How much do Uber and Lyft drivers make in Chicago?

Uber and other rideshare drivers set their own hours and can work as much or as little as they want, as long as it is permitted by law.  Hence, how much drivers make depends on how much they drive.  Drivers keep the majority of the fare and the rest goes to the rideshare company that collects commissions and booking fees.

In Chicago, IL, Uber drivers make about $17.14 per hour before expenses, compared to the national average of $16.02, according to a survey including 995 drivers (other cities/source). When considering expenses, as a rule-of-thumb, many drivers use $1.00 per mile as their net profit.
