    I live the next city over from your profile location lol. Grew up in WB and currently live around 9/Inkster.

    Why not regular Uber? I keep both Uber X and Uber Eats on and 95% of calls are for Uber X....Also keep Lyft on at same time and usually take whichever beeps first.

    You should join the Facebook group "Uber Drivers of Metro Detroit / Ann Arbor" if you are on Facebook.

    How is this Uber eats promotion video related to PRIME? Just curious. I live in such a rural area, never used Uber or Lyft or anything like that. Don't even know how it works. Sorry for a dumb question.o_O

    Oh, I see. Thank you for the clarification. But just to comment on the profitability, I have to wonder how much of time was spent driving that much.

    About 40 hours a week. The reason why I am doing uber eats is to pay off my credit card debt from all the balance transfers that expire at the end of the year

    I prefer not to have people in my car, too much work keeping the car clean inside

    He can't anyways, Uber requires your car to have at least 5 seats, right?

    Wow! That's a full-time job. I guess if that makes the ends meet it might be better than scheduled work. Good luck on paying off your debt.

    Was it a first or second Gen? I think they added the 5th seat to the 2nd Gen like they are doing with the 2020 Prime.
