Great job if you need fast cash and you have a fuel efficient vehicle
Driver (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – June 14, 2017
I can easily make $150 a day...if i just drive around aimlessly. Finding the hotspots and waiting can be frustrating, especially when you wait for anywhere between a minute and 2 hours to find out you only got a $4 fare. Same thing for the app itself; sometimes you'll get pinged from somewhere 40 minutes away, Lyft doesn't start paying you until you pick the customer up. So you drive 40 minutes away to pick somebody up; guess what?.They only needed a ride a few minute's drive and boom, you just drove 40 minutes for a $8 fare.
It doesn't always happen and I've learned to ignore the long distance ones. You can get good days and bad days, and it does depencd on the region too. Try it out, you might do better than i have.
Flexible and easy to make a few bucks
