Well if its so bad, why do you still do it. If its so saturated someone must be making money or do you all just like working for free. Lol

That's the million dollar question. I learned my lesson last year. And Fuber was only taking a 20% cut. Considering the new batch of suckers are handing over 25% to Fuber, it's impossible to make decent money.

Pine hills. Seriously when I see how many TAXI requests are coming from zone 420 I imagine there would be equally high demand for Uber/Lyft.

Seeing as how must of the cab rides from that area are in the $10 range mears... Most of them would come to minimum rides for uber.

Mathmatically your best bet is to uber off dig some cardboard out of the trash and pretend to be homeless while panhandling.

No expenses per hour so it's actually possible to make a profit.

The UCF area will get you a lot of rides. Also the Winter Park area.

But you won't make money.

Epic fail Bob, both areas are crap *right now* with UCF and Rollins being on summer break

Don't ask questions like this just look at the heat map Uber sends out every week or so. Your only going to get negative answers from the same 5 people. we are all competition no ones going to give you their $$. Good luck

You see how it says "orlando International Airport" for my location and that I'm driving "taxi"

Just saying... that's how I'm making money. Bob's doing Mears Luxry and Yuri is doing Mears Taxi... of the people who responded to you... only one of them drives *only* for the uber platform.

Also just so you know.. Uber X in Orlando is 65C per mile, that's only 72% of what your getting in new Orleans. and 6c less per minute

The 90c per mile doesn't mean anything here. City is only 10 square miles and 99% of the rides here are for less then a mile. So we make a huge $3. Nothing but the minimum means anything here. From one side of the city to the other is only $6.

And that's still better than driving 10 minutes to pick someone up and making $2.75 for 7 or 8 miles driven
