Ride-hailing drivers renting, buying new cars

 

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Some of the people driving automotive sales aren't buying just for themselves: they're buying to keep up with their job working for ride-hailing service.

Dell Davis runs his own sales business but he makes extra money on the side driving for Uber and Lyft.

"It's fun. It don't make a lot of money but it fills in some gaps,” Davis said.

It also takes a toll on his car.

"Lots of oil changes, lots of miles. I would say probably in about 6 or 7 months, I put on about 20,000 miles or so," he said.

That's why some rideshare drivers are renting cars or even buying a new car for the job.
