Harry here. A lot of people get into rideshare looking to make a few hundred bucks a week, which is great. But unlike other jobs, there is a lot of variability with this line of work and the top drivers can make significantly more than the bottom. Today, RSG contributor (and spreadsheet master) Bill Tesauro examines what a top driver in the Las Vegas market can make. And believe it or not, this Vegas driver actually makes most of his money with Lyft, not Uber.
Recently RSG reader Mike M reached out to us about his experience as a full time rideshare driver in Las Vegas, NV. Today we’d like to share his story with you alongside how his average net earnings topped $1,056 a week over 44 weeks! That’s a total of $46,464.
Mike first became interested in Uber & Lyft about 2 years ago as a secondary income stream alongside his full time cubicle gig and night job slinging bags at McCarran Airport. But the taxi authority stepped in near the end of 2014 to shut it down. Luckily, September 2015 rolled around and rideshare was legally back!
