    Lyft #4 - Uber #13 on Apple App Store

    Lyft started Saturday morning at #39 for free apps. Now it's currently at #4. No telling if it's temporary or a long term gain. As the article states: "this sort of social media movement isn’t necessarily about the bottom line of dollars and cents, it’s about how a company is perceived"...

    The demand for the Uber product is just not there!

    Uber is hiring more and more drivers, but the demand for the product is not there relative to the number of drivers they are hiring. Drivers quit! Then the drivers get discouraged and quick driving so Uber has to hire more drivers. ( Lyft has docs that support this. They were released...

    Tip Sign goes Digital

    I know most experienced drivers will hate the slides and the idea. But as long as I get results it's a winner. This also should help illuminate the front passenger PAX for the cheap dash camera I purchased. I have an aftermarket backup camera on the headliner by the dome light and sunglass...

    Whole Foods Removed My Lyft Poster

    I put up a Lyft poster on the community board at my local Whole Foods and the next day I drove by and noticed it was taken down. I am going to check with them regarding their policies but does anyone know why they would do this? My thoughts: -May have to ask management before posting, may have...

    Evil Marketing Monopoly Creation

    It is all about the marketing! Uber spends almost no money on TV, Radio, Billboard, and Internet advertising, while getting billions of dollars worth of exposure with their low fare scandal, hurting hard working drivers with children and families in need. They did a fine job hooking up riders...

    New driver testing the waters/prepping for weekend/marketing.

    I've gotten my feet wet this week by logging on while at home taking care of my evening domestic duties after my full-time day job. Since I'm outside of the downtown area AKA hot spots, it hasn't been very busy which is fine by me. Netted about $30 for 5 local drives so far. $30 bucks I...

    A call to all new suburban drivers...

    Pretty soon you should get an email from Uber about new rider cards (ignore the new driver cards, they're just a scam). Order them. One or two returns more than covers your cost. A roll of tape, a stack of cards, and a Pace bus route could give you great returns. Bartenders love the cards...
