In this article, you will learn how much Uber Drivers make in Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja), and how they can increase their earnings.
Before we continue, you must understand that Uber drivers do not earn a specific salary. They earn from how much they get from trips. Their earnings also depend on various factors and we have given here an estimated amount an average Uber driver in Nigeria makes per week.
We have made this estimation with an establishment of some assumptions. Therefore, we assumed that:
- The Uber driver did not experience a car breakdown
- No accident happened
- The driver was not caught for failing a traffic order
- There was no traffic jam that would bring about delays
Our estimate is based on the fact the an Uber driver worked 7 days per week on the average level.
The first place Uber started operating in Nigeria is Lagos. The reason is not from from the fact that Lagos has an everyday growing population. Lagos also has a good number average and high class citizens who can a good afford the charge for Uber services.
An Uber driver in Lagos who is out for business can hack into the huge market Lagos provides and go home, smiling to the bank. How is this possible? Let’s see.
Uber charges N400 to N3, 800 per trip depending on factors like distance, amount of load and others. And on the average, they charge N1000.
An average Uber driver works fro five hours and in one hour, he is expected to have gone for two trips. If you are following you will understand that he makes N2000 per hour.
After five hours, we can say he made N10, 000 everyday. From here you can see with me that an Uber driver can make N60, 000 per week (excluding a resting day). Isn’t this awesome?
