Uber driver earnings

Uber is one of the most popular ride-hailing applications in Poland. According to data collected by the company, a taxi driver can earn up to 40 PLN per hour. Uber regularly encourages workers to be more active by offering attractive contests, bonuses, and incentives. An employee, for example, can receive a weekly bonus for completing a specified number of trips. From the amount earned from rides, expenses related to maintaining the vehicle—insurance, inspections, and fuel—need to be deducted.

Tip amounts from customers need to be added to a taxi driver’s earnings. Passengers can express their satisfaction with the service using cash or cashless methods through the application. The tip goes entirely to the driver—Uber does not charge a commission for it.
