What is your NET pay from ride share?

I doubt that, $700 - $800 per week net means you work 80-90 hours.

Cab Drivers in Vegas net 27% of the book plus tips, rideshare nets 6% of revenue (no tips for Uber) unless you cheat by accepting cash rides, not paying your taxes or long term expenses. Cash rides mean you have no insurance WHEN you have an accident.

Go back to page 49, first post... I posted screen caps of my payout and the hours required for it. 52 hours and my take home was over 1,000. Rideshare nets 75% if you don't drive enough to get the driving bonuses. I usually get the bonuses unless I am doing side work.

I usually work 2-3 short days (3-4 hours) then I work max hours on Friday and Saturday. Then I'll do another short day on Sunday.

And then there are the cash tips which DO NOT require taking cash rides. I've never taken a cash ride with lyft.

On top of that, we get the same payouts at strip clubs and massage parlors and liquor stores as the cab drivers do.

I don't have to wait in a long line, in a filthy cab, to get a 5 dollar ride from one hotel to another.
I pull up, wait a minute, in my clean and comfortable car, and get a ride. And since my car isn't filthy, and I'm not ripping people off with outrageous fares, I get tipped well. I don't have to fight with my passengers to get them to pay. I don't have to worry about passengers running out without paying.


Cabs are a horrible service. Even cab drivers won't take a cab. I know because I pick up dozens of cab drivers. I hear all the horror stories from passengers that couldn't find the hidden pick up spot at the airport, the one the cab companies conspired with the airport to locate, so they have to take a cab and they always regret it. They get long hauled. They get scared for their life because cab drivers have zero accountability for their actions.

Lyft and Uber are superior services it's only a matter of time before cabs go out of business. I am honestly amazed that cabs are still running right now. If not for all the people that live in nowhere USA, you would be out already.

And in case you forgot, I drove cabs here. I know how bad it is.

Do you think most of us care one bit about this?

Just paid $11 for an Uber ride that I have taken in a cab a few times. Was a $20 fare plus had to pay that obnoxious $3 fee for a credit card. Why would anyone care about your livelihood if it cost them double to do so?

Ride share companies are loosing dollars by the billions. If you look at one of my posts just above a few , you will see a quoted article that states that Uber has a 1% chance of making it the next few years!

-Let's do the weekly math:

Car Payment $150.00

Ins. $100.00

Fuel $100.00

Taxes $195.50

Healthcare Ins. $150.00

Vehicle replacement fund $100.00

Breakdown fund $50.00

Your NET (take home) is $304.50 or $7.61/hr based on a 40 hour work week.

-Do you pay taxes on your tips? Vegas Cab Drivers pay a 23% tip tax to Uncle Sam

-In cash payment I meant customers without an app. pay the ride share driver a cash payment for the ride....OFF APP.

-If one has to wait in a long cab line, take it up with the hotel.

-I don't drive a dirty cab. My cab is a 2017 Genesis.

-Cab Drivers take rideshare because we can't afford cabs anymore. Rideshare has taken 10,000 Cab Drivers Statewide and 54,000 of their own drivers and reduced them to at or below minimum wage folks.

-Cabs don't 'surge price' such as convention center to the Encore (across the street) $70.00. EDC to the strip, $400.00.

-Cabs didn't surge price after the two recent terrorist attacks in the UK, Uber did.

Uber criticized for surge pricing after London terror attack - Jun. 4, 2017

Rideshare in Vegas is waiting for Cab Companies to start leasing. On a recent trip to San Francisco I wanted to try Uber, all three times a cab showed up. Good luck!

Uber is loosing money because of the increased cost of their information technology side, which is their real business.

How much did you pay in fees on the Uber ride. Booking fee, etc.

Why would it matter what the breakdown of the fee is? The customer paid $11 and that is all that matters. As a customer I don't care if $5 goes to the driver and $6 goes to UBER. I do care that $11 came out of my pocket instead of the $23 that would have gone to a taxi.

It's $11 PLUS fees.
