Knowing that Covid is airborne has changed the game. If you are driving with open space between yourself and a passenger you are creating an environment in which you are more exposed and the customer may feel uncomfortable leading to worse rating and fewer rides.
Although you may not be physically interacting with your rider they may not feel safe in your car without sanitizer. Some people may bring hand sanitizer with them everywhere but 5 star drivers bring sanitizer for their riders.
Data has shown that there are still rides for drivers to pick up in NYC. Although the city may look empty if you are driving down Madison Ave at 3:00pm Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx have all had an increase in the number of riders.
Although a large number of workers are either remote or only visiting the office part time there is also a drop in public transit user. Hospitals, University Labs, Grocery Stores, Dental Offices, Data Centers, Airports, and Farmers Markets are all open and their staff is more than likely commuting using ride share rather than jumping on the L train.
Uber has opened up their Uber Eats platform for registered Uber Drivers. That means that during a slow night, say Tuesday, you can earn a little extra waiting for rides rather than counting the seconds in between 10pm and 6am – which is 28800 seconds, from experience.
With fewer riders requesting rides you want to make sure you are able to accept any ride regardless of what app your customer uses. Lyft currently is accepting new drivers onto their platform and a Buggy Specialist can work to help you register for all available networks.
With a shift in riders from commuters to pleasure seekers the weekend is when those rides start to surge. Data shows currently the most profitable time to drive is from Thursday and Monday night. So, maybe it’s time to rethink what days you take off.
The Buggy app has the ability to steam line your business through viewing your weekly invoices, making payments, scheduling returns, and so much more!
With everyone on edge right now sometimes just asking your customer how they are can create a safer environment through engaging in small talk. It also makes it easier for a rider to give you more stars after letting them know who you are! n
