What happens when you get paid to drive?
Posted April 05, 2019 07:07:16What happens when a young entrepreneur gets paid to take an Uber or Lyft ride?
The answer depends on how the reward is calculated.
Uber or Lyft is an online service where riders can hail a car and pay a cash fare.
It charges a fee for the ride.
Ridesharing has exploded in popularity since Uber launched in the United States in 2016.
Some drivers who have signed up for the service have made more than $50,000.
Uber is also paying out cash for drivers to pick up passengers on the Uber app.
The amount of cash a driver is paid depends on the distance travelled.
Drivers who earn more than a certain number of trips per month get more money.
“When you get the cash reward for being an Uber driver, it can be pretty lucrative,” said Kevin B. Stiles, a partner at investment bank BMO Capital Markets.
How much money does a driver earn?
For each trip a driver takes, Uber and Lyft take a percentage of the fare.
For example, if a driver drives 10 trips in a month and picks up an average of 8 passengers, he or she would earn $200.
For drivers who earn less than $100,000, they receive a smaller amount.
In addition, Uber charges a driver $1 per mile of travel.
Lyft charges drivers a minimum of $1 for each trip.
For every trip, drivers earn a flat fee of $10.
At the end of each month, drivers have a choice of which rides they want to take.
On top of that, drivers are able to opt out of receiving the $1 bonus.
If drivers opt out, Uber will pay them a small sum to offset their expenses.
What happens if the Uber or LYFT driver gets paid less than he or her normal salary?
A driver who earns less than the $100 amount can choose to make a small payment of $50 to offset the difference.
That means the driver will earn $60, which is lower than what they would earn if they were earning $100.
However, drivers who do not make more than the minimum earn $250, so they earn more money than if they stayed at the $50 level.
Is Uber or Rideshared driving illegal?
No, Uber or rideshared drivers are allowed to drive in some states.
However, some states, such as Washington, D.C., and California, ban the use of ridesharing vehicles.
States can also restrict drivers who use Uber or other similar services.
Does the Uber, Lyft, or RIDEShared driver need a driver’s license to work?
Under federal law, drivers must be at least 21 years old.
A Driver’s License Act requires drivers to pass a background check and pass drug and alcohol tests.
If the driver is found to have drug or alcohol problems, the driver can be fired.

What if I get paid for taking Uber or a rideshare?
If you get a bonus, you are still owed a small amount of money for your work, Stiles said.
But if you lose your license, you’re still owed about $50 in cash for the trip.
After you lose a license, a driver has to pay his or its share of the cost of a driver training course and training fees, Stile said.
What if a company charges me more than I’m owed?
Some companies will tell drivers they owe more than they are paid.
They can tell drivers that they have to pay them for their work or face criminal charges.
And, in some cases, they can charge drivers more than their wages are worth.
Many drivers who get paid more than minimum wage get a refund, Stilters said.
