An industry leader's guide to making Lyft and Uber work for you.

In less than five years, ridesharing has grown from nonexistence into a billion dollar industry. Uber now has two million drivers in the United States, Lyft has seven hundred thousand, and both show no signs of slowing down. Despite the large number of drivers, Uber and Lyft provide little in the way of help for new drivers, who complain that there is a lack of guidance when starting out.

Harry Campbell, founder and director of The Rideshare Guy blog and podcast and a driver himself, can help. The Rideshare Guide offers a comprehensive and engaging handbook for current and prospective rideshare drivers. Learn how to:

Decide between Uber and Lyft
Maximize passengers and profits
Maintain a five-star rating
Keep safe and interact appropriately with passengers
Navigate legal matters and tax codes

Campbell explains these and much more, also including funny, shocking, and bizarre tales from the road. Whether you are thinking about becoming a driver or a veteran wondering about UberPool and tax help, The Rideshare Guide by the Rideshare Guy has the answers.
