    Stay away from the meatball(red zone)

    Lyft is charging customers xtra and not paying one cent of it to drivers. Lyft! Why should drivers pick up people at base while Lyft is pocketing the extra money because there isn’t enough drivers for the demand? It is not worth going to concerts, pro sports, etc... Let the passengers walk...

    LYFT’s in-app Feedback Summary FAILS to Give The On Piece Of Info I Want As A Driver

    So Lyft recently pushed the promised feedback summary into the App instead of issuing a weekly snapshot via email. Ok, fine. Maybe this is motivating to some. But the one piece of information I do want to see is the comments/feedback left by Pax. Especially the negative stuff, so I can use...

    Making money using other gig-economy apps during slow times?? (e.g. www.solicitr.ca)

    For those who rely on gig-economy apps like Uber and Lyft for a substantial portion of their income (or even those who use these apps occasionally to earn a side-income), have you ever considered using other gig-economy apps to earn money during slow times?? While there are a number of apps out...

    Gotta love the state..

    I'm constantly getting reported by other drivers as being an HOV lane violator due to my window tint. (lighter in front, dark in back.) After numerous battles with the state, they finally put it in the system as me being an Ant. 🐜🐜

Rowdy is complaining about what a waste of money it was, too crowded, poor sound quality, etc. After 10 minutes of that the other guy tries to change the subject by starting convo with...

    Did I earn this 1 star?

    Early evening, beautiful sunny day. Pull up to an upscale bar and wait. Multiple people standing about, chatting, looking at phones, coming in and out of the bar. 2 women about 10 feet away, looking at phones then me, then phone, then me. Hmmmm. Maybe they will figure out if I'm their driver...

    You drove right past me

    Pick up at a major transit center. About 2 blocks of people standing around, looking at phones, etc. The GPS shows the pickup in an empty field, which can't get to by car, about a quarter mile away. I know the pax is at the transit center somewhere, so I will slowly troll the people and hope I...

    Monday Rush was not your typical start of the workweek Crush

    First time in weeks I didn't get a premium run before 6 am on a Monday. In fact, I've gotten so proficient at it, I even have lists of Consultants who request every monday at the same times: 5:15, 5:30, & 5:45. This way, once I get back to DT after dropping my regular off, I know exactly...

    More Lyft Lies

    I’m disillusioned with Lyft, so when I received this message: ...I thought “Great, a second location. Maybe this one isn’t on wheels.” I was mistaken. It’s just a Pep Boys. I need to stop thinking there is truth in any Lyft communique.

    Lyft shared increased waiting times

    https://thehub.lyft.com/blog/shared-no-shows?locale_language=en&locale_region=US O good so they are finally admitting to their policy they've had for months. Often at the airport shared rides are 5 minute pickups. And routinely especially if my acceptance rate is low first pax of shared ride...

    App Glitch & Cancel Fee

    Strange one last night just after midnight. I get a ping that is 10 minutes away. A little long for my tastes, but I'm coming home from a movie, and the Ping is near my house. I was going home anyway. I'm curious why the long ping, but maybe Monday night after midnight in a rainstorm means...
