    Lyft vs Uber

    Hi, I am currently driving for Lyft. I thought Via would be great in winter as you are confined to the Chicago city limits—no icy burbs. I feel that Lyft incentivized me the first few weeks, but not so much now. They have increased my driver referral bonus (hiring my replacement) and...

    Uber vs. Lyft—Chicago

    Uber vs. Lyft Demand over the past few weeks. [Poll]

    In my situation, I've seen a marked large increase in Lyft requests and a steep decline in Uber requests over the past few weeks. For the first time ever, my Lyft fares have accounted for 70% of my ride share income for this week (March 18th to 25th). It also appears that Lyft is no longer...

    Early morning Lyft ride requests

    Why are all the early morning Lyft requests 15+ minutes away? I just drove 18 minutes to Tigard thinking I was getting a sweet 40 minute airport trip. It turned out to be a minimum fare (no bonus, no tip) with a customer complaining that three other drivers before me had cancelled them. 30...

    Uber and Lyft Drivers

    I have some questions for drivers that drive for both Uber and Lyft. In my area, Uber seems to be more popular (about 5:1 unless I'm near the airport then can only use Lyft), so I mainly only have the Uber app on constantly and then only turn the Lyft app on when im waiting for an Uber ping...

    Uber vs Lyft in SD?

    Im approved for and drive for both services, but I often see drivers stick to one or the other, especially a lot lyft drivers. Why would you do this? Its so restrictive to be with only one platform all the time, isn't it?

    Signing up

    OK, so, Uber has been messing around with my application and paperwork for almost 2 months now, with minimal communication. Still not approved. I applied to Lyft yesterday and got my approval this morning - about 18 hours later, with several messages about the progress of my application and the...

    Lyft's destination system works at the airport, lol.

    The question is: Why isn't Uber's? Today I took a long ride from my airport 45 miles up to another city, dropped the cheapskate off and headed for their airport, the queue begins.... (I forgot I left my Lyft on with destination to my home airport). As soon as I got a bubble from Uber, I take...

    Uber vs Lyft in The IE

    My first Uber ride this morning no-showed on me.. Probably because he realized it was a 1.5x surge.. I turned Uber off so I wouldn't get a ping from him again after I took his $5 and turned on Lyft.. 3 rides and 3hrs later I had $90 and called it a day. I've found that Lyft is a lot slower than...
