    Opportunity on Lyft!

    Got this on the Lyft app this morning. Let me get this straight, Lyft... You are telling me about an 'opportunity' to deadhead hours to Bend, drive people to and from a drinking event for minimum pay, then deadhead home again? How, exactly, will I "earn big"??? PASS!!!

    $ per mile

    Did pretty well last night, as measured by $/mile. Normally on a long Fri or Sat I'm making somewhere between $1.25 and $1.50 per mile. Yesterday it was about $2.33. Some good cash tips and a cash ride helped, mostly due to the parade and streets blocked off.

    Unusual results yesterday

    Nothing exciting here... Just posting between requests... Normally my U/L ratio is 50/50 or 60/40 in favor of Uber. Last night I did 12 Uber and 22 Lyft. Rather unusual. The % of pax that tip me (either cash or in app combined) is usually 25-40% on Uber and usually 33-50% on Lyft. My Lyft...

    Weekly stats: Week Two

    What is an ant? Someone who drives for base, among other things. Well, that’s everyone in Portland now, I think. 2nd week of January, tracking driving stats 30+ rides on each platform. My ratio was exactly 50/50, which is strange since I often gave heavy preference to Uber (due to the $3...

    Just another average slow night

    Lots of people still out of town. Traffic is light, that's a positive, but rides are fewer. Uber showing a surge of $7.50 at the airport, yet there are 56-60 cars in the queue. Fake surge? Why yes, I think so. Almost killed a pedestrian downtown. Dumbo decides to cross Broadway with almost...
