To get started as a rideshare driver, you need a car! But not everyone wants to or can use their personal vehicles, which is why Uber and Lyft both have programs offering similar vehicles to drivers. Which program is best for you? Senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur breaks down the main differences between Uber’s Fair rental program and Lyft’s Express Drive.
If you are a full-time rideshare driver (30-40 hours or more per week), you may consider using either Uber or Lyft’s car program with a corresponding bonus rewards program. These programs are particularly advantageous for full-time drivers because the driver does not incur any depreciation on his or her personal vehicle. Both programs offer unlimited mileage. Uber’s program is called Fair and Lyft’s program is called Express Drive.
