Uber vs Lyft: What Are The Differences For Drivers? (Part 2: $$$ + Electric Range Issues & Support)

February 22nd, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

I am a part-time driver for Uber and Lyft and rather new to both. I'm also not a normal driver since I drive an all-electric Nissan LEAF that gets 85 to 100 miles on a full charge around town. All information does not fall out the same in this post as it might for full-time or long-time drivers at both or either company. Earnings ability varies, I suspect quite a bit based on location.
