My math is perfectly fine. My English not the best. 55$ minus 1$ SRF, is 54$. Take out 20$ for the toll. Now I got 34$. Take 7$ uber fee out of 34$ and I got 27$. Add 10$ from the toll and you got 37$. Don t use midtown tunnel and you get back to Jersey with 33-38$ in your packet in 1.5-2 hour. That is not bad. I do not calculate gas. I spend 3 tanks a week so I just calculate one time 120$/week or less now with the gas being crazy cheap. No LGA/JFK at rush hour on regular price. Not worth it. I think 15$/hour is great. Min wage is 8.25 in JerseyI think you gotta check your math, $55- $5.75 (carpool ezpass) = $49.25 then take $8 for the QMT now you are at $41.25 now Uber's cut is $8.25 and you are left with $33 take $5 for gas and you are netting $27 for 3hrs work that's 9p/h,
now if you want to save 30 minutes then you pay another $8 at the QMT and you are left with $19 for 2.5 hrs or around $7.50p/h, and this hourly rate can go down even more if you are only taking 1 pax.
Car payment???????? Insurance?????? Since I join Uber my car payment and insurance are the same!!!! LOL. Are you calculating taxes and miles and car depreciation ????? Then I have to tell my wife to calculate her 1000 miles a month commute and put money away for each mile!!!! WTHYeah $35 before Gas, car maintenance, car payment, car Insurance! Stop doing uber Math math. What's your true cost of driving?
Wow... Don't laugh to loud educate yourself first. it's call costs of doing business since you are using your car for business your insurance and car payment are expenses. Besides depreciation is not just a tax deduction it's also the use and abuse of your car which you pay for on a monthly basis
My wife s car is 4 years old and 75k with NO UBER and it worth less then half of original price new. A new car lose so much in the first years that is not relevant with the miles. I look at the thing differently. I pay 350/month for the car and I want to get money out of it. In two years my car will worth about the same amount that I will still own and I will trade in or sell. Is like a cell phone. Every two years a new one. Some people smoke 200-300 month. I drive a 2014 model for 350 and make money out of it. My wife makes 45k a year and her car cost her 20k new. In 4 years she paid the car 9 times. When it get 100k that car will go to. Time for a new one. That is how I think. I know is different. I am different.Wow...

Do NOT go to to NYC airports on regular price on rush hour. If is no traffic is ok. Jersey city to LGA is 25$ fare plus 20$ toll.Yes, and drivers has the right to refuse going to NYC Airports. I do it all the time. Uber told me to do it.
Do Not go to NYC Airports.
it works for me to. I need Uber for another two years max. I have other plans after that.My advice to you is to think like a businessman. Don't be different be smart. Talk with an accountant, sounds like you need to. Uber works for me, I run it like a business. Separate your family life from your uber business.
You get 25% out??? Why??Doesn't Uber take their 25% out of the total cost of the trip including the tolls. I haven't had the chance to do the math. Are we getting robbed out of the toll? Just food for thought...
