Sorry to hear it’s been slow at work. The average salary of an Uber driver in Akron, Ohio is around $40,000 with a likely range of $31,000 to $51,000 per year.
According to Glassdoor, most Uber drivers in Akron, New Jersey make about $26 per hour with a likely range of $20 to $30 an hour. This is better than the average Lyft driver salary, which is around $36,000 with a likely range of $30,000 to $44,000** per year.
Your salary will be based on trip fares as well as customer tips. If you have a reliable car, this could be a great way to supplement your income. Don’t forget to factor in the costs of being a rideshare driver, like gas and wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also have to pay self-employment taxes on your earnings since Uber drivers are independent contractors of the company.
