Driver Survey: How much do Uber drive Make?  Uber or Lyft? etc.[The Rideshare Guy]

This is an excerpt from The Rideshare Guy's Blog on his driver survey results in 2017.  We took of the main findings.  For the full article, click here.

This year’s survey ended up being one of the largest rideshare driver surveys ever conducted. We received 1,150 total responses from drivers primarily from platforms like Uber and Lyft.  If you filled out the survey, thank you! I personally reviewed every single entry (and yes, it did take a long time) but the feedback was invaluable for me and we were able to uncover some interesting observations and trends for rideshare drivers.  Here’s what we found:

How Much Do Uber Drivers Make?

I’ve always had a problem with the earnings figures that on-demand companies advertise to prospective drivers.  Many drivers end up earning much less than advertised and one of the biggest complaints I hear is that they’re not making enough money.  But just how much is ‘enough’ is obviously up to interpretation.  We found that Uber drivers reported earning $15.68 per hour, but since drivers are also responsible for gas, maintenance and depreciation, that number is likely less.

Lyft Drivers are Happier, Higher Paid and Higher Rated

I’ve always felt that Lyft was the more driver-friendly company and, based off our survey results from drivers who indicated they primarily drive for Lyft, an astounding 75.8% of them were satisfied with their Lyft driving experience compared to just 49.4% on Uber.

We also asked that same group of drivers about their earnings, and they reported averaging around $17.50 per hour or almost $2/hour more than what was reported by Uber drivers.  It should be noted that Lyft drivers can receive tips in the app, and Lyft rates tend to be higher across the board but, like with Uber, drivers are still responsible for their expenses.

Lyft drivers also reported an average rating of 4.88 while Uber was slightly lower at 4.84.

Although a majority of the drivers on our e-mail list are doing multiple services, it should be noted that 75% of drivers indicated that they still primarily drive for Uber.

But Lyft was a close second to Uber when it came to which company drivers prefer to drive for.
