BRIAN: Want to share with you the experience of this Uber driver. He posted these screenshots of his earnings after driving for one week in August. After deducting car-related expenses and all, the amount left is only S$90 over. Like that, drive Uber is worth it?
I think it’s because there are too many drivers now, so want to earn also difficult. When you go to Orchard Road on a weekend, you can see so many PHV cars there and sometimes looks like more than the number of taxis. If you are thinking of driving Uber/Grab full-time to make a living, maybe you should think twice about it.
(Ed’s note: there are over 33,000 registered private-hire vehicle drivers in Singapore)
Thanks Brian for this letter.
