    Anyone wake up with a mysterious lift deposit?

    Haven’t driven lyft in a month. Woke up with a $150 deposit from them in my account. Not complaining. I guess I got their Christmas bonus early? My birthday is on Monday so maybe that too? Lol right. Still, not going to ask them questions. Just going to take my money and shut up.

    BMW X1 for Lyft and Uber?

    Have a friend who wants to do some Lyft and Uber driving on the side (tried to warn him, it’s his grave). He has a 2013 BMW X1 he wants to use. Lyft said they aren’t allowing small compact cars any longer. Would an X1 fall under that category?

    Lyft says I’m Ineligible For instant pay as they manually review a ride

    Had anyone dealt with this before? I completed a ride from studio city to Santa Barbara. It was 2 tourists from Germany. I’m assuming they may be putting a fraud review on the ride since it was a new account and a long ride? I can’t cash out anything I’ve made today at all, let alone the $100 I...

    So no prime time ever again?

    its been about 5 days since I've seen any really surge "prime time" on lyft in the last 5 days. Maybe because of the holiday? Going away forever? Charging passengers for prime time but not paying drivers?

    Idea for pool and x

    this may come off as a bit controversial, and some may be offended. What if uber determined who received pool pings and who received X pings by the year/make/condition of their vehicle. I'll call an uber x and the car that comes a lot of times is old, dirty, scratched up, stained, smelly and...

    Thank you uber.

    Started out my week with -$108 because their issues properly deducting fuel expenses. Had to work off $108 EXCLUDING boosts to even use instant pay. I've can't expect their drivers to plan for their mistakes.
