So, you're taking them cheap Lyft X calls with a large vehicle that burns more gas? I'd trade it in.
The last cab I drove was a Chevy Venture, that coveted 5 or more passengers; but hardly was hired out to that many. It was a waste of space, fuel, and air conditioning because most of the time only one or two people would ride.
And this was a taxi, my friend. Trade that thing in if you can. The only time I filled that Plus or XL SIZE up, was on weekends for drunken folks.
No worth it, in my opinion. Your more profitable in a 4 passenger economy car.
It's the family truckster so it's not the end of the world. Too many drivers nowadays in my area with drivers rolling right up and parking nearby. These companies better get autonomous quickly or the whole crapshow is goings chest up for them! I laugh maniacally at the puny regular Lyft rates and just let them timeout anymore. I'm on both and just take the xl rides. Thanks for commiserating dudes!
I have been going rounds with this as well, and have come to the conclusion, that if they really want the community to have longer wait times while I don't accept other rides, that is "their choice". We have asked for a solution and they do not wish to provide, so we will work with the only solution we have, ignore all other rides.
Don't expect I will get many rides, but at this point I really don't care as I won't be wasting my time and vehicle on the cheap rides, it really doesn't make sense for me to drive my particular vehicle unless it is a PT or Plus ride.
I wrote them once with something to the effect of: Lyft is placing itself in the role of employer by directing the types of rides I will be given against my desire and in spite of their competitor, Uber, allowing XL only at my request.
