    Connecticut Lyft Driver that is now able to Pick-up in Westchester NY.

    Over the past couple of weeks I have gained the ability to pick up in Westchester County NY for LYFT as a Connecticut based driver (Still not able to w/ UBER ). Would anyone else have experience or know why this is? Could this be a glitch in the system or has LYFT opened this region up to...

    CT Car Rental

    I was told by Uber support that drivers can now rent vehicles in Connecticut and work. All we have to do is use our personal insurance and upload rental documents. Has anyone tried this or is this something else that support has no idea on?

    Uber has MOVED the Multi-City Driving Map for Drivers of CT!

I am not always up on what Uber does, wants, can and cannot do. Basically, I want to...

    Trade dress updated

    just got an email that now says trade dress must be in the rear window. Up until today I believe it was supposed to be in front window, where mine has been for months. Makes more sense to have it in front so riders see it as you approach Actually reads like they want you to put it on the...

    Child Safety Seat Laws

    If you have not already encountered a parent with a young child, but no Child Safety Seat (car seat), then you soon will. The parent will beg you to transport them, despite the HUGE RISK to you, the driver. You may feel compassionate, but is that or a couple of dollars worth the terrible...

    question for premium drivers

    if you qualify for UberX and premium on your vehicle, do you treat or do anything differently for the premium riders, i.e. open their door, offer water snacks etc? Do any of you drive the Chrysler 300 for both? how do you like it? A friend of mine is interested in going this route

    Juno- The more we ignore you, the closer you get.

    Folks, A bunch of our drivers drove for Juno as part of our desire to foster more competition and that it was a good idea to have Lyft, Uber and Juno as strategic options. We stopped working for Juno after the recent RSU debacle with the sale of the company to Gett. Not that we ever really...

This also applies to drivers in adjacent states...
