Rideshare Drivers: 3 Tips to Avoid Coronavirus

The concern of #coronavirus is on the rise, and rideshare drivers may be at heightened risk due to the amount of contact they have with the general public. Here are three easy tips on how to protect yourself and others.

Use Sanitizing Wipes After Each Passenger Take a few minutes between riders to wipe down door handles, seat belts, headrests and the back of the seats. This quick step can help significantly reduce the chance of virus transmission.

Keep Gloves Handy If you live in or near a major city, chances are you’ll have to pick someone up from the airport at some point. If your rider needs help loading luggage into the car, you may want to use gloves. The virus spreads through infectious droplets, so it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Use Hand Sanitizer One of the best ways to prevent contracting COVID-19 is to make sure you are washing your hands thoroughly. However, when you are on the road, it’s not always that easy to access soap and water. Hand sanitizer is your next best bet. Keeping one in the back for passengers is a good idea, too.

Any female drivers out there??

I can't be all alone! I have loved my experiences with Lyft so far and I have even driven at like 3 in the morning. NONE of my friends will even try it. I think they're scared. They tell me I am nuts. Here's the thing........you have to be smart no matter what in life and know that in your car, at the grocery store, on a train, etc. someone COULD harass you. Don't forget women harass women too. It;'s a sad truth, but this is life. I have been free from that but I am prepared to handle myself if and when someone decided to go that far no matter where I am. We shouldn't let our fear ruin a chance at a job we might love. I really enjoy mine! So any ladies with me???

Looking for feedback

Those of you out there who have driven for Lyft--I would love your feedback, as I am considering doing so to pick up some extra income. What was your experience like? Did you end up having to drive into bad neighborhoods? Did you feel safe? Did you find that most passengers gave decent tips and fair evaluations? Did your passengers mess up or damage your car? Were your earnings worth the time (and car expense) that it took to get them? Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Not sure anymore...help

Honestly, how much money can I make driving? I’m hearing mixed stories from drivers and just this morning I heard Lyft and Uber drivers earn about $3 per/hour after maintenance, insurance, and taxes. I’m not looking to get rich driving but I’m looking for a second income to help me pay down bills. Should I look for a min wage pt job instead?
