    9 reasons not to do uber pool

    (1) Lower rate of pay. (2) Likely to receive lower rating. (3) Less likely to receive a tip (4) When you drop off the first rider you might find that the next riders location is miles away and it’s the same place as your first pick up so you driver back (5) Much more likely to have some...

    Here’s How You Make $300/day with Ubers New Rates

    Here is how you make $300 a day with the new Uber rates... First, you must drive WITH A PAX IN YOUR VEHICLE for 8 hrs straight. Maybe you’ll be lucky and drive Miss Daisy. Miss Daisy MUST BE in your vehicle on-app for the full 8 hours and you MUST DRIVE EXACTLY 30 mph. .66 /mile X 30 mph X 8...

    My Lyft passenger experience

    TL;DR -- Don't use Lyft as a passenger. Use Uber. I went to the Sox game on Monday night so I parked in the city near Boston Common and decided to take a Lyft over to Fenway.. had to get the true rider experience. From this I learned two things: (a) Lyft as a passenger experience is horrible...

    Had a 13.00 surge at Logan. Rider went to Billerica. 35 minutes and 27 miles. Fare said surge was 13.00. Never adjusted for long trip. Called the support-bots and was told that the surge amounts from Logan are never adjusted for distance or time. It's always flat. Anyone else even hear about...

    Can a RI driver change to Boston Hub and still drive RI?

    I read that Boston drivers can drive in Rhode Island, Mass, Vermont, and Maine. As a RI driver can I do that? Change to a Boston driver? If yes, how do I do that? I live in RI, which is a very small state. I'd really like to expand a little. Thanks for your comments

    New Boston Map As of June 1 on Lyft

    Updated my app and noticed a new map for Boston. Anyone else get this? I think this more accurately represents the city than the old one IMHO.

    Two escorts tried to get me to hook up with them

    So most would call this a dream come true, but as a Lyft driver it's obviously dangerous territory and on top of that I'm engaged.. so I took it in good spirit. I was in Boston driving around Fenway Park waiting for pings when I got one from a nearby apartment on Park Dr by the Fens. The ping...

    Interesting and scenic finds...

    UBER for some is a complete focus on the road making what you need to live. But UBER can also be a way to find and discover cool scenery or something interesting you never knew. In my case just last month I was picking up from a late wedding at a place called Quarry Hills located in a suburb...
