Interesting fact: Uber drivers get 60 cents per-mile, and 18.5 cents per-minute. So for short trips you will pay less than an Uber costs, but more than the driver would make for operating his comfortable, clean vehicle (remember the $1 activation for these). Uber and Lyft aren't side hustles, they're straight-up hustling their drivers.

We know about these, they're already blocking sidewalks.
