"According to drivers, one main advantage of working for a rideshare platform was the flexibility that the system affords in terms of where and when to work, and the low level of commitment that is required by signing up. Some individuals drove full-time, but many also drove for fun, out of curiosity, or on a part-time basis. Many drivers used the ridesharing app in collaboration with their own daily routine to earn extra income, turning the driver app on for the daily commute for example, or doing chores around the house while waiting for a ride request to come in. In addition to the added financial flexibility that rideshare work affords, many drivers we interviewed mentioned social motivations for rideshare driving. Several drivers, for example, weighed the fun of meeting and having conversations with new people and the desire to help out the community as greater than or equal to their motivation to earn extra income."
