An Uber Drivers Week – Saturday

I’m a rugby pundit and Uber driver, this is day 6 of my Uber drivers week where I give you a day by day update on how I’m going. For a full description of this series read the Intro post.

If you’d like to watch rather than read, here’s my video or scroll past to read on how Saturday went.

In my head I’m expecting/aiming to earn $20/hr so for an evening session of 7:30pm-10:30pm $60.

One Off Costs



With a Bledisloe Cup game kicking off at 10pm I was unlikely to get my 3 hours in before then. As it was I could have done another half-hour but as I wasn’t getting trips I headed home. It started great with a trip into town from near home and then another trip soon after heading over the bridge. I could have had a back to back trip then but needed to fill-up with petrol. It then took about an hour to get another trip on the shore and that was only a short one. So I called it a night, if there hadn’t been the rugby on I would have headed into town for another hour or so.

On the costs side of things as I mentioned above I needed to fill-upwith petrol and that’s what that is. Even though I have had a lot of one off costs this week I’m still in the black if not by that much compared to the effort.
