I get a lot of questions about whether or not delivery is better than rideshare driving, and unfortunately the answer is: it depends. But that’s actually good news, because in some cases delivery might be better for you, or rideshare driving may make more sense. To help break it down, senior RSG contributor Christian Perea presents the following infographic, which compares delivery to rideshare driving.

There are a lot of similarities between rideshare and delivery jobs, so it’s important to examine the differences between the two. It’s interesting to compare and contrast rideshare and delivery since there are actually a lot of little things that make these lesser known side-hustles a little bit different. Personally, I find that on certain days I prefer to do one over the other based on how busy it is, what incentives are being offered and whether or not I want to deal with strangers in my car.
Most of us already drive for Uber or Lyft, but I always recommend having a backup plan by also signing up for a delivery company. If you want to start off delivery with a good company, I recommend checking out Caviar since in my experience I end up spending less time waiting at restaurants and they always have the delivery ready for me when I get there (which minimizes downtime).
