How Much Money Do Boston UberX Drivers Make BostInno


I caught an UberX ride out to Somerville. The 4.92-mile trip from Fleet Street in the North End, where my driver picked me up, to Porter Square took just over 16 minutes and cost $14.99 – roughly $12 of which went directly to the driver.

I rode shotgun next to Brian, a native of Guatemala, who told me en route that, for the last two months, he's been making upwards of $300 a night as an UberX driver to supplement part-time shifts at an Italian restaurant in Back Bay.

UberX drivers, Brian explained, pocket 80 percent of each fare while Uber receives the remaining 20 percent.

I can't tell, accounting for gas and time, if this is actually a good deal for the UberX drivers.
