So here it is the season right now where we get some business up until mid-April or so. But normally during the day it is about one ping per hour. I started in October and have been doing it basically "half time". With gross earnings around $5 per hour here during the off season I can't see myself seriously continuing with this. I have other things which I could be doing.

I think after the season ends I will just do Uber strictly when I am say on my way to the store by myself and I wouldn't mind a 15-30 minute delay to take a passenger and pay for my gas for the day. With the over saturation of drivers and the complete lack of any promotions here I think that is the best way to do Uber.

Weekend bar crowds will still be productive.

He's chosen to only drive during the day which we all know pays awful. Knowing that it doesn't make sense to continue to drive
Well I do drive at night when there are events and it is worth it. But an extra $1-$3 an hour just doesn't cut it for me as the risk of bad things happening triples at night. If I were to work say 9pm - 3am I would want at least $100 gross for those six hours.
