Harry here. Many new drivers may think they have to push themselves to accept every ride while they’re online, but it can pay to be picky. Today, Atlanta Xcelence offers us a guest post from a relatively new driver’s perspective. AX has been driving in Atlanta for six months, and he’s going to discuss what you should consider before accepting a ride request.
It’s 5 a.m. and you’ve received a request that is 12 minutes away. Traffic is very light, and you guess it’s about 8-10 miles away. Should you accept it? Should you wait until a closer request comes in?
Well, it depends. After driving for a little over 6 months for both Uber and Lyft, I wanted to share 8 critical factors to consider before accepting a ride request. Let’s dive into this example and see what you should look for to help save you time and money.
