    Pros

    Set your schedule; you can work around another job or school. In nearly 4k rides, I have had only three problems: an "impactful" encounter with a deer, a hit and run accident while carrying passengers, and a lady who had way too much celebration for her birthday. I have always felt safe. It's your car, your rules. Hub base is helpful.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are given rides to places 50+ miles away; it is up to you if you want them. You must carry separate ride-share insurance. Lyft has increased its take of fees charged to almost 50% and gas right now is expensive. Sometimes you get ride after ride, and it is hard to take breaks.

    Pros

    Company is a rip off high gas mileage poor driver support don’t respond only chat options you can be getting killed they would not care money scams

    Cons

    Rental car is a gimmick you have to drive hours almost a week to cover the rental fee they take your tips and bonus and apply it to the rental so you are lock in by driving and making money for them the least is about 1200. a month includes insurance you can drive unlimited as long as you are on the app for at least 12hrs you are putting up with disgusting evil people who are missable they never respond to your safety and they will deactivate you without prior warning if anyone makes a false comment you have to prove that they are wrong before they restore your app worst they charge you .75 a mile times the mileage for each trip you go far and only make about 25.00 they do not tell you how much money they are getting from your trips in order to make income you have to drive 12hour 7 days a week otherwise it’s less than minimum wage after you pay for gas insurance, maintenance these ride share company are the worst you put high mileage on your car and they don’t cover the expense
