    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...

    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

    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...
