Taxi Driving Jobs in Detroit vs. Driving with Uber
Driving a taxi or cab has been a job for a long time in Detroit – over 100 years! It sounds old fashioned now, but–as far as jobs go–driving taxicabs used to be one of the only ways to get paid for driving.
Today, technology expands the ways to earn money from the driver’s seat. For example: Uber is a very popular way to get paid weekly for driving your own car on your schedule. A lot of former taxi drivers have decided to work for themselves and become self employed. These ex-taxicab drivers are choosing Uber for a few reasons:
- No Shifts
- No Upfront Costs, Bond Plates or Leasing Fees
- More Safety
- No Stress
Unlike old-fashioned taxicab jobs, it’s easy to apply to partner with Uber and to set your own schedule.
