    LYFT PTC Woes [2019]

    I am not sure how many 'Founding Drivers' remain on the LYFT platform after 2 years (According to the research, it should only be 2-4%). However there are a few of us. And at least one driver I know is having major issues with PTC renewal. If you recall, this time last year (the 1 year...

    LYFT cut destination filter to 2 uses per day for Miami

    Today Lyft cut our destination filter down to 2 per day. Which means I have to save them all for the end of the night and then I can only come home with deductible miles if I'm within 30 minutes. Guess I'm not taking long rides near end of shift ever again. And will be implementing cancels...

    Airport drop-off, driving away and got a rematch on Lyft. Do the 2 mile loop to get to the arrivals spot. As I'm pulling in, Lyft switches the ride. Instead if a code, now I have a name.

    A lovely Saturday night; TLDR

    Early evening, 10 minutes from downtown. No pings for over 20 minutes. Finally get one from a seedy motel. Man and woman want a ride to liquor store, then back. 1.4 miles round trip. Sigh. I squeeze an extra $5 cash out of em, and do the full round trip. They invite me in to drink with them...

    A new message from Lyft

    If my low AR is a problem for you, there are two very easy ways to fix it...... Fire me or pay me more. Oh, wait, the courts ruled that you can't terminate drivers for low AR. Too bad for you.

    Lyft Community Digest

    Lyft’s latest propaganda and lies arrived yesterday (Oct 29) but not seen until this morning. Interesting approach to their driver profile how one of their drivers reports on their night...which hasn’t happened yet.

    Store in the country

    So I'm taking these two rednecks home, way out in the country. As we are winding through the back roads we come to a store. There's a sign in the window that says "FREE SEX - Ask inside for details". These guys want to stop, and I'm kind of curious myself, so we pull in real quick. There's a...

    DF sending me the wrong way

    Good old DFs! Lyft drops you to the bottom of the stack when you turn on DF. I may as well just go offline 90% of the time, the result is the same. Uber's DF works for me most of the time. "Most" is the key word here. Set my DFs to take me home, which is about 15 miles SE in this instance. Got...
