Most regular jobs would never allow you to work for a competitor, but one of the best parts about being an independent contractor for Uber or Lyft is that you can and should drive for multiple companies. We know that close to 2/3 of all drivers are working for at least two on-demand services, so this isn’t exactly a secret, but it hasn’t always been that easy to actually do this out on the road. That’s all changed though because of a new app called Mystro.
I first heard about Mystro a few months ago and have been addicted to it ever since. According to their website, ‘Mystro is an app that makes on-demand drivers more money by allowing them to safely and easily drive for multiple on-demand platforms and never miss a trip they want.’ It’s a pretty simple idea, but it also solves a pain-point that drivers have had for a long time!
Savvy drivers know that when demand is slow, it pays to go online with both Uber and Lyft in order to increase your chances of getting a request. But this process can be burdensome since you’ll have to physically go online with the first app, then go online with the second app and once you get a request, you have to accept it and then log off the other app before you get a new trip. And sometimes you get another request before you can log off the second app. Huge hassle! Luckily, Mystro does all of this automatically for you.
Mystro recently came out of beta and is available for Android only at the moment. If you’d like to sign up using our affiliate link, please click here. Otherwise, read on for more info about how it all works!
