What do drivers prefer: Uber or Lyft?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tdoar57a1_k



ABC15 was paid and sponsored by these ride share companies for sure ....after expenses-- I'm sure it's a lot less than that

This is a growing trend-- hiring people as contractors so they will have to pay all the social security and medicare tax out of pocket - while these companies make huge profits

Make sure you have the right car insurance when working for these ride share companies

You are busier with uber but there are no minimums with them so you will find yourself driving out a bunch for like 4-5$ fares. Lyft is better cause you do make tips and your customers in general are alot better for some reason. Lyft is also a bit more picky about its drivers while uber has hired sex offenders on more than one occasion

From a consumer standpoint I prefer whichever one charges less :)

I saved about $25 one time riding from north jersey to south jersey by using Lyft instead of Uber.

But the rates are always shifting... so I have both installed, and just use whichever costs less a particular point during the day

Lyft is definitely better. Uber is more popular so it attracts more crazies.

When I lived in Texas and I had to use it from time to time, there were two weirdos I rode with and zero with lyft.

I've never been in any of them since they're not in my area yet but from what I've seen on the internet I would choose Uber since I know the most about them, I don't really hear about Lyft but I'd check it out if Lyft ever comes to my area.

I would have to say that more people prefer to drive for Uber, because that's all I see around this half-pony town, other than real cab companies where you earn just as damned much with tips, but have to put up with people calling all the taxi companies in town to see who gets there first.

You can rent out vehicles or use them like delivery vehicles,etc.. There are a lot of these companies popping up now a day-- using people as middlemen (contractors)-- they will pay you the agreed rate and that's it. You are responsible for all liability and expenses.

I don't work for these ride share companies but the companies i work for have similar business model. I just got an email yesterday about how we are a 24/7 company..... so they will send calls at "inconvenience time"

when you not a salaried employee or an hourly employee with graveyard shift-- how many would bother waking up at 2-3 AM to answer a 5-10 minutes call and then go back to sleep? let alone doing that 3-4x through out the night ? they are slave drivers imo. I'll just unplug the phone line when I'm going to bed and plug it back in when I'm ready to take calls.

If you're 1099, you're responsible for yourself, anyway.

I prefer neither as a consumer. I never had the need to use either of these services as I just take public transit whenever I can. Those services are quite expensive for me and I only consider them when I'm in a time crunch or just need convenience, which only happens in very rare cases. Now, as a driver, I think I would prefer to work for Lyft as while I get a lower hourly salary, the tips make up the difference and then some. So realizing that, I would prefer to be working for Lyft.

Never used Lyft and only used Uber once. I prefer my own car really.
