    I was reading Penn State's 2019 Research paper on PART-TIME RIDESHARING, and how they do not quantify part-time work as "NUMBER OF HOURS" driven, but rather how dependent the driver is on the income of gig-economy. i.e. Driving 35 hours, but the NET$ only amounting to 3% of your annual...

    All I wanted to do was make $200 a week driving 10 to 12 hours for Uber. I thought it would be easy but it led me on a 1,500 trip odyssey. A little less than 3 years ago my wife and I retired. We sold our house and moved into a condo near by. The leases on our cars ended and we leased a Honda...

    If you do Uber part time, you are just subsidizing Uber with your day job. The startup time at the begging of the shift, getting to the good location, getting fueled up, checking the oil and tire pressure, and the long haul home with less or no pay, is bringing down your average hourly wage...

    PAX: "Is this an EV?" Me: "Well, it is, until it isn't." This is the beginning of a conversation that I have at least 10 times a week with riders on LYFT. I certainly do not mind this conversation, as I started doing this side-hustle to maximize the utility of a depreciating asset (my car)...

    Just curious how many part-time drivers are out there.. What are the most common weekly rental rates/hours offered? Is it shift work? Has anyone else noticed some of the major insurance providers (american transit) requiring 3 years dmv now and 1 year TLC? I could have sworn last year they...

    Has anyone ever bought a new car solely for Uber and earned enough to make the payment (and then some) working part time? I'm seriously considering this but not sure if it's a wise investment. I welcome any input.
