Disclaimer: Sorry if this is a redundant thread.

So now that I know the Uber X driver's pay structure how does it compare to a person driving a limo or cab?

Yellow Cab cabbies pay about $300/week for a lease in Houston. Anything they make they get to keep.

However, there is a transaction fee for credit cards that yellow cab takes out for themselves. Not sure of the amount. Thus, the main complaint Uber riders have about Taxi's, is "the credit card machine never works".
