About Ridester.com

My name is Brett Helling and I’ve worked in the rideshare space since 2014. I started driving for Uber and Lyft in 2014 in Omaha, NE, and now I run Ridester.com full-time.

I started the site so I can dedicate my time to helping other rideshare drivers and delivery drivers maximize their income potential. I recognize the freedom that comes with working as an independent contractor, and I want to help other people experience that freedom.

Ridester started out as a humble blog with just a couple of writers, but we’ve grown into a full team of contributors with decades of combined experience in the gig economy.

As the rideshare industry and Ridester.com continue to grow, we hope our community continues to grow with us.

If there’s a topic you think we should cover, or if you want to contribute to the website, send us a message! We love hearing from our readers and we’re always looking for ways to provide more value on Ridester.

Thanks for visiting.
