You've Been Thinking About Becoming an Uber Driver, But You Have Questions ...

How much money can I really make?

How do I convince my significant other?

Can I use my existing vehicle?

What kind of insurance will I need?

Does it make sense to rent or lease a vehicle?

How do I act like a pro (and avoid looking like an amateur)?

You see lots of information on the web about driving for Uber but none of it really answers your questions


Here are answers to some of your questions:

It’s hard to find an answer to this question on the web.

Some rideshare drivers intentionally inflate their earnings in order to signup new drivers and get the bonus money for the signup.

Other drivers make claims about earnings without actually tracking their own earnings and expenses accurately.

Then there are the “studies” claiming that rideshare drivers make well under minimum wage.

With these conflicting data sources, what is the real answer?

Well, for starters, understand that there are really two numbers we are interested in to answer this question:

  • The amount of money Uber will pay you as a driver
  • Your vehicle expenses to earn that money

What you really want to know is how much money you can keep out of your rideshare earnings.

profit = income - expenses

This is a standard calculation in any kind of business, including rideshare driving.

A unique challenge in the rideshare industry is that both income and expenses can vary a great deal from driver to driver, so there is no single answer to the question, “How much can I earn as an Uber driver?”

If you only drive Monday through Friday between the hours of 1 pm and 4 pm, you aren’t going to earn as much as a driver who focuses on higher-demand hours of the day when Uber is more likely to offer surge pricing and other incentives.

In the Rideshare Guides you’ll discover numerous Pro Tips for maximizing your income –choosing the best time of the day to drive, taking advantage of surge pricing, picking the best locations to drive, and many more.

You’ll also learn how to minimize your expenses as much as possible.

Obviously, the primary expense for any rideshare driver is fuel so picking a vehicle with good gas mileage is a key factor.

If you are shopping for a vehicle, the Science of Rideshare Driving explores all aspects of choosing an appropriate rideshare vehicle so you can make an informed choice.

The Science of Rideshare Driving also explains how to maximize the tax benefits of driving for Uber.

With the Art and Science of Rideshare Driving eBooks you'll be able to maximize your income and minimize your expenses - the result: maximum take home pay!

Having or picking an appropriate vehicle is a key factor for succeeding as a rideshare driver.

Start by checking Uber’s requirements for rideshare vehicles in your specific location “Driver Requirements – How to Drive with Uber

If your existing vehicle meets all of Uber’s guidelines, the significant question becomes, “Does it make sense to use my existing vehicle for rideshare driving?”

The Science of Rideshare Driving will give you all of the information you need to answer this question for your specific lifestyle and situation.

While a used Toyota Prius is probably the ideal rideshare vehicle overall, your family lifestyle may require a minivan, or maybe you choose to drive a BMW or Audi because you like luxury cars.

There are premium Uber programs like UberXL for 6 passenger vehicles and UberSELECT for luxury sedans, so the income potential of your minivan or Beemer could be higher.

Offsetting the higher pay from UberXL and UberSELECT is the fact that there is less demand for these programs – most passengers choose the lower-cost UberX and UberPOOL services – you may find yourself driving UberX passengers simply because there are no UberXL or UberSELECT passengers looking for rides in your area.

Regardless of what you are driving, with the Rideshare Guides you will be able to determine if using your existing vehicle for rideshare driving makes sense or not.

There are essentially three options when it comes to choosing the rideshare vehicle you will drive:


  • Use your existing vehicle or a vehicle you have access to
  • Purchase a vehicle
  • Rent or lease a vehicle

The Science of Rideshare Driving will walk you through the pros and cons of each choice so you can make an informed decision.

Ideally, you already own an appropriate vehicle and you can just put it into rideshare service.

If you need a rideshare vehicle to drive, or if you are in a position to purchase a vehicle specifically for rideshare driving – that’s fantastic!

With the guidance available in the Rideshare Guides, you will be able to choose the ideal vehicle for your needs.

