  • Here is the full review after he gave it a go for a week. 

    Top Takeaways

    • Pay is comparable but the rideshare bonuses really tilt the scales!  Uber and Lyft pay top drivers up to $500 per week on top of fares just to get them out on the road.

    • Taxi passengers tended to be older, more mature and far more interesting.  Many of them had a strong anti Uber and Lyft bias because of the increased congestion associated with rideshare.

    • The taxi sign-up process is much more onerous even though both rideshare drivers and taxi drivers are doing the exact same job.  Jay had to submit fingerprints, a drug test, online training and even submit a few paper forms.

    • It requires far more skill to be a good taxi driver than a good Uber/Lyft driver.
