Looking forward to the debate today! We’ve asked drivers in the SherpaShare community to submit their questions, and here’s what’s come in so far…
hannan23: Are there any expenses for being a taxi driver?
a_thomas_sfo: I drive for Uber — why would i want to switch to become a taxi driver? How is being a taxi driver more efficient? In 3 years will there be any difference between Uber & taxis?...
loissor06: Do taxi drivers get benefits?
uberman_dallas: Before rideshare The City regulates the fares, which is better the city or rideshare company controlling the fares?
derry27: What are all the taxi fees? And how does one day’s NET earnings compare on each in SF?
christopher_d98: How many hours do taxi drivers work per week? Average earnings per week? Are most rides dispatched or hails? Average fare?
fran_sanfran: What’s the taxi driver growth potential? Can I arrange private clients as a taxi driver? What happens when the taxi industry dies?
carloman: What’s the payout like as a taxi driver? Flywheel doing anything different or more innovative than rideshares?

SherpaShare helps on-demand workers manage their earnings and expenses and connect with other workers on one app. The community — in the tens of thousands — is primarily made up of Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, and Postmates drivers, although there are some former taxi drivers too!
