So what is Uber and how do I make money???
- Uber is the giant in the rideshare business connecting riders with drivers.
- All you need is an eligible car and a smartphone
- You keep roughly 80 percent of the trip fare which will be different rates from city to city
- Riders can tip you right from the app on their phone
- Uber has multiple levels of service which include: UberX pool, UberX, UberXL, UberSUV, UberBLACK, UberSELECT, UberLUX
What vehicles are eligible?
- Generally speaking you must have a 4 door car or SUV that is 10 years old or newer that seats 4 plus the driver (uber will have to verify you vehicle is eligible once you apply and there are some excluded vehicles)
- Your vehicle must be in good condition and reliable
- To qualify for the UberXL platform you must have a van or SUV that seats 6 plus the driver (these trips pay more!!)
