We did a ride-along with Lyft veteran Bouchaib El Hassani in New York City to see what it’s all about.
Even amid the bitter war between Lyft and Uber, Bouchaib loves his job. He drives about 50 hours a week, setting his own work hours for when it’s most convenient.
“I get to know things that I wouldn’t otherwise know about other professions, and other states and cities. I learn a lot in this car,” he said to Business Insider. “Plus, the flexibility is great.”
Bouchaib has a perfect five-star rating, and he coaches new drivers though Lyft’s Mentor program.
