"Hey there, Brett here again with Ridester.com.

With Labor Day weekend behind us, I hope you saw increased demand and a good payout heading your way this week. After our recent earnings surveyfound Uber drivers earning less than $10/hr after expenses, I know the boost is much needed.

As Uber and Lyft have evolved, they've solved plenty of problems. However, one problem they haven't been able to solve is the "Last Mile".

In other words, in the transportation industry the phrase "Last Mile" refers to the distance that's too long for passengers to walk, but too short for drivers to give a ride. Passengers can get a ride across town, but sometimes they're left walking the short distance that drivers don't want to drive.

The solution? Another weird (but super helpful) idea to come out of California... electric scooter rentals.

If you're a driver looking for extra cash, or somebody in need of a cheap and quick ride, electric scooter rentals are for you.

This is a hot trend right now, so we've put together some guides to show you how to use the service, and how to earn some quick cash by picking up and charging scooters. Check them out:
