    Lyft express drive program

    The pay you earn pays for the car, unless you are lucky enough to get the bonus. Even then, you still have to keep up your acceptance rating. So they dont want you cashing out before you pay for the car lol. And like was said, no PDB, your bonus now is towards the rental.

    Lyft App + Waze is so slow, advice?

    So im finally approved for lyft and on the road. I found Uber+waze to work pretty decently. However Lyft and waze take for ever to talk to each other then i have to wait for waze to finally add the route. Is there a quicker way?

    Another piece of "golden advice".

    Haha, neither. Simply pointing out the irony in following the letter of the contract by ignoring parts of the contract. I have no problem grow my personal and/or non uber proffesional network using passengers. In fact some of my top contacts were gardnered from passengers.
