Some would agree that for part time drivers it is best to drive for Lyft over its competitor Uber. There are certain requirements that must be met to drive for either company. This includes the year of your vehicle that you would be using. The average part time Uber driver earns between $35-$85 per day, while the average Lyft driver can earn between $45-$100 per day. Lyft offers its drivers more promotions and incentives to earn more money while Uber provides more services to the community, such as Uber Eats and Uber Freight.
Did you know that the insurance provided by Uber and Lyft does not cover physical damage or driver injury for you as the driver. The insurance requirements for participating as rideshare driver is different from your normal auto insurance policy. Before signing on to drive, please contact your local agent. One example is a driver's car was damaged while driving a rideshare passenger and the insurance denied the claim. The driver only had personal auto insurance without have a commerical use endorsement. This coverage is inexpensive, if you prepare to drive add this valuable insurance coverage to your current Nevada auto insurance policy.
