My dealership is interested in paying all Uber/Lyft drivers in our market a finders fee for every customer they refer to us who buys a vehicle.  Is there a way to easily contact all Uber/Lyft drivers in our market?  Do you need to do it through Uber/Lyft corporate or is there a way to locate drivers through public records?

    No, one person's work or employment status will not be a part of the public records. The drivers are also 1099 so you have even less chance of coming across a list. Uber and Lyft will certainly not release a list.

    So the way would be to advertise or be involved in community forums  and organically I think. It sounds like a good opportunity though. These rideshare drivers do sure go through their cars. Something like 50~60K miles a year.

      Yeah, Uber drivers should be advertising all kinds of stuff.  Constantly in public's eyes.

    Wait I don't understand, you want me to refer my riders to you or other drivers? Why do you think my riders want to bu ya vehicle from you?

      People want to buy vehicles various reasons. For a business it is about getting the word out. I think it's creative to have drivers, who are always in front of people and around other drivers whose vehicles are their livelihood, become a new channel to advertise your dealership.

      For drivers, it's an opportunity to make a little cash, i.e. finder's fee.  Nothing wrong with that.

      (PS. Come to think of it, there are so many things drivers can do, other than driving, that are super useful. Being constantly out on the road, interacting with people, watching the streets, etc.)

    So you want drivers to send your car dealership business, even though car dealerships will NOT work with drivers to finance a car for rideshare?

      We have financed many ride share drivers.  Looking for a car?  😌

        No thanks.  Don't need any more vehicles at the moment, with a 2016 Altima as my work car, a 2015 535i as my personal vehicle, and  a 2015 RX350 at my home out of state.  

        For most drivers, if vehicles are financed, they're almost all subprime, large down required, or require co signs.  Sadly, many drivers will still take the bait out of desperation.
