    Primetime

    Why does my app still show primetime? I thought they took it away and replaced it with dollar amount?

    Drunks can Walk it Off, Seriously!

    Lyft has killed Prime Time, and drunkards get a super cheap ride, while drivers have to put up with the stupid stuff. I don't know why drivers with any type of normal reason do those hours at the minimum rate. It used to pay better to deal with the volatile, and I think it should pay better at...

    Say goodbye to Prime Time on Lyft

    Just got the email...

    Seattle in prime time while drivers are paid base rate. No personal power zones.

    Unbelievable. Screenshot shows a quote for the airport at ~75% (correction: 50%) surge (correction: prime time), no personal power zone bonuses, driver gets paid at base rate. Welcome to the new Lyft. Unbelievable.

    How to successfully mobilize public opinion against Gryft's removal of PT

    I worked in nonprofit PR for many years, so I know that many underfunded campaigns succeed because they are designed to attract OPM--Other People's Money. We need to raise public awareness of our impending doom by marshalling OPR--Other People's Resources--and giving them win-win opportunities...

    Lyft Getting Rid Of Prime Time?

    My cousin (signed up in Chicago market but works in Milwaukee) just got an email from Lyft stating that there is a "better way to earn". Instead of prime time will get a guaranteed amount. Seems to be the same thing Uber was testing in Charlotte. This is absolutely ridiculous. Have a look for...

    Lyft long trip 45+ min. In surge but no prime time showing.

    I have noticed that Lyft doesn't show surge on 45+min trips. I got 2 45+min pings last week in morning surge it was 100 prime time but it just says 45+min trip no prime time. Then yesterday it was surging 100 prime time in whole Manhattan and I keep getting ping for 45+ trip but no surge. Wtf...

    Uber vs Lyft

    As a driver, it is good to have options. Compared to this time last year, I've increased my earnings by at least a factor of 1.5, and it has a lot to do with doing both Uber and Lyft. There are pros and cons to both platforms. On Uber, even though I do about twenty rides a week, I get a less...

    PT always seems to disappear as I get closer

    And yes I am offline.

    Fake Lyft PT in OC/LA

    As most of you probably have a Lyft account and you know how misleading they are with their Prime Time (e.g., showing 50-200% PT with some pink boxes, which normally means no PT requests at least in my case), I wonder how you normally deal with this BS. What I am doing is going on line to let...

    No more GIGGITY!

    Evidently the new update for Lyft makes PT zones various shades of orange, not pink anymore. Can't say I was in the pink (GIGGITY!) anymore regarding Lyft

    I am a 2-year Uber Select driver. AMA.

    What's happening? Been slow for a lot of people this month; figured I'd emerge from lurk mode and spend a bit of time sharing and learning. Even the best of us can benefit from a morale boost at times. Yes, the thread title was inspired by reddit, one of my favorite sites. Ask me anything. :)

    I'm a Prime Time master!!!

    Just got the email from Lyft with my stats for the year... how about you?

    Lyft can make Uber Surge

    I was really trying to come up with a 'look dummies how easy it is to make it surge by going offline' headline, but we all know how difficult it is to teach drivers tricks. Do you really need a better example than this? Game 1 NO Lyft PT, Uber had meesly 1.6x Boost. Enough to satisfy ants...

    New Prime Time Notification by Lyft?

    Have you seen this before? Instead of showing % increments, now Lyft shows sheer incremental $ numbers. It looks like a new way to lure drivers. I ignored them, as I don’t take rides below 75% PT and it wasn’t clear to me if it is worth my time and mileage with the new notification method...

    Who else is sick of Lyft's supposedly high PT?

    lately I have been a little fed up with lyft and their garbage tactic of claiming higher PT percentages but not showing where they are. Although I get plenty of emails about my acceptance rating (majorly due to them lying) I decided to take some screenshots last night to show how silly this is...

    Lyft Driver App Bugs

    Has anyone noticed new bugs since Lyft basically made the new Driver App and made it even worse when they removed PT %? I feel like Lyft is trying to figure things out as much as we Drivers are... Bugs I/We have noticed so far: - Limited Prime time heat map : Driver Map shows Prime time...

    Higher chance of rides

    I just noticed this feature today on Lyft in San Diego. A pin will pop up on the map telling you there is a higher chance of rides a little way down the road. I didn't chase any of the pins today because each time they were in areas that looked less likely to get rides. The 1st shot I was parked...
