How much do Uber drivers make in Washington state?

Do Uber drivers in Washington state make a lot of money? Ubering would be a great way for me to earn extra cash without committing to another job, but I’m not sure if it would be worth it financially.

Uber drivers in Washington state make an average of $37,710 to $41,693 per year when driving full-time. However, the exact rate that you make will largely depend on where you’re located, as populated areas offer more opportunities for potential drivers.
Uber drivers in Seattle, for example, make an average of ** $19 to $21 per hour before expenses**. If you live in a rural area, however, you might make closer to $10 per hour due to the decreased demand for Ubers. Of course, it also depends on when and how often you drive, as taking advantage of peak hour surge pricing and Uber’s driving incentives could boost your earnings.
In short, driving for Uber could definitely help you supplement your income, but it may not be the most reliable source of funds in areas that aren’t densely populated. If you really want to make some money by driving for Uber, it’s best to stick to urban and suburban areas, and areas close to major airports.
You’ll also have to consider the costs of gas and wear and tear on your vehicle.
