Uber and Lyft drivers making $3.37/hr

    I heard from a couple of others doing it that the airport part of this business is solid money for the drivers.

    I can see how it could be easy money. Last time I flew a few weeks ago, I got caught during a “surge” time. When I got off the plane, my fare would have been about $24. By the time I had gotten my bags, the fare jumped to over $50 for both Uber and Lyft. I waited a bit and it did drop, but I still ended up paying $39, which is $15-$20 more than I usually pay. I live about 14 miles from the airport. You catch a few surge fares, and the money can add up quick.

    I've considered doing this for quite some time. I have a buddy I work with that does it for Lyft and says it really is easy money.

    With that said I'm not certain I can let someone I have never met in my backseat these days. I know that the incidents are rare and what not but the service is still too new for me. Call me jaded I suppose.

    I deliver with Uber Eats on Saturday’s and Sunday’s. I total maybe 12 hours of driving between the 2 days. I’m typically bringing in anywhere from $150-200 a weekend.

    I often wandered if it was prosperous at the airport, they have a ride share lot just behind the cell phone lot, that lot is packed with so many ride share drivers.
