The 8-minute trip cost just $108.98 -- a third lower than the $163.11 charge for an Uber Black ride, and just a tad higher than the basic UberX at $100.35, according to prices offered by Uber Technologies Inc
There are so many factors it is hard to quantify. First you have to be in a market where Uber is well established. Then you have to not have too much competition in other carriers like Lyft or too many Uber drivers. Then your vehicle and the costs associated with it will determine really how much you make. Having an older, nice car, like a Nissan Maxima or Toyota that you have no payments on and are real road warriors is your best bet. Then you have to watch your market for a couple of months to see where the ...
I drove for Uber for more than 2 years. I made them thousands of dollars. I had a high rating (4.92) and no complaints from riders.Two weeks ago, the app stopped working for me.

Is it official? More Uber trips being taken more than taxis now.
Number of medallions control the # of cars in NYC. While number of Ubers continue to climb.
Many drivers like myself drive for multiple companies to reduce downtime. Since Uber recently added trip duration to the ride request timer information do you feel life it is too risky accepting Lyft/Via/Etc requests?Personally I find it quite excellent declining those 10 ++ minute away 1 minute trip rides.
