    Help for a LYFT Newbie

    Thanks for all the good info. I've learned to turn off Lyft Lux and only do Lyft Black unless I get some PPZ credits, then maybe turn Lux back on. I don't even have a regular Lyft option. My acceptance rate will likely never qualify again for a preview of the trip because they keep trying to get...

    LUX in Palm Beach County

    Sunday I was home with the driver app on but not active when I saw there was a $12 sticky in Palm Beach. I'm about 7 minutes from it and getting bored at home so I chased it. I caught it just in time but the center of it was in the intercoastal and I don't do Uber Boat so I got $11 sticky. I...

    Help for a LYFT Newbie

    I'm an Uber veteran but fairly new to LYFT (getting more LYFT Luc rides than Uber in PBC). I always keep Uber Driver app on top and have intil yesterday always been driving when I got a Lyft request. By the time I get Lyst on top while still paying attention to the highway, I don't have time...

    Former Uber driver found guilty of raping woman after SunFest to get new trial

    I read all the articles about this at the time. My conclusion was he was likely innocent. Glad to see it's back to square one.

    Surge multiplier is back!!

    It happened briefly in Palm Beach about 2:30 PM. It showed just the multiplier. I read Uber is trying this out in California. Maybe they will here too. I chased the surge but just like the old days, I couldn't catch it. I wanted to see if it was a sticky or not. It never was originally. Thinking...

    Lux Lease

    Thanks for all the help. I'll try it (might be awhile. Chances of getting an Uber Lux ride aren't good until Friday). My newest strategy is (from home) to look for a big surge to pop up nearby, go pick up a sticky, then drive to the Breakers and turn on X. Likely I will get a 1 mile trip...

    Lux Lease

    Thanks but it looks like you're pairing your phone to your car with Bluetooth. I did that long ago. Everything works through my Lexus sound system except Uber request noises. My telephone rings. I can talk, I can listen to podcasts. Lyft makes noises. I can listen to music from my phone if I...

    Lux Lease

    Speaking of Lyft Lux and Lux Black, In Palm Beach County Uber Lux is already dying and the cord will be pulled on it in July. One reason is that LYFT Lux is cheaper and now I'm getting Lyft Lux pax at 3-1 over Uber Lux. So I'm getting used to the Lyft app more, but still leave the Uber app on...

    Uber now giving you the option to pick where you want to drive!!!

    Makes no sense to me. The whole reason for having too many drivers is to get the customers picked up quickly. Why would Uber want me to sit at home and wait for a job 5 miles away at a hotel where there are other drivers nearby? Better they hire some smart programmers to figure out a way to...

    potential female newbie needs advice

    I's say wait and see how the Ubering goes before you have the operation.

    LUX in Palm Beach County

    Driving Lux in Palm Beach County? Things have changed this year. I don't even bother to try weekdays and it's the height of the season. Friday Jan 31 was strange. I was going to go to Jupiter at 4pm and never made it. I got 4 LYFT rides and zero Uber Lux rides before 7pm. I didn't have 4 LYFT...

    I won't do it

    Thanks. One more question: has anything changed in how Uber selects who get's the call? It used to be closest with some riders suspecting there were a few exceptions (not counting airports of course). I've noticed lately that the Lux cars hanging out at the EAU hotel don't seem to care if they...

    I won't do it

    Thanks. I was wondering why so many Lux surges and so few rides. I can always go to the Breakers and likely get a short X trip to cash in my unused surge if I can't get a Lux trip. BTW, yesterday I had a $3 surge on my phone for several hours. I went in a store that is known to have poor...

    What happened to this Pickup request?

    If he put the marker in the back yard of somebody, why would the Driver App give me one address while routeing me to the next street North? OK, the next street was a bit closer to the marker. So what? Isn't this all Google maps stuff? Does Uber navigation actually use Uber code? Although I...

    What happened to this Pickup request?

    Yesterday I got a trip request from a residental area where the houses are spaced with plenty of room; very suburban. It gave me an address to go to but the Uber routing told me to pick up on the next street to the North. HUH? The marker was in the back yard of the house with the address given...

    I won't do it

    Friday in Palm Beach County I got shut out doing LUX. I was on for about 4 hours at dinner time. 2nd Friday in a row with zero requests. Last night, Saturday, I turned it on at home and got one. It turned into 4 trips and one $9.75 surge which I chased from 10 freeway miles away, which I did...

    LUX in Palm Beach County

    Is it as dead driving Uber in Palm Beach County as this sub-forum (last post over 3 months ago) is? I was inactive most of the summer as my usual hangouts at dinner time were still populated by a handful of others who were mostly just sleeping in their Suburbans outside the hotels, hoping to...

    Premier

    @Tdawg487 I learned a lot here and most of goes against common sense. Especially how they would put you through that grueling X boot camp and not allow you to accept LUX rides. Please let me know if and how many Premier rides you get. Also anybody else who has a Premier account, how about...
