The average Lyft driver makes $20 per hour, according to a 2018 study. But how much do Lyft drivers make in Phoenix?
The average Lyft driver makes about $20 an hour, according to a 2018 study by the Rideshare Guy blog. That’s based on more than 1,000 responses from drivers across the country (including Phoenix).
It’s also important to remember that your actual earnings will depend on a number of factors, such as how much time you spend driving and whether you drive during peak hours.
Lyft rates are generally higher during peak hours than off-peak times. For example, during rush hour (between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.) the company charges a base fare of $2 plus 20 cents per minute and 1 cent per mile in Phoenix, according to its website. If you work only during busy times, you’ll be able to charge more per ride than if you work during less busy times.
You can also increase your earnings by working longer shifts or accepting more rides than other drivers (if they’re available).
