    I think to really make this article valuable, you should deduct the cost of fuel used so people get a better idea of “true earnings”. This is the one thing that hurts most, particularly in Toronto. I won’t even mention the cost of things like brakes and tires and depreciation of vehicle.

    1. Jay

      And …
      – Depreciation of the vehicle (guess Uber requires you a car less than 5 yrs old)
      – Insurance
      – Traffic Tickets
      – Car maintenance
      – Idle time for car repairs or if involved in accidents

      I guess Uber driver makes less than the new min hourly wage at high risk

  2. John

    After minus car brakes, rotors, oil change, tires, other mechanical maintenance expense, car washes, food expense, coffee, tea, monthly finance fee, gasoline. People who take public transportation and work 36.50 hr multiply 52 weeks minus 3 holidays plus statutory weeks equal $25,039 minimum salary annually able to save at least $23,000 minus public transportation. Uber driver barely able to survive never mind about saving money.

    Hahahha, on average they earn anywhere from $200 to $1000 a week. This is the same as saying on average they make between $0 and $2000. You were a project manager?

    i work far from home live in hamilton work in toronto.
    usually hit the road around 5 am to 5:30 am
    7 out of 10 times are people going to the airport in the morning which depending on where i pick them up its average 28 to 40 bucks.
    i set my work destination which limits the rides but i remove it once im closer to work
    but the airport is about 35-40 mins from my house so within that 40 mins i make at least $28
    once in a while as i drop them off i pick up another rider from the airport
    today i dropped someone to airport from burlington $40 + $8 tip. soon as i dropped them off picked up someone from the airport arrivals going to markham $33. time online 1h.22 mins.
    i made it to work in time do my 9-5 and open uber after that. yesterday after work i made $56 for 2 rides one from oakville to burlington. one from burlington to go station in hamilton.
    i do this on the side i cant say i get good rides everyday but im averaging 300-400 a week doing it on the side i do 80km one way to work and vice versa hence the long rides i guess
