Can you have AAA while being a driver for Uber or Lyft?

I can't seem to find anything on this. I was considering getting it for issues with my car breaking down or general issues on the road. I just don't know if they will cover someone who is driving for Uber or Lyft. Like say I am in the middle of taking someone somewhere and my car breaks down, will they then assist my passenger as well?

Yes, you can. I have it myself. AAA doesn't care if you drive commercially or not. They are a secondary or "complimentary" service that you pay for and it is none of their concern what you use the vehicle for.

You can keep your membership with all privledges without carrying their insurance. The membership is required for insurance, but not the other way around. I used to be an Auto Club representative a long time ago. I'm not too worried about my status with them, having had my home and cars insured there for years. My client (and former boss) was chairman of ACSC and the national AAA boards for a number of years. Plus, I have never driven for any

TNC, nor do I wish to do so. I just want to hear from a representative about their legal right to drop someone for TNC driving.
