The last time we put out a call for record-breaking rides (and earnings), you delivered! James E. shared that he regularly does 130 rides a week, a number we found astonishing (and no else broke!). However, on a recent call for record-breaking rides on our Facebook page, we found one driver who truly shattered the record. RSG contributor Paula Gibbins interviews this Las Vegas driver who gave over 300 rides – in one week! – and how he did it below.
Everyone has their great weeks where they get more rides than they’ve ever had before and earn more money than they anticipated. But what about record-breaking numbers? Let’s take a look at Jason Howard, who completed 304 rides for Lyft in one week and then shattered his own record a couple of weeks later with 331 rides.
Here’s a quick introduction to Jason. He started driving for Lyft in Dallas, Texas on Dec. 31, 2015. He uses the Express Drive program with Lyft to use a vehicle without having the debt of owning his own vehicle. He’s recently moved to the Las Vegas area and that’s where he completed his record weeks.
