The Rideshare Guide: Everything You Need to Know about Driving for Uber, Lyft, and Other Ridesharing Companies Paperback – April 24, 2018
Enhance your purchase
In less than five years, ridesharing has grown from nonexistence into a billion dollar industry. Uber now has two million drivers in the United States, Lyft has seven hundred thousand, and both show no signs of slowing down. Despite the large number of drivers, Uber and Lyft provide little in the way of help for new drivers, who complain that there is a lack of guidance when starting out.
Harry Campbell, founder and director of The Rideshare Guy blog and podcast and a driver himself, can help. The Rideshare Guide offers a comprehensive and engaging handbook for current and prospective rideshare drivers. Learn how to:
- How to get started as a driver.
- What it’s like to give your first ride.
- Decide between Uber and Lyft
- Maximize passengers and profits
- Maintain a five-star rating
- Keep safe and interact appropriately with passengers
- Navigate legal matters and tax codes
- How to maximize your profits.
- And more!
Campbell explains these and much more, also including funny, shocking, and bizarre tales from the road. Whether you are thinking about becoming a driver or a veteran wondering about UberPool and tax help, The Rideshare Guide by the Rideshare Guy has the answers.

This book is well organized and I can see the value in the recommended apps, especially Stride Tax. My 2nd night driving, I actually picked up an employee of Stride at the airport and took him to his hotel downtown! Harry, Noah says hi...lol. Stride works great for logging all my miles and I drive looking for riders most anywhere I go now, if I have time to go out of my way. If I get someone on the way to the grocery store, I'll go get them and continue on my errands later (when I have the time... that way my miles are deductible...I am LOOKING for work!)
The book is filled with typical things you would want to know if you're just starting in rideshare. And then it goes on to advanced topics in driving and mobility.
I appreciate Harry's generosity in mentioning other bloggers by name, and complimenting their work. He goes into great detail on subjects like Uber Quest, and even concludes with a thoughtful, reasoned analysis of how human and AV cars can coexist. Cant wait to see you on the bestsellers list.
