Do Uber Drivers Make More Money Than You?

Ever wonder if you should quit your 9-5 and become an Uber or Lyft driver?

Thanks to analysis done by SherpaShare, you can now get a pretty accurate idea of how much money Uber & Lyft drivers bring home and make that decision for yourself. If you’re living in New York City, it might not be a bad idea.

Though Uber reported in 2014 that an UberX driver working full-time hours in NYC averaged a little over $40 an hour, price cuts in January 2015 may have contributed to new findings that the number is actually closer to $30 an hour. That’s still pretty damn good! If you’re working 40 hours a week and making $30 an hour, that puts you at a yearly salary of over $62,000. Not to mention, you have the flexibility of choosing your own hours and picking which days to work.

New York City has a high margin above other cities, as most average between $10-14 an hour. Check out what your city typically makes below.
