This post orginally appeared on The Rideshare Guy Blog and Podcast but I thought I’d post it here since there are a lot of drivers that don’t realize you can actually increase your income by driving for Lyft and Uber at the same time. Here’s how to do it!
Driving For Lyft
- Sign up to drive for Lyft and get up to $750 depending on the city! (referral link)
- Get up to $20 off your first ride as a passenger
Driving For Uber
- Sign up to drive with Uber and get up to $500 depending on the city! (referral link)
- Get $20 off your first Uber ride when you sign up as a passenger.
If you currently only drive for one TNC, you may be wondering why you would ever want to complicate your life by running two services at once. Well, running two apps at the same time actually increases your chances of getting a request and in turn will increase your earnings.
It’s also a good idea in case there’s a big Uber-like rate drop or one service’s system goes down. Driving for multiple TNC’s diversifies your income streams and spreads out the risk.
I am not beholden to any of the services and I actually drive for the big three: Uber, Lyft and Sidecar. I prefer driving for the one that puts the most money in my pocket and that varies week to week and sometimes, hour to hour.
So, now that you’re convinced, it’s important to have a process and plan in place when you’re out on the road. If you don’t, you will waste time, hurt your acceptance rate and basically, driver yourself crazy. [Read more…]
