Early Thoughts on Driving for Lyft

As a means of making income while I learn a new trade, I decided to become a Lyft driver. Now, after a month of legwork, I’m finally driving. After a few days of driving, these are some early and brief impressions of what it’s like to be a driver.

It is clear that there is much more strategy involved in driving than I expected. I thought I would be pinged with ride requests pretty often while I was out driving, but that’s not the case. Being in the right place at the right time is important, and not easy.
