You almost never see them in most cities. I don't understand why they still drive taxi's when you consider they lease the cab for $100 a day + cost of fuel + 6% of fares (to cab company), and only have the taxi for 12 hours.More than Uber / Lyft. However they are easier to distinguish. Taxi drivers only have to work half as much.
I never understood why those that do this full time don't just drive a Taxi full time. Part timers makes sense, but those that want to pull 70 hours a week driving Uber can probably earn the same in under 40, or more.Because many of us have full time jobs and this is a way of making extra money.
Got any more stupid questions?
