Lyft?

May 16th, 2018 at 11:20 am

Anyone have thoughts on driving for Lyft? They tell me that I could make $124 driving 6 hours a week. Is it worth the wear and tear on my vehicle? Is it safe? I tried Instacart a while back, but it was a flop. Total waste of time.

Just looking at ways to make extra money. I can't ask for a raise right now. Still trying to find things to sell on letgo. I have $30 in baked item sales this week. But with hundreds of dollars needed, I need to find another option.

    I have two friends drive for Uber with mixed reviews. One, a male, is very successful at it but he concentrates his time and efforts around Thursday through early Sunday morning. He drives the weekend partiers around. He made over $700 one weekend during NCAA tournament time. The other, a woman, focused on day time rides (mostly to/from airport trips). She felt the wear and tear and increased gas and insurance costs took a big bite out of the return. She no longer drives for Uber.

    So, in short, it's a mix bag, depending on what you are willing to commit to it.

    it's very mixed i find. Some people depending on where you live and your expectations.

    MMM did a write up of his experience:

    doesn't seem too positive, but he does give suggestions that might make it more profitable.
