How Can I Maximize My Earnings as an Uber Driver?
Here are four ways to maximize your earnings as an Uber driver:
Drive Where The People Are
If you are driving on the freeway and there are no houses around or shopping centers around, then you probably won’t be getting a ping. Always be moving toward people. In the mornings, you want to be where people are leaving their houses or apartments and heading into work. In the late afternoon, you want to be where people are working so you can pick them up and take them home.
Get Long Rides When Traffic Is Light
During midday and on the weekends, traffic tends to be lighter. This is a great time to take long rides so you can rack up the mileage, and thereby boost your earnings. You can also use the Uber destination filter.
