How much do Uber drivers make in Las Vegas, Nevada?

Do Uber drivers in Las Vegas make a lot of money? I feel like the main strip is a pretty walkable place, but maybe I could make some money driving people from Vegas to other parts of Nevada.

On average, Uber drivers in Las Vegas, Nevada make about $16.00 per hour, or the equivalent of a salary of between $25,000 and $40,000 per year.
This rate is below the national average, meaning that you’ll make less money in Las Vegas as an Uber driver than you would make in the average U.S. city. If you’re strategic, though, you can still make a living by driving for Uber in Las Vegas!
One big factor in determining your rate as a driver, however, is when you decide to drive. If you drive at night, when many people will be out drinking and therefore unable to drive themselves, you’ll make more money in one night. You also will typically make more money on big party weekends (like New Year’s Eve or St. Patrick’s Day) and on warm days when people are more likely to venture out.
In short, if you’re hoping to earn your money in Vegas via Uber, you’ll need to be strategic about which days and what times you drive!
