"make my own schedule🚀"

May 25, 2023 - Driver in Houston, TX


Scheduling flexibility so I have a great Family Work balance


I definitely feel we should receive a higher percentage for the fare seeing as how it’s my vehicle which I fully cover, including my own ride share insurance as well.

Advice to Management

Raise the drivers percentage for the fare🙏🏻

    Nill. Just signed up and visited an orientation at a Pep Boys. Team was nice enough and was easy to understand. No barrier to entry, but be sure your car is on point and resdy for many miles.

    How is the driving record?
