Harry here. There’s no doubt that driving for Uber and Lyft is a good job for some, but a lot of drivers do end up quitting – there’s no getting around that. Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince takes a look at why so many drivers quit and what are the different stages that can lead to separation.
Well over a year ago, driver churn data from Uber leaked out, which indicated that within a year, over half of all drivers have become inactive or quit. I suspect that number is much higher now, with price cuts over the last few years and other well-documented sources of driver dissatisfaction.
This blog generally provides support to those who are still driving. However, you may be considering, have considered, or are temporarily sitting out on rideshare driving for various reasons. So I thought it appropriate to offer some support to the afflicted – those who are still driving but who are on the path to separation.
