Is Uber paying $500 to Houston drivers to drive at TPC Craig Ranch Outside Dallas?

If you need to earn some extra cash this weekend, this is your best bet, no matter where you are in Texas.

Uber is willing to pay drivers up to $500 to drive this weekend at the AT&T Byron Nelson @ TPC Craig Ranch starting Thursday, May 12 – May 16, 2022.

In an e-mail sent to Houston drivers (and likely around the state), Uber states they will pay an extra $5 a trip when you pick up in the Uber Zone at AT&T Byron Nelson.

While $5 does not seem like a whole lot, drivers who know how to hustle hard can potentially 100 trips spread out over the 23 hours Uber has designated. (yea, a couple of those hours you will have to squeeze in an extra trip, but 4 – 6 trips an hour is not unheard of. Uber claims we can make $20+ an hour on a regular, and the min. payout is a little less than $3. You could potentially get more than $500 extra if you stick to those short trips.

Remember, this is extra, not all that you will make. The fact that Uber is incentivizing drivers a couple of hundred miles away in Houston, (potentially the entire state of Texas) Uber is expecting huge demand. This will translate to higher than usual surge pricing. At the very, very least, you could pull $300-$400 a day at this event, from surge pricing alone, plus base rates, plus the $5 extra a trip incentive.

Oh, and don’t forget those miles are tax-deductible. =) (disclaimer: not a tax advisor)
