I’m actually doing fine. I work 8 hours a day and make $220-$300 depending on the day and what events are going on.Sound like you're trapped in your driving hell.
Is that the best you can do?
The public transportation in my city is shit, so lots of people depend on LyUber to get to work. So all I have to do is stay in middle/working class areas and I get a consistent amount of decent trips along with $3-$8 surges on top of them about 50% of the time. And most of my rides are more than 8 miles away. With what they pay in my city, longer rides are pretty profitable while short ones aren’t worth the time of day.
