This is tricky and several factors to take into consideration such as 1) your location, 2) the route your driving, 3) competition in your area, 4) is it recurring business or one-off bookings, 5) weekends or weekdays, and 6) daytime or night time? There are probably more considerations but these are a few to keep in mind.

For example, if it’s only 3-miles but it’s at night on a weekend in Manhattan and it’s going to take 2-hours round trip you’ll need to charge a higher rate. It’s hard to give you an exact figure without these details, however I do not recommend charging a per mile rate and I do recommend charging a fixed rate.

Look at the breakdown that Uber charges in your area (it’s on a receipt) and don’t forget about the surcharges they may charge. Also, you will have to account for peak hours and see how they increase fares. Compare this to private shuttles and their breakdowns.

I don’t think it is. I didn’t receive a sign on bonus so no additional consideration was exchanged from my understanding of my law classes.

Hi all, I have the long-term goal of ultimately getting into a good Venture Capital firm at Associate level. I currently work at Amazon , did my undergrad and Masters in Economics at LSE. I have 2 main questions:
1) Is it even possible/feasible to pivot from Amazon to VC given my background?
2) I have the option to internally transfer in Amazon to a product/program manager role or AWS in a start-up Manager role - which of these would be best to maximise my chances of eventually getting into VC?
