A little extra spending money never hurt anybody, right?
According to, you can make an average of $20 an hour driving for Uber in Iowa. If you do it full time, your income can range from $30,000 to $44,000 annually. But it sounds like you’re looking for more of a side gig!
Driving for a rideshare isn’t necessarily the easy money that some might think, so make sure you do some research into working for a rideshare company to decide if it’s right for you.
Make sure you factor in things like car insurance, the cost of gasoline in Iowa, and wear and tear on your car. Depending on these factors, it may or may not end up being the side hustle for you. Good luck!
