Million-dollar math: According to Uber, the median wage for an UberX driver working at least 40 hours a week in New York City is $90,766 a year and $74,191 a year in San Francisco. That means 10 years of work in NYC could earn UberX drivers $1 million. It'd take 13.5 years in San Francisco. That's without the cost of owning an operating a car built in, however.
It will take you twice as long to make a million dollars as UberX, according to Glassdoor reviews.
Hourly Rate: $22.20, according to four driver responses on Glassdoor. A Lyft driver also told Business Insider's Megan Rose Dickey that he makes $800 a week, working five days a week. That's about $42,000 a year.
Amount drivers keep per ride: 80%. Lyft keeps 20%, just like Uber, unless it's during "prime (busy) time" on the app, in which case the drivers keep it all.
Million-dollar math: Assuming drivers work 40 hours a week, they'd have to work 21 or 22 years to make $1 million.
