Is RideShare Driving Worth It?

Over the next 7 weeks, around 48 days. I’m going see if Rideshare driving is worth it. I have drove for Uber and Lyft in the past for a quick buck for vacations, kids school activities and a time when I was layed off to help pay the bills. This time I’m handling it differently.

This time I’m approaching Rideshare driving as a Rideshare business owner. What that means I will figure out other ways to make money on the Rideshare platform, other than driving. I will talk about that more later.

I’m going to be using my 2015 Chevy Malibu that has got me up down the road every week for the past 3.5 yrs. I averaged about 32,000 miles per year on my weekly commute between Dallas and Austin over the past 3.5 years. I’m no longer doing that commute.

I’m going to work 20 – 25 hrs per week on the RideShare business. I plan to spend the majority of the hours driving and the remaining time will be spent figuring out how to generate income through the RideShare platform. More on that later.

Because I have other things going on now. I will only be driving Thursday evenings, Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday. Weekend driving will be done during the day. The only thing I don’t like about this schedule is I can’t work Monday mornings which is a prime-time to drive. I don’t have total control over my schedule right now. That will change.

My goal is to generate $4000 per month through the Rideshare platforms by only driving 20 – 25 hours per week.

I’m excited and look forward to sharing the journey with you.
