How much do Uber drivers make in Eugene, Oregon?

I know that Uber usually pays better in big cities, but I’m not sure if Eugene is big enough. Would I make any money driving for Uber in Eugene, Oregon?

A great question! Uber drivers in Eugene, Oregon make an average of $35,000 to $40,000 per year, provided that they work full-time. This is pretty average compared to many other cities in the United States.
If you want to earn more money from your Uber job, you’ll need to optimize your driving time. This means hitting the streets in the late evening as people finish dinner, at night on weekends as people head home from a night out, or on holidays like New Year’s and St. Patrick’s Day. You can also drive more during undesirable weather events (like rain or extreme cold), and when any large events are being hosted in your hometown.
It’s also a good idea to drive close to large transportation centers, like airports, greyhound bus stops, and train stations, as people will call Ubers to get to their homes or hotels. This is a good strategy if you have to drive during the day, which is otherwise a slower time.
