Hello everyone,

I need your advice to make a decision where to drive this upcoming season! First I have never been visiting Florida and I don’t know about the traffic and hotspots, whatever I just decided to joy next 3 or 4 months living and driving full time for Uber&Lyft in Florida. Now I am planning where to go and just figured out three different cities:

Naples, Fl or West Palm Beach or Fort Lauderdale

any information will be appreciated and if you are willing to share estimate earnings per day , thats will be great!

Thanks in advance

You need to drive towards closest licensing organ for Blue Collar License or Commercial Vehicle Operation school in some Community College, if you still want to drive in this overpopulated place with blind suicide drivers.

Uber X and pool + lyft
Good luck, you'll be able to kill a lot of time and learn the areas real fast. Not sure about making money though we got some of the worst rates in the country for the money that's here

Yeah. Come to Miami.

16 trips today. Six of them paid $2.50 and 3 others paid less than $3.65. all x rides.

You'd have to do 40 trips a day to gross $100 down here. And $2.50 fares don't tip.

I did complete my quest though. So add another dollar onto each of those $2.50 rides.

Don't spend it all at once.

Plenty of rides on Saturday and Sunday morning by port Everglades and Fort Lauderdale AirPort. Most pay less than $7. I canceled 2 each morning then got a warning from lyft for too many cancels.

And there's your answer! Fort Myers -- not Naples -- is the market of choice!

In the Miami market, Poop and Uberrhea are really good in Brickell, and around FIU and UM.

Those are x rides? There's no such thing as a $78 x ride in Miami. Without surge that is. And that's an urban myth anywhere but Miami Beach.

You looked at all those pick ups and drop offs and thought Miami? lol

Oldfart is a Florida West coast gang member lol Marco to Punta Gorda Airport for $80 makes sense, (In spanish punta gorda means pointing at fat chicks, thanks rosetta stone)

Nope. Just saying there are few if any 80 mile rides in Miami...

Such a day is considered an aberration not a norm. Oldfart, please stop misleading new folks.

Yes all x rides.
Until yesterday I would have said there are no $78 rides here either. RSW to Marco pays $45 X and $65 XL. And that's a great ride because I can almost always get a ride back. The$ 75 ride was from Marco to the Punta Gorda airport which is about 30 miles further north than RSW It paid $68 and a $10 tip

To the OP
If you decide to come over here to work, know that nearly every airport ride is screened and nearly every driver does cash rides off the app

Inspite of that I still do ok in season hanging out near the Naples hotels and the Gulf Front condos

Good luck

Old fart doesn't drive X
Oh but I do
my car is XL but I don't have the patience to wait for XL rides only. And my wife insists that I take my last ride by noon each day and besides I need a nap by then anyway

The way things work out only about 25% of my rides are XL
