Lately I've been considering quitting my job to do uber and lyft fulltime. Im making almost 4x as much money with ridesharing as i do going to work everyday on a consistent basis. Which makes me wonder how much more i could make if i quit my job. lm not asking for advice or opinions... Post the most you've made in a week. Here's mine:

118 trips in one week isn't full-time?

Looks like you didn't make much on Lyft though. That's just over $10/hr gross before expenses including everything from - gas, health insurance, auto insurance, deprecation etc etc.

I don't know your budget, but I don't think most people would be able to survive on $400 per week as their sole source of income.

What are u talking about?? What's the most you ever made in a week?? Can't even answer a simple question. Gtfoh

Those are already full time hours?
I work 20-30 hours a week at my "real job" and if i did uber full time I'd work 12hours + a day...

I have an app that runs uber and lyft simultaneously so i really didn't work 80 hours.... I did about 50 total thst week

Whoa, slow down there, Charles. I've broke $1000 a few times, but I didn't enjoy it. I'm not sure about you, but I personally like to have a life. You really aren't working your own schedule, if you find yourself having to work those types of hours everyday. Plus your car will be in the shop at least every 2-3 weeks.

The whole reason I do Uber is because of the flexibility. Once you work more then 8 hours a day, you lose all of that freedom. I can't wait to finish school and be done with this. My car can't too.

It's not about being lazy. You should definitely quit your job if spending 80 hours weekly is enticing to you. You make more doing Uber than your job because you can work a lot more. I'll find it for you but I think 4 months ago I did a full 80 hours on both Lyft and Uber and got around $1400. Not bad but you can become a slave to the job real quick. And I was mentally tired so school took a hit that week. See three years ago when the rates were higher I remember hitting 700 easy in Chapel Hill. You know companies love people like you, dry you out of your time instead of paying you fair wages in which you could do 1/2 the trips on 1/2 the time and make the same amount. But keep hustling my man, I'm not judging. But no way am I working 80 hours again for 1400- gas, insurance,...etc. I like to work smart not hard. also, you say you did 50 hours? I don't think that's true even with both apps on at the same time. Instead use a mile counter then add up your hours from the time you leave your home to the time you get back. I'm sure that to make that amount you need to do at least 70-80 hours. If you only did 50, then I'm wrong and it won't be the first time. Good luck with everything and keep grinding. Sorry for the long post.

Agreed. Even on my best weeks with the students, I've cracked maybe a little over 110. But that's on a good week in a little over 50. I guess 165 isn't impossible, but I wouldn't rely on that number if it's true.

Looks like about 80 hours to me. You can run both apps at the same time but you can't deliver uber and lyft pax at the same time. My experience is 2 rides an hour, maybe a tad higher.
Does it really matter how many hours i worked?? I simply asked what was the most someone made in a single week. Sheesh.

Uber and Lyft are looking for drivers just like you. Humans easily justify bad decisions as they are looking at the immediate rewards.

The real question every driver needs to ask themselves is if they are truly profitable. There will be a point where a car needs a major repair or replacement.

Profitability can be determined by figuring out how much you make dollar per mile before and after expenses. That calculation should include dead miles.

I have never done more than 70 trips in a week and operate well above $1 per mile. Sub $1 per mile proves to be unprofitable.

When drivers post numbers you should be prepared for veteran drivers to question your post and motives behind the post. Them hours are full time hours.

those are some lovely numbers and congrats. honestly though man youre going to find nothing but sorry ass hacks on here finding every single possible way to bring down anything and everything you have to say. they will bring math equations, formulas, a crystal ball, and most importantly they swear that whatever comes out their mouth is law. you did this so your stupid, and you did that so youre at loss like **** who the f asked you. dont let these squares get to you. whatever hours you do means money in your pocket while these idiots live by trip, cashing out so they can afford gas ,most likely living with mom or divorced and hate life whatever their reason is to be such a sack of shit to so society. keep hustlin bro and to answer your original post in the 2 months ive been doing this, ive racked in 1k and i drive x and select platform. Im sure i can make more but im not from here, and thats a cool number for me as im not making this a career.
