    Company slogans

    Companies have coined phrases that have stuck, some good and some bad. Here are 3 that come to mind: - Uber: Tips are included. - Uber: Lower prices means more money. - Lyft: Safety is our top priority. I think that WE should be the ones to come up with their slogans! Here are some off the...

    Strange pax phone call

    Hello? "Hi, oh sorry, I thought this was my Uber driver." Yes, that's me. "What?" I'm the Uber driver. "Oh okay." <pause> <pax hung up> . . . . What the heck?

    Lyft Driver Loses It

    Probably snapped driving a Lyft Express Drive rental for $0.36/mile. Hope this drops the stock a little https://www.clickorlando.com/news/lyft-driver-accused-of-hitting-woman-after-she-wouldnt-give-her-a-5-star-rating

    UP.net saved my butt - TWICE!!!

    I think of UP.net as a breakroom, where drivers come to share interesting or funny stories and complain about the rotten stuff with the jobs - just like at a breakroom at any job. Most of the time there is a lot of whining and complaining. (And most of the time, it is justified.) But I have...

    DF is worthless

    I really hate having to use the DF. As soon as I turn them on, I know my chances of getting a ride drop dramatically, and half the time the ride is either a mini ride (waste of time) or in the wrong direction. Often times I will turn them on when I want to go home, after 8+ hours of driving. I...

    Logisticare rides

    Watch out for those fares on Lyft that are booked through Logisticare. They usually go like this: 1) Logisticare books fare automatically for PAX. Driver picks up fare with the name of the PAX showing 2) Driver arrives at a medical related facility. In my case, two out the three times were...

    Stolen Car

    My car was stolen Saturday night or Sunday morning from the Hoover, Al area. If anyone sees a 2014 Grey Mustang with UAB tag GDEUP please inbox me or call the police! Any info would be helpful. It’s the same car as in the photo.

    Driving in NY

    Saturday(technically Sunday), at around 2AM, I got a long trip request from Lyft—it’s annoying that Lyft lists it as 45+ minutes rather than 60+ minutes that it was. Regardless, I had my mind set on not turning such a money-making trip, as this has been by far my slowest post-holiday, pre-MMDW...

    Another sad pax story

    Picked up a woman in her 20's, disheveled, smelled really bad. Taking her to her car, left at a bar earlier that evening, about a mile away. She met some co-workers at the bar and had a couple drinks with them. Two simple drinks, nothing out of the ordinary she says. All of a sudden she wakes...

    Driver safety at its finest

    Pickup in the hood. A man, maybe 30, and a kid, maybe 10. Neither one looked like a "Natalie". Kid sat in back with his arms crossed the whole time. Had an angry frown so mean it could turn an angel to dust. Man sat in front checking out the buildings as we drove. Amazed at all the growth and...

    Lyft stock drops to 52.91 per share losing 6.43 per share

    People ask if the strike is doing any good and by the looks of the share price dropping exponentially I would say yes. Of course there are many mitigating factors that are making the share price drop but the strike may have been one contributing factor. I also read today about the take-rate...

    Lyft is stating to the media drivers pay has gone up over the past two years

    Lyft and Uber have incorrectly (e.g. been lying) to the media. why? because they can. Lying to the media is not a crime but lying directly to investors is thus you wont see the following in investor relations PR. Look at the quote from Uber below and then look at the IPO prospectus which...

    Pickup driving limit?

    In treating this as a business, I limit myself usually to a pickup distance of 1.5 miles. I assume that every ride will pay the minimum, and that is how far I am willing to travel (for free) to pick someone up. I could "take a chance" and go further, because you never know which rides are good...

    You're doing great!!

    About a month ago I had perfect 5.0 with Lyft. It couldn't last forever. One week it dropped into the middle 4.9s. The next week it dropped again. The other day it dropped yet again (I'm such a scumbag!). Lyft's message at the top of the email: You're doing great!!!

    Time value of waiting

    It annoys me when I get to a pickup and the pax texts or calls that there will be a delay. Sometimes they are trying to be cool about it, and they say something like "Go ahead and start the meter." I appreciate their consideration! What they don't realize is that we get paid jack for time, AND...

    Is the Express Drive program with Lyft worth it?

    I'm reading a whole lot of very bad reviews and horror stories for the Fair car leasing option with Uber--bad cars, very poor customer service, and being charged for services not rendered. So, I've decided to look into Lyft's Express Drive program. I live in Pittsburgh, PA and will be driving...

    Lyft "bonus" vs. PT is a total scam!

    Here's a good example of new reality. Lyft charged passenger almost x2 surge price and paid me 1.67 as a "bonus". Scammers!

    Testing see passenger info if acceptance rate over 90%

    anyone else see this? I haven't gotten to test it yet since my acceptance rate is 65% from last week and it doesn't reset anymore due to the rolling 7 days acceptance rate now. Considering trying to get my acceptance rate up to 90% to test it today to see if it's worth it
