    Don’t call or text this number.

    the gate code is **** call this number ***-***-**** when you're close, I will come out. It’s a form of phishing/hacking. Only use the call customer button in the app pls. If they don’t answer that number hit that customer did not answer the phone button. Never dial outside the app.

    Safety and security

    Hardrock stadium in South Florida

    Hey guys, I've looked around but can't find any info. So I know Uber has a pick up/drop off spot but what about Lyft? Do we just cruise in and pick up? Problems with cops/security? Any info would be great. Thanks!

    Would you use a free dashcam?

    Why should anyone complain of a video cam? But maybe you have other ideas. I'm only stating if it were "free" because we are all interested in keeping our costs down.
