Using the family vehicle to Uber. I see the city has a marketplace renting out or leasing uber ready cars w tlc plates. Where can we go if we dont have a tlc license to rent or lease a car to Uber in NYC Suburbs?
Also why no incentives or bonuses here?

Here you go.

#1. Nobody wants to rent their nice personal car out.
#2. Drivers don't work 12hr shifts like NYC.
#3. TLC cars rent out for ~50-60 bucks a day. That's somewhat close to the average net a driver makes in suburbs ( let's say anywhere from 50-100 bucks net , Some are even Grossing $100 a shift - see other posts here ).
#4. From #3, 'some' drivers might end up making negative net earnings after rent , 'most' will lose most of their day's net earning.
#5. So even if someone rents the car out, the market weekly rent would have to be around $200 or $250 MAX.

Which brings me to the final reason there's no rentals out here.
#6. Why rent when you can buy a car for $1500 and Uber will happily take it.
