    LYFT PTC Woes [2019]

    I am not sure how many 'Founding Drivers' remain on the LYFT platform after 2 years (According to the research, it should only be 2-4%). However there are a few of us. And at least one driver I know is having major issues with PTC renewal. If you recall, this time last year (the 1 year...

    905 or 416 [POLL]

    The GTA is vast geographically, stretching from Oshawa to Hamilton around the lake, and extending up towards Aurora/Newmarket North of the city. Do you 'identify' as a 416 City driver, or do you rigourously stick to the Suburban rings? You can select up to three options in the poll.

    Lyft's DRIVER OF THE MONTH Pizza Lunch - Aug 29

    Anyone going to this? The Driver Of The Month event is at their Hayden Rd. Office at 3:30 on Thursday, which is terribly inconvenient for me personally. (And they only cover 30 minutes of Parking -- I imagine the event is longer than 30 minutes?) Either way, if someone goes, take some pics...

    Making money using other gig-economy apps during slow times?? (e.g. www.solicitr.ca)

    Great advertisement... would rather have you support the website and avoid such uber/lyft tactics.

    Lyft and their Manipulative Demand PrimeTime

    They’ve been doing this a lot lately, for those of us not transitioned to Personal Power Zones (PPZ). It’s misleading as it is Prime Time decoupled for actual demand. And if I recall correctly, you are just as likely to get non-PT rides in the full pink zone. I believe the actual red blob in...

    $1.30/L Gasoline in GTA - Can you afford to drive?

    I saw most stations in the Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton at $1.30/L or higher. The cost of gas will only keep climbing as summer approaches, when demand increases, and additives for summer formula raise the cost. Is $1.50/L an ant killer? At what price point will you stop driving ride-hail?

    Talking Electric Cars on The Greg Carrasco Show (AM640)

    The host of the Auto Talk Show on AM640 was kind enough to keep me on for 2 full segments to try to correct some of the misconceptions about electric cars. Don't know how easy it is to find in podcast form. Maybe someone was listening while driving around this morning, and caught me trying to...

    Please Help Get Us Noticed!

    A number of Toronto Drivers have been deactivated due to some sort of LYFT software glitch. These are the founding drivers as LYFT expanded into their first international market, the ones that lasted a year and are very much the more high rated and enthusiastic drivers to be in the 4% of...

    "Toronto will look at mandatory training for Uber, taxi drivers"

    "Toronto has moved a step closer to requiring training courses for drivers of taxis and ride-hail services such as Uber and Lyft, an issue under scrutiny since a man’s death last March. The new 26-member city council, during its first full meeting, directed city staff to recommend, in a coming...

    Festival R.I.D.E. Checks

    I sincerely hope that none of you experienced drivers would be using the app and driving around while impaired. That is the obvious part. What has been your experience on R.I.D.E. stops with Peel, Toronto, York, or Durham officers? I've gone through two of these so far this season, and one...

    Coffee Time with LYFT with your host, SHAZ

    Did anyone else get one of these invites on the LYFT platform (via their texting alerts?) I got one, but Leslieville on a Tuesday daytime is not going to happen for me. Apparently they are targetted focus groups on both incentive structure and community building. Hosted via the Global Ops...

    Pax changed her clothes in my car.

    I've been using my personal car to drive UBERX here and there for about 3 weeks now. Did maybe about 10 trips so far. Just about an hour ago, a young girl in early 20s(my age group) got in. Before I knew it, she starts taking her clothes off, I freak out, tell her she can't do that, she...

    Would Torontonian Ubers be okay with this type of ride?

    Hi ladies and gentleman! I was hoping you might be able to give your thoughts on a particular situation today. I'm a pax. I happen to be blind. If I were to text you after you accepted my ping, asking you to come in and get me, take me to your vehicle, then bring me inside at the destination...
