    Glad I asked! Thanks for the feedback. I started out several years ago in the Amherst/Noho/Hadley area and I liked that area. Well, except for Halloween at UMass. Never again! LOL

    New maps issue

    I never use the embedded maps. I always default the settings to Google Maps. You're right, you can't see the next turn and it's not good. Waze is too busy for me, very distracting.

    Lyft Amp, bluetooth, navigation and audio

    What? We're Being Rated on Line Route

    I saw this post in The Hub. Are our ratings including the line route now? Something we have little control over? That doesn't fee right? Am I getting this correctly?

After I get home and get out of my car for the day, I have what feels like vibrations going through my legs. It's as if I'm still in the car and I'm feeling the...

    Happy to hear that Lyft is MA wide. Hopefully they'll be pushing the service. I actually like driving Western Mass, especially when I don't feel like going to Boston. I'm glad I have more choices now. Amherst/Northampton is busy during the school year and the driving is much easier.

    I started my ride share career out in Western Mass about two years ago when Uber first started out there. It was good for a newbie, but summers are dead without students. I finally figured out that plying the trade was best along Route 9 from Amherst to Noho. Tons of stores and lots of rides...

    Rideshare insurance

    I use Progressive. They are one of the few insurance companies rolling out a ride share rider for auto insurance. They have done so in other states - Pennsylvania is one I know about. But in Massachusetts not yet. I'm hoping!
