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 TNCs diversifies your income streams and spreads out the risk.
I am not beholden to any of the services, and I drive for both Uber and Lyft. I also drove for Sidecar before they went out of business. 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, drive yourself crazy.
