    I think to really make this article valuable, you should deduct the cost of fuel used so people get a better idea of “true earnings”. This is the one thing that hurts most, particularly in Toronto. I won’t even mention the cost of things like brakes and tires and depreciation of vehicle.

      And …
      – Depreciation of the vehicle (guess Uber requires you a car less than 5 yrs old)
      – Insurance
      – Traffic Tickets
      – Car maintenance
      – Idle time for car repairs or if involved in accidents

      I guess Uber driver makes less than the new min hourly wage at high risk

    After minus car brakes, rotors, oil change, tires, other mechanical maintenance expense, car washes, food expense, coffee, tea, monthly finance fee, gasoline. People who take public transportation and work 36.50 hr multiply 52 weeks minus 3 holidays plus statutory weeks equal $25,039 minimum salary annually able to save at least $23,000 minus public transportation. Uber driver barely able to survive never mind about saving money.
