    Did LYFT up their STACKED RIDE lever in GTA?

    Saturday and Sunday this weekend had a lot of 'stacked queued' rides on LYFT. (Although Friday was just as busy, not I did not experience any of this stacking.) Like METRO3 , I dislike LYFT's stacking of rides because it 'automatically accepts' them. I cannot see either PAX RATING or PICK-UP...

    Lyft Driver's App

    been doing LYFT for about 2 weeks now, and my app will sometimes not make a sound when a new request pops up. What this means is that if I am not looking at the app I am getting dinged for missing a ride.... Also, is there a way to see the rider's destination? I actually start off with, "So...

    No pickup time or distance on Lyft request on APP

    Since last week, I noticed Lyft has removed the time away from Pax. Uber still displays time and distance of request from Pax. Why do the Lyft big wigs, need to resort to deception to cause a driver to accept a request. LYFT, what part of I don't want to drive 10 min for a $5.00 fare, do you...

    Passengers who refuse to show up and what do you do?

    Several times I've gotten to a pick up point, then both called and messaged the passenger, but they obviously don't want to pay the $5.00 to cancel. This is REALLY annoying, especially after I've driven several miles to the pick up point. What does everyone do? I've actually started and done...

    LYFT App Issues - Pick up and Destination address not visible

    I notice that only the LYFT App has this issue. When I accept the request, i am unable to see the pick up address, until the google maps takes me to that actual destination first. And then after i press pick up passenger, the destination address is visible for 3 seconds or less, and then the...

    LONG DISTANCE RIDES

    I had three straight request for 20 min rides and now my acceptance rate is 55 percent because I denied them. I have been online for 8 hours this week with no request until now. What the hell, man??

    REBEL, Polson, Saturday night, batshit craziness!

    Uber needs to set several pickup spots near the Cherry-Polson intersection. It's simply impractical for the driver to actually drive to the club due to the heavy traffic. Could take up to 30 minutes or so, not to mention the similar amount of traffic on the way out. Last night a passenger with a...

    When picking up and dropping off, do you drive onto rider driveway?

    I have always been stuck on the fact that people don't like you driving on their driveway. I was wondering if most driver actually drive up to people's houses, instead of waiting for them at the curb.

    Cop gave me a warning for trying to kill him...

    I learned today that only some offences carry double demerit points, so these would just incur usual points. For more information on fines, demerit points and offences see these two links: www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/roads/safety-rules/demerits-general.pdf...

    No more countdown timer at the Airport RAA?

    Is it just me? My app does not show any countdown at the Airport RAA. Did Uber stop that for some reason? How do you know how long to wait at the airport?

    Uber Tricks?2.6 surge at the ATL Airport on a snowy morning.

    2.2-2.6 Surge for HOURS at the ATL Airport on a snowy Saturday morning. It was odd because surge map was lit up for the Airport area. But no ride requests were coming from the airport terminal. However, all requests were 20 min to 25 min outside of the airport. There were 10-15 Uber drivers...

    Hi new here

    Hello, I'm thinking of driving for Uber. I live on the beach in St Pete, Fl. only reason I'm considering uber etc is to pay for a truck I'm planning on buying. It'll be a full size pickup. I'll need $6-700 a month to cover the payment, insurance, and uber gas. Thank you.

    First Rams game in 20 years! Any advice?

    I am a huge football fan and am psyched that the Rams are back in town. Unfortunately my finances dictate that I need to work that day instead of scalping tickets. Does anyone have any advice for where to post up outside the game? I know I had success sitting on Sunset for Dodger games and...
