Frequently Asked Questions

Which Is the Best Rideshare Service, Uber or Lyft?

This comes down to personal preference. Neither Uber nor Lyft pays its drivers hourly, so you'll have to set your schedule to earn money, especially a full-time income. Lyft pays slightly more, but services like Uber Black are bridging the gap.

How Can I Deliver with Uber Eats?

It's easy! Open the Uber driving app, scroll to the map screen, and access the status bar. Next, go to "Settings and Driving Preferences," then "Deliveries." Turn on Uber Eats there.

Do I Have to Send in Another Application to Deliver with Uber Eats?

No, you don't. New drivers accepted by Uber can turn on Uber Eats access to start delivering food.
