Which cities are the best for Lyft and Uber drivers?
Ride sharing apps have grown from an interesting concept into a multi-billion dollar business, particularly in the United States. Not only do apps like Lyft and Uber give people a transit option that’s more convenient and oftentimes more affordable than taxis, it gives drivers an opportunity to make some decent cash by simply driving people around. But not all cities offer the same amount of opportunity to drives as other do, so which American cities are the best places to be a Lyft or Uber driver?
As one of America’s most alternative transit-friendly cities and the home of both Lyft and Uber, San Francisco seems like the obvious choice, but what about the rest? A financial software company by the name of Zen99 decided to find out by examining numerous factors, including how dependent a city’s population is on cars and how young the average person is, to create this interesting infographic that shows which American cities are the most ride sharing-friendly.
