How to get paid while you drive to work

If you have a car, driving people is easy on the side job to make money, but sometimes time is what you are lacking. Here is a way to earn money without changing your routine at all.

It’s no news that driving for Uber or Lyft is a great way to have some extra cash or make a living if you don’t have a regular job. This gig allows you to set your own schedule but even then, finding spare time may be difficult. If you have the car but not the time, or if you don’t want to ad dan expense on gas, here is an option that will work for you.

The Uber and Lyft “destination mode” allows you to set a destination and pick up trips along the way. The apps will then only send you rides headed in that general direction.

You can set your workplace, your pilates lesson or the mall as your destination and then you'll only receive requests from passengers that bring you closer to that place. You'll probably have to leave a bit earlier but it's an easy way to make money without changing your routine or expenses a great deal.

Look into this option if driving is a part of your daily activities and if it is a feature you think you would use regularly, be sure to sign up on both Uber and Lyft to be able to use this option more times in one day.  

Uber (but not Lyft) is now taking 30% more of the fare when the driver is set to destination mode and allows this filter to be used in fewer trips, but even then, earning money at no expense is always worthwhile