The RideshareGuide Team believes that the ideal vehicle specifically for rideshare driving is a used Toyota Prius with under 100,000 miles. Pick up a clean one for less than $10,000 – plan on spending $3,000 to replace the battery at 150K miles and then drive it for another 150K miles.

While the Prius is the ideal rideshare vehicle from a business perspective, it may not be ideal for your personal lifestyle.

Perhaps you already drive a leased BMW sedan and want to use the income from rideshare driving as an offset to the higher cost of enjoying a luxury car.

If you don’t own a car already and don’t have $10,000 to buy a used Prius, can you still be an Uber driver?

There are several options for renting and leasing rideshare vehicles.

Check out the Uber Rent A Car program and Uber Lease A Car program.

While these options may make sense for some people, it is important to understand the pros and cons before signing on the dotted line.

The Science of Rideshare Driving eBook will show you how to evaluate your personal vehicle needs and then make the best vehicle choice when you become an Uber driver.

There are a number of ways to maximize your earnings when you become an Uber driver and you will discover them all in the Rideshare Guides.

Some of the key factors that affect take home earnings are:

  • Vehicle selection
  • Driving for both Uber and Lyft (and perhaps others depending on your specific location)
  • Picking the best time of day to drive
  • Taking advantage of surge pricing
  • Taking advantage of bonuses and incentives

Vehicle selection is going to be the primary factor in maximizing earnings. Because fuel is the main expense for any rideshare driver, the higher the vehicle’s gas mileage, the better.

High gas mileage and low ownership cost make the Toyota Prius an ideal rideshare vehicle for maximizing profits, but you can still make money with other vehicles.

Most rideshare drivers choose to work with both Uber and Lyft. Tips tend to be higher with Lyft and both drivers and passengers tend to rate their satisfaction with Lyft higher than with Uber.

The offset to these positive factors about Lyft is that Uber controls well over half of the rideshare market in most major US cities. If you choose to drive only for Lyft you may end up sitting in the parking lot waiting for passengers.

The best time of day to drive is when “surge pricing” is likely to occur - Uber pays drivers a higher rate per mile when there is more demand for rides than the currently available drivers can handle – the increased pay or “surge pricing” serves as an incentive for more rideshare drivers to get in their cars and drive.

Many of the Pro Tips in the Rideshare Guides reveal insider knowledge for taking advantage of surge pricing.

Uber regularly offers bonuses and incentives to drivers – being aware of these income opportunities is an important part of maximizing your take home pay.

The Rideshare Guides will show you how to stay on top of Uber’s current offers, and, more importantly, how to pick the ones to focus on.

You may need to convince someone that becoming an Uber driver makes sense.

Perhaps it is a significant other or maybe a family member loaning you money (you hope!) for a rideshare vehicle.

Or maybe you’re just the right-brained, analytical type that needs to have all the numbers worked-out on paper before proceeding on any new venture.

Regardless of your personal situation, the Rideshare Guides will give you everything you need to put together a solid business plan.

You’ll be able to project your income and expenses and then arrive at a realistic number for expected earnings.

The Earning Case Study will provide the supporting evidence for your business plan.

The fact that you are asking this question indicates that you are serious about getting results and we, the RideshareGuide team, applaud you for that.

Whether you are looking for some help getting started, or wanting to follow the shortest path to maximum earnings, we are here to help you.

How Much Can I Really Earn as an Uber Driver?

That's the real question, isn't it?

Part of the decision about becoming an Uber driver is obviously related to how much money you can make in a day ...

... but more importantly, what is your take home pay?

You really want to know what your hourly income is after accounting for expenses

Having this number lets you compare rideshare driving to your other income earning options

If you can make more money driving for Uber than any of your other alternatives, then it makes sense to be a rideshare driver

Only you can make that decision but you can't make it without knowing how much you would make as an Uber driver

The Rideshare Business Guide books provide everything you need to determine your take-home pay, and the Earnings Case Study documents two full years of the author's daily earnings.
