About Ridestories

I'm Jason Tucker, by day I work as an IT director for a non-profit and on the weekends I drive for Lyft in the LA / OC markets here in California.

I started writing about #gigeconomy stuff on Facebook and later on my personal website jasontucker.blog but found that this rideshare / gigeconomy content needed its own website. I started driving for 22 months now.

My Ride

When I started driving for Lyft I was driving a 2008 Honda Accord (silver with black leather interior) and found that the car wasn't built for the abuse that rideshare driving can create. I purposely bought a brand new 2018 Kia Niro (LX Hybrid) to drive for Lyft. If I'm going to do this right I need to have the correct car for it. I also didn't want a Toyota Prius, I'm not fond of their interior and I wanted something that had a normal transmission and got great mileage.
