Ok guys..

Which do you think is a less stupid idea, right now, THIS WEEK!

Taking a taxi out for 9:00 pm to 9:00 am for $38.

Vs

$75 for 9:00 am to 9:00 am(24 hours)?

This isn’t a trick question or a that’s really what these taxis cost right now.


So... which is the worst idea to y’all?

Are you talking about Cab lease prices? Or profit?

so many ways to look at this cuz if he has a 24-hour lease he can just work short hours the morning Rush with only $38 of lease

A 24 Hour lease does not mean you work 24 hours.. it means you can stop and start whenever you like

cab lease or $38 for 9:00 pm or $75 for 24 yes.

see this is why I’m asking. Have a strong feeling however i also need to point out that both day and night business has been gutted (due to tourists leaving)

also a lot of medical procedures that arnt super critical have been delayed as well.

However another positive for night is that there might be a lot more round trip fares to drive thrus and gas stations (which are by default a little on the pricier side)

However with a 24 hour rental I can still work the night if it’s good.


So this is an interesting debate and why I’m asking.

I’m about to give you very very wise advice here so you can succeed in your near future. You need to immediately sell your car, get rid of the insurance, forget about Uber and find something that you can be successful with. You’re wasting your precious time by not making a smart move. I know you got this man. Time to click delete on the Uber driver app and find a new journey in your life. Uber is gone with the crisis we are in and for a very long time. Time to grow up.

Curious how you do on either offer. I personally hate driving at night. For the night owl adventure seekers I can see the appeal. You might want to consider you can probably make more on the federal $600 a week unemployment and not jeopardize your or anyones health.
