How much do Uber drivers make in New Mexico?
My rent just went up substantially and I need to make a few extra bucks a month to feel comfortable. Uber has the flexibility I want, so it seems like a good fit. But how much do New Mexico-based Uber drivers make?

According to Salary.com, Uber drivers in New Mexico earn about $34,400 per year. However, this amount is the average across the state, and you will certainly earn a different amount in a more populated area than in a rural one.
Here are the median annual wages for Uber drivers in some of the biggest cities in New Mexico:
- Albuquerque: $35,300
- Santa Fe: $35,600
- Las Cruces: $32,000
- Rio Rancho: $35,100
Regardless of where you live, you can also increase your earnings as an Uber driver with a few of these tips:
- Find the most affordable rideshare insurance.
- Drive during peak times, such as during sporting events or when bars start to close.
- Bring your meals with you so you’re not tempted to dine out.
- Go the extra mile to get tips.
- Use apps to save money on gas.
