BUFFALO, N.Y.(WKBW) - In less than three weeks Western New Yorkers will have the opportunity to use their personal car to make some extra cash.
Uber, Lyft, and other ride-sharing companies launch services in Upstate New York on June 29th. Those companies are hustling to get people signed up to drive for them. Drivers can make as much as $800 a week according to Lyft.com calculator. But there are some hoops potential drivers must jump through before becoming a driver.
The minimum requirements to drive are:
*Must be 21 years old or older *Own a newer model four door car or minivan *Must have insurance and the vehicle must be in good condition *Must have a New York State Safety inspection sticker
People can apply directly through ride-sharing companies websites. Lyft is holding job fairs all this week from 1pm until 6pm at the Hyatt Hotel in Downtown Buffalo. Uber will also hold job fairs over the coming weeks in Western New York.
