    LYFT is SLASHING Its CANCEL FEE to $2 + Time/Distance

    It looks like the end of an era for the $5 Education Fee for people coming out without car seats, or, most recently, without face masks. New fee structure is $2 + Pick Up distance factor. Ugh.

    Side by Side Comparison between the ever worsening Uber and Coast so Far Clear Lyft

    First off, my system is my system. It's what works for me. For the most part, it's opposite the mainstream. I use 5 of my 6 DFs during the highly concentrated AM rush. On good days, I get multi trips per DF. Perhaps this simple analysis wouldn't match cucumber to cucumber with your...

    Super Far Away Rides

    For several days, I've gotten requests, accepted them, and then found that I am taking people WAY out of the metro. Problem is, when you leave the Tulsa metro, there are only cows between that far-out city and Tulsa. Nice hour long drive. But on the way back, it's my gas and my toll fees...

    How Far Away Can You Pick Up?

    I'm registered as Virginia Beach, but I travel a lot for my real job. I've been able to drive in DC, and further west in Maryland. I originally agreed to something about driving in North Carolina... but I'll be in Raleigh/ Asheville through November, and I wondered if anyone had driven in those...

    113 TRIPS COMPARISON (OLD RATE VS NEW RATE) Shockingly Transparent

    Uber's reasoning to create a more consistent comp plan is fundamentally a crock of poop since successful drivers tailor their driving pattern to the style that works for them. For example, my focus has always been on the greatest distance with the least amount of time. My ideal airport run is...

    Trying to resolve shortchanged fares @ Green Light Hub?

    Fuber's in-app process for disputing fares is execrable, so I usually call Fuber to fix my fares. I have screenshots to prove Fuber is cheating me on distances, but no way to attach them in-app. Can the staff at the GLH make credit adjustments to our fares?

    No pickup time or distance on Lyft request on APP

    Since last week, I noticed Lyft has removed the time away from Pax. Uber still displays time and distance of request from Pax. Why do the Lyft big wigs, need to resort to deception to cause a driver to accept a request. LYFT, what part of I don't want to drive 10 min for a $5.00 fare, do you...

    General Questions (New Driver)

    New driver here, just have a couple of questions I'm hoping you can help answer. 1. How close do I have to be to an Uber ride to get the ping? Is there a limit to the distance or does the app simply ping the closest driver? 2. Is there a way to see the destination before accepting the trip...

    Taking Blocks in different area

    Hey Guys, New to this forum. I currently live in Orange County and have waited forever for Flex to notify me if there become available positions (Orange County doesn't show up on the list of places to deliver). Apparently they must have too many people in this area. Well I went back on the app...

    LONG DISTANCE RIDES

    I had three straight request for 20 min rides and now my acceptance rate is 55 percent because I denied them. I have been online for 8 hours this week with no request until now. What the hell, man??

    Filtering distance question

    Today was my first day driving for Uber. Since I live in a sprawled out area, Uber had me delivering items 6+ miles away. Is there a way in the app that I can filter the distance and only receive pins that have me pick up and deliver within a 4 mile radius?

    UBER DISTANCE TO PICK-UP INCREASED

    On Monday, April 3, I noticed that I was suddenly getting jingles from 18-22 minutes away just like Lyft. Before it was rarely more than 12 minutes. Until then I was concentrating on Uber most of the time because I did not like declining long pick-ups from Lyft, particularly at busy times. Has...

    What area's do you try and avoid at all cost.

    I have found certain areas the quality of the rider and the distance of the trip are very subpar. For a example if a ride takes me to dundalk.. I will shut off the app and drive back to canton area before turning it back on. Now can't be all negative... if you don't have a place to avoid...

    Pax wants to go further then requested

    So today was my first day driving for Uber and I had a Pax that wanted to stop at one location (the one she had set in Uber) and asked if I would then take her to another. I was fine with it. Problem was neither of us knew how to make the trip farther in the app. We tried finishing and then she...

    Newbie question

    Is there some way I can see the final destination before accepting? I want to stay kind of close to home (around a 20 mile radius). Thanks

As soon as turn on Golf from the mall i started getting these pings. I accepted, 20 minutes away, i call the rider to ask if she...

    Weird Lyft pings

    I keep getting calls on Lyft that are like 18-20 min away. I'm sitting on Eastlake and I got a ping for Tukwila. The other night I was at the airport I got a call almost in Pierce country. A few weeks ago I was on 23rd and Jackson and got a ping for the way south end of Issaquah. Surely...
