What if Your Daily Trip to Work Was Your New Side Hustle Hiding in Plain Sight?

2022 was the year of the side hustle. 

40% of Americans currently have a side hustle, up from 34% in 2020. And more than 1 in 3 Americans have started or plan to start a side hustle in 2022.

Is it hard to find a new way to bring in some extra cash each week? It doesn’t have to be.

Many ATL Airport Employees Need Some Help Getting to Work

We all know that getting to work is hard for ATL airport employees. And it is expensive. 

If you get to work with your car, you know that ATL airport employee parking and gas costs (plus vehicle payments and maintenance) can really add up. 

What is true for you is also true for most other ATL airport employees. 

For those without regular access to a reliable car, getting to work can be a real challenge. This is especially true for people working those early morning or late night shifts (before and after MARTA is running).

It is also very hard for airport employees that live in areas with no MARTA service. Some airport employees even work in areas with no MARTA routes, like people working in the South Cargo area for companies like Swissport, DHL, and Lufthansa. 

As a result, ridesharing services like Lyft and Uber have become the last resort way to get to work. 

The problem is… Uber and Lyft rides keep getting more and more expensive. They can cost employees 20-40% of their take home pay per day. That just isn’t right. 

Turn Something You Already Do into Your New Side Hustle

All of these ATL airport employees need easier and cheaper ways to get to work. 

You already drive to and from work on a regular basis. 

You might as well get paid to do it, right?

A simple trip to work just might be your new side hustle in plain sight!

There will always be people without a car of their own who need a ride to the airport. People are more than happy to pay you for a ride to work, and that payment can offset your expenses.

How Do You Find ATL Airport Employees That Need a Ride?

Let’s talk about carpooling. First up, what is carpooling?

The answer might seem obvious, but carpooling is just sharing a ride to work with a coworker… someone that lives near you and works a similar schedule.

As we have seen, a lot of ATL airport employees need a ride to work. 

Aero makes it easy to connect with these other airport employees with the GA Commute App. This is the official app supported by Atlanta’s regional government, so you know it is legit. 

To get started with your new side hustle today, all you have to do is:

All you have to do is:

  1. Sign-up or log-in to a My Georgia Commute Options account
    – Or get the GA Commute App
    1. Get it here on the App Store 
    2. Get it here on Google Play

This Side Hustle Comes with a $150 Bonus to Get Started

As we have seen, the GA Commute App will help you find one or more ATL airport employees looking for rides to and from work. 

The app will also be your way to earn a $150 cash reward for trying this out. 

To earn this reward, you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Create your profile in the GA Commute App.
  2. Give other employees rides to work for at least 30 days (within the first 90 days of signing up).

In addition to earning cash, you’ll be eligible for all of the other discounts, prizes, and rewards provided within the GA Commute App.

Sidenote: Once you connect with a passenger using the app, you can then decide on a fair amount they should contribute per ride. 

One way to calculate this is by using the federal cost per mile rate of 62.5 cents per mile plus your parking costs each day to determine your one-way costs. 

Ultimately, it’s up to you and your passenger(s) to agree on an amount you both think is fair.
