How Much Money Uber and Lyft REALLY Pays



You won't believe how much money my Excel spreadsheet said I made after 9 hours of driving.

On a whim, I signed up for both Uber and Lyft to see how much net profit I could make. After a long day of driving, I opened Microsoft Excel and entered my gross income and subtracted all my expenses. It gave me a picture of just how lucrative it could be for me to drive for ridesharing apps.
