The Rideshare Guide Project

The Rideshare Guide Project is dedicated to new and existing drivers who want to create meaningful full-time or part-time income by driving for Uber, Lyft or one of the other TNCs (Transportation Network Company) like Carma or RideAustin

Because rideshare drivers are independent contractors and not employees of the TNCs, the TNCs are not able to tell drivers how to do their work, much less provide an employee manual

This hands-off approach by the TNCs is required by contract law but unfortunately, it makes it quite challenging for drivers to succeed in what should be a fairly straightforward business

While he was considering the possibility of becoming a rideshare driver, Wylee Post searched exhaustively for information online about how to succeed with Uber and Lyft but his searching was mostly in vain

The key question for Wylee, and probably for anyone researching the rideshare industry was, "How much money can I make?"

You would think that such an obvious question could easily be answered in the current internet environment where answers to just about any question are readily available

Instead of answers, however, Wylee found generalities and vague guesses about the income potential of driving for the TNCs

The Accidental Rideshare Driving Expert

With his pragmatic approach to most things in life and his professional background as a data analyst, Wylee set out to find his own answers

He signed up with both Uber and Lyft and began carefully compiling his earnings and expenses while performing in-depth analysis of how to maximize his income

Wylee determined for himself what times of day were best for driving, whether to stay close to home waiting for passengers or head into the city where rides were more plentiful

Most importantly, he learned how to track his earnings and expenses, including allowances for vehicle repairs, taxes, and eventual vehicle replacement

This detailed accounting allowed Wylee to know without a doubt how much actual take-home pay he was earning

After more than two years of driving for Uber and Lyft, with over 9,000 trips completed, Wylee realized that he had unexpectedly become an expert on the rideshare industry and he is quite passionate about the subject

He has compiled his extensive knowledge into two cutting-edge books about ridesharing and he provides insightful commentary on the exploding rideshare phenomena in his blog

The Rideshare Guide Project is the result of Wylee's zeal and his desire to help other drivers catapult to the same level of success that he is currently experiencing

The Website

On this website, you will find extensive resources that are intended to provide meaningful answers to all of your rideshare questions

Wylee is dedicated to your success and wants to help you succeed as a driver for one of the TNCs

The site emphasizes what Wylee believes are the primary considerations for any rideshare driver: first, choosing a vehicle; and second, obtaining supplemental insurance 

Then, obviously, a new driver needs to signup to become an Uber driver or join up with Lyft - many drivers choose to do both

Once those fundamental factors have been addressed, it is time to go out on the road and start driving

To help both new and existing drivers maximize their income while rideshare driving, Wylee has compiled his extensive knowledge into two state-of-the-art eBooks and he has made a commitment to providing mentoring for both new and existing drivers

Wylee keeps drivers abreast of current rideshare news in The Accidental Rideshare Expert Blog, where he makes sense of the ever-evolving rideshare industry
