    Just an Average Uber pax review of Lyft

    Just yesterday I had a passenger say "I know with Uber the tip is included." I had to correct her, they are forbidden by law to take a % of a tip, it would have to be declared separate from the fare. Lyft does give you an option to tip which is entirely up to you. People believe what they want...

    I used Lyft as a pax from LAX

    I hate the rating system, when you are a passenger in my car you either get 5 stars or 1 star, if I give anything other than 5 stars you are a real dick. I gave the driver 3 stars and mentioned the trunk was full of crap. p.s. Never said he or she in my post.

    I used Lyft as a pax from LAX

    Pick up at sign "F" at United, I watched the app as the driver passed the first left turn on the upper level, skipped the second left turn and drove around the entire loop past the Bradley terminal, not a good sign. An old Ford Focus pulled up and parked with it's rear driver side sticking out...

    Lyft drivers don't have fasttrak transponder.

The transponder must be on the front...

    LAX Update

    This is not going to be pretty. The best will be if it surges and all the pax cancel and wait, 50 cars, 50 passenger, 2.0 surge and no pings.

    Troll or uber employee ?

    No need to panic. I'll just lash together a few raw facts, a little bit of old Negro wisdom, and this nightmare is over.

    Uber is in deep sh!t

    I think it would be good for them to pay payroll taxes and withhold FICA and State Tax and any other requirements. That would bring things a little closer to reality when everyone talks about income.

    "Do you mind if I play a sermon?"

    People are just cheap.

    If he thinks they are shitty now give it 3 or 4 years when the loans are paid but the drivers can't afford a down payment.
