uber is ok, but not great.
