How to maximise your earnings as a rideshare driver

Updated: Oct 23, 2023

There are many benefits of being a rideshare driver such as a flexible schedule, work-life balance, quick start, ongoing support, and the opportunity to meet new people and see new places.

However, making money is the primary goal.

There are two major ways to maximise earnings as a rideshare driver:

1. Increase your income.

2. Control your expenses.

When a driver increases their income and doesn't worry about controlling expenses, they may be working much harder and not seeing the result they hope for in their bank account.

If a driver controls expenses yet doesn't look at strategies to increase income, they are missing opportunities to maximise earnings.

The biggest impact on your earnings comes when you focus on both income and expenses.

There are many areas to target if you want to increase your income, but focusing on picking the perfect time and location and improving your customer ratings should be paramount.

High ratings as a rideshare driver are crucial not only because they improve your general performance, but also because they increase your chance of accessing bonuses.

When driving with SLYYK, we want drivers to have a voice too. This is why we have implemented a two-way rating system to increase your performance and establish trust for future passengers.

Both drivers and passengers will be required to rate each other on a 5-star scale,1 star being poor and 5 stars being excellent at the end of the trip. You’ll be prompted to comment on the trip as well.

To control your expenses, the first thing you should do is know your needs.

Pack your meals before you start driving. Make sure you have water and snacks in your car to save time and money on takeout. A healthy diet is an effective way to prevent driver fatigue.

Memorise or research public toilets before your shift so you know exactly where to go when you need a break.
