    In my opinion AVOID leasing Mercedes METRIS at all costs. Reason number one. Through Via you will pay $450 a week. If you were driving in the five boroughs you will find it necessary to change the brake pads every seven months. It takes 10 quarts of special oil, So your oil change will be...

    My tax guy said “anyone driving for Uber or Lyft is an idiot”

    Lol! It’s that time of year and we all know, tax time! I remember the day I went into his office and told him I’m doing Uber as a job (now side hustle with primary Lyft) and he never heard of them. Fast forward to 2019 and my tax guy said he now prepares hundreds of taxes for people that include...

    Rideshare hates

    Apart from Uber/Lyft/Paxholes what do you hate most about doing rideshare? Me, I’ve just had enough of f’ing public restrooms. If I see one more pissed on seat, shat on floor, booger smeared or graffiti scratched mirror, broken faucet/sink or empty soap/towel dispenser... From Costco to Trader...

    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...

    Lyft Invading Privacy: Tracks Users When Offline

    Did you know that Lyft is tracking your every move whether you are online or not? In a very Facebook-ish way, they are location-tracking users/drivers whenever the app is open even if you have no intention of using it for ridesharing today. Here is a fun experiment to try at home: First...

    Do Lyft Personal Power Zones work with destination filter?

    I turned on a destination filter while in a personal power zone, and immediately the demand heat maps and power zone disappeared. I didn't end up getting a ride so I don't know whether I would've gotten the bonus or not. I called support who claimed that I'd still get personal power zone bonus...
