    Lyft destination filter working better than Uber these days

    I've been noticing lately that Lyft sends more destination trips my way these days than uber does. A lot more, actually. And theyre usually even going in the right direction. Filters have been super slow lately, but Lyft is performing 400% better than Uber. Based on real numbers.

    Destination Filter and Mileage deductions

    I use the DF daily when I leave in the morning. I set Airport as DF. 4 out of 5 days, I receive a ping. When I leave airport, or last dropoff, I head to my day job. Same going home at night. Use DF as home. Most days get rides. Will IRS consider these as commutes, or legitimate attempt to gain...

    Figuring out the new destination filter

    Recently I'd been just driving mornings on the way to my other job so I wasn't paying much attention to how much the destination filter changed. This week my other job was dead and my quest was great so I went all out and drove as much as possible between what little work my other job had and...

    Destination filter at airport queue

    Hi :) I'm a Uber Driver in Portugal and I learned a lot from you and this fórum. I know that rules are different from country to country, but normally you are the incubator to the rest of the market. So, probably a dumb question, but is it possible to have the DF ON and get in the queue of APT...

He's waiting on the curb. Small surge nice guy from Dallas. Drop him off and he tips me $2. Start to drive away get another...

    The new "one and done" destination filter

    Earlier this evening I was maybe 20 miles from home and figured I'd use my last filter. I set it to my town and waited for a ping. About 15 minutes later I got a ping and accepted. Once I had the pax in the car I saw that his destination was only going to get me 5 miles closer to home so I...

    Anyone Played around with DF to Garauntee Short ( 5 min or less rides) to Increase Rides for Quest?

    Also how close to destination will app allow DF to be set for?? - I tried it early this am by DCA. - Those hotels on Rt 1 and parallel roads.- It actually worked well for 1 $4 ride to DCA. It's tricky though because when you are too close to Airport it will stop searching. - I'm trying out...

    Uber Destination Filter - 2 Again

    What a surprise this morning to find that Uber's destination filter has reverted back to 2. It was six for less than a month. So I drove much more for Lyft today, 17 rides for Lyft compared with 4 for Uber. This ratio was reversed for the few weeks that Uber had increased their destination...

    Lyft Fail

    So I decided to try Lyft this afternoon. Finished my day stuff a little after 4, was in Rosslyn. Lyft was 50% PT zone from 4-5, so why not? Did DF to Dulles so as not to get drawn into the hellhole that is Downtown D.C. I actually got a ping after a few minutes. Pulled up and it's a young...

    How to Fix Lyft's Destination Filter

    The destination filters on Lyft and Uber can be a driver's best friend. They are excellent tools first thing in the morning to help get you into the earning zone in the city from your home in the deep suburbs, or to get you back home at the end of the day. But Lyft's destination filter is...

    Uber eliminated "arrive by" in destination filter?

    The destination filter is crap. It frequently has you zig-zag back on forth on multiple $2.80 rides for an hour when it would only take you 20 minutes to get to your destination had you just drove straight there. But recently they added the "arrive by" function and let you choose what time you...

    DF Scam

    So after having a 'wild' night in DT late last night I turned on DF (far north burbs) and started driving that direction. After driving for 15 minutes, I get a Pool request 8 miles away saying that it's towards my destination. I accept. Out of the 8 miles drive to pick the Pax about 4 was...

    180 Days announcement: destination trips count towards incentives

    The 180 Days announcement has foreshadowed that destination trips from using the destination filter will now count towards incentives. At least at this stage, the announcement refers only to the United States. Here's the relevant part of the announcement: Destinations Count Toward Promotions...
