Review: The challenge with some ride-sharing apps is that you may be asked to perform a number of short-haul trips that don’t pay enough to make providing the ride worthwhile. Wingz solves that by focusing on rides to and from the airport. The company’s fees for riders start at $25 and get more expensive based on what airport you’re picking up from; how many passengers are in the car; and how far you’re taking them. Since Wingz charges riders, not drivers, for using the service, this pay formula suggests that you’ll always make at least $25 per ride and may make more. That said, when accounting for your time and costs, remember that you have to get to the airport from where ever you live and get back home from where ever you’re dropping people off, too. If you happen to live nearby one of the many airports that Wingz services, this could be a pretty good deal. If not, you may make more driving for Lyft.

If you happen to live in the Los Angeles, San Francisco or Orange County areas of California, you may also consider driving kids through Ride Zum, Kango or HopSkipDrive. All three promise higher rates of pay than typical ride sharing apps.
