Why do only 5% of Lyft drivers make over $1,000 a month?


I read the statistics recently and I was shocked. I I always assumed the average for monthly income through these services, especially Lyft, was $1,000 but apparently it is $377. It just seems so low all things considered.

Some people don’t realize that working as an Uber or Lyft driver gives you the opportunity earn more money than you would think. Even those who already drive may be surprised at how much more they can make. Some Uber drivers waste time and fuel driving back and forth searching for clients, then complain about low income and say that it’s impossible to make $1,000 a week.

I make around $400 to $500 a month only driving on the weekends. If I didn't work a full time job, I could easily earn $1,000 a week and then some. Most drivers do this part time. I think the average hours for the average driver is something like 8 hours a week.
