Can I drive a pickup truck for Uber? I do have an extended cab, i.e. backseats.

    Remember the single biggest expense of a Uber or Lyft driver is the gasoline. Driving a large car will sure cut into your profits.  There is a reason UberX drivers drive the Focus and Prius'.  It really makes a huge difference.

    Remember, to drive Uber fulltime, you would be driving 1000 miles a week.  Do the math.

      yes, do the math.  F150 at best gets 20mpg in a city driving.  50,000 miles a year.  That's 50,000 / 20 = 2500 gallons, which at $3.00 is $7500.

      Comparatively, a Toyota Prius at 58mpg?  50000 / 58 = 862 gallons, which at $3.00 is $2500.

      That's a $5000 a year difference.

    Someday once Uber offers UberPickupTrucks, a service dedicated for moving small furniture, I will sign up for Uber with my Tacoma.

    Pickup trucks are allowed on the UBER platform so long as they are a 4-door vehicle with independently opening passenger doors. They should also have enough room and seats to transport at least four passengers. Pickup trucks with rear-hinged doors,hat are dependent on another door being open, are not acceptable. A crew cab truck, with four full-sized doors and two rows of seats, would be acceptable.

    So an extended cab truck with suicide doors isn't acceptable?

    I take UberX almsot daily and have never gotten a pickup truck. This just seems strange to me though I guess you could do it.

      Yeah, I haven't either.  Over 500 rides and not a single one.  Then agian I live in a city.  If I request in middle of corn fields of Iowa, I'd probably get my fair share.

      Not to mention stereotypes but it’s hard to trust people who even thinks of driving Uber with a pickup. Just odd, ya know? Fuel mileage, etc. 

      If there’s UberTruck, sure go for it. I even think that’d be super useful
