Have you been looking for a way to make decent extra money, on your own time? Your personal vehicle is the answer to your prayers. I have been a ride share driver for the past year, and thoroughly enjoy it! I love meeting new people every day.
As long as you keep your car clean, can pass a background check, have a valid driver’s license and good driving record, you can most likely drive for a ride-share company.
There is no minimum amount of hours you have to work, and you just go “online” and “offline” whenever you want.
They both also have a “destination filter” that can be used twice a day. This feature allows the driver to pick someone up going in your general direction, so that you get paid for as many miles as possible (example: earn money while driving to/from your regular job).
Both companies have programs to help you either buy or rent a car (if you are in a city where this feature is offered).
Driving during big local events is when you will make the most money, due to surge pricing. There is definitely a strategy to making decent money from ride-sharing. If you decide to be a ride share driver, send me an email and I will help you master the system!
Requirements: Be at least 21 years of age, have at least one year of driving experience in the U.S. (3 years if you are under 23 years old), use an eligible 4-door vehicle, and own a smartphone.
If you are unable to become a driver, but are interested in using ride-share for transportation, here’s a ride credit for your first ride!! **Ride credit must be used within 14 days or it expires**
As always, feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions about ride share!! I’m here to help!!
