You should really only be working when the 1.3x+ buffs are going on (Fri/Sat/Sun). Also you're an independent contractor so you need to file at the end of the year.

I did it on a CBR250.
It's small enough that you can lane split when traffic is not moving.
Faster than a bike.
Gas costs nothing.
Park on the sidewalk like a scumbag/ electric scooter driver.

You can make some good coin if you hustle.
If you try to find an actual parking that's legal you'll burn hours.
Exactly I use a Mazda 3 and it's really complicated to find parking in Montreal everywhere even not in downtwon. The construction here is brutal with road closures everywhere and then there are thousands of detours a day. What I dont like about UberEats is that sometimes I am in a place where there are a lot of restaurants and they send me to a restaurant like 20 minutes away from my location which just does not make sense. Wasted a lot of gas for nothing....

Exactly, how does it work? Do you know how far the restaurant and customer is from your current location and the amount you will make before ...or after ....you accept to take on the delivery?

Uber eats on a bike is easy. If you get an ebike you will make way more with no sweat involved. I am saving for one now.
I only ride on peak times and it's supplemental income.
If you want uber driver advise look up "Martin dasco uber" on Google. He is a pro wrestler "the Latin lover" at my friend santino Marella (wwe) school. He is a real entrepreneur and did a whole ebook on his uber experience in a car. https://therideshareguy.com/rsg034-mart ... oves-uber/

I'm going to do a $250 daily challenge with UberEats. I will be using a car. I will start at 8AM and won't stop until I've netted 250$ for that day. I'll update my results in a week.

I suggest you do it in 1.3 X Zone but away from Downtown core to avoid horrible traffic, I also would stay away from McDOnalds as they take 15+ minutes to prepare food during peak hours. If you do get one, i suggest you go to the counter right away and ask them if someone is preparing your order. Also try doing late night as traffic will be less and you ill still get good orders. Sundays i the busiest day.

I started doing UberEats in Toronto. So Far worked 3 days and I've made $193.25 in 14 hours online :O
I started 3 week today and made over 500.00. I only work from 4:00 pm week days and Saturdays from lunch for a few hours and then late Saturday evening. I cover Brampton

I just started cycling yesterday and am averaging over $20.00 based on the time riding for uber trips. I keep hearing about Boosts and Surges but have seen no promotions. Do these happen on a regular basis? Do all riders get the same promotions?

so, how much did you guys make?

"I made $500 over 1 month" does not answer anything.


Lets get some specifics..

e.g.: I made $500, after doing ubber eats only on Saturday/Sunday, for 4 hours on each day, for DAY XX, XX, XX, XX, XX.

That's the kind of data I want.
