The ridesharing industry has transformed transportation, especially traditional public transportation options. There are now millions of Lyft and Uber rides happening each day, particularly right here in the Miami metropolitan area where so many people rely on ridesharing to get them to and from their destinations safely.

They are prone to the same mistakes as any other driver.
Becoming an Uber or Lyft driver is not difficult. Once they pass the checks and have their vehicles inspected, they are off and running. Yes, both companies offer insurance coverage for their drivers. This coverage includes when they have passengers and when they are awaiting fares.
