Any other Honolulu drivers here?

Heyyy the name’s Benson. I’m originally from the SF Bay Area. I moved to Hawaii over 6 years ago with a job offer. I’m a chef and I helped open up a restaurant on Kauai. A couple years later I started working at a big luxury resort on Kauai and stayed there almost 4 years. About 8 months ago I moved to Oahu mainly because I was losing my mind on Kauai (very country, not a lot going on, needed some city life). At first I was all gung-ho about getting a fancy hotel job but then I realized the longer I wasn’t slaving away in a corporate hotel kitchen the happier I got.

That’s when I started rideshare. I started with lyft only and then signed up for Uber. I’ve been full time ever since. A few months later I got banned from driving lyft. They reran my background check and I had a non-violent petty misdemeanor for camping in a state park without a permit almost 3 years ago. Nowhere in their driver requirements does it say that’s grounds for disqualification! I was pissed. It popped up on my Uber background check too but they didn’t disqualify me for it. Either way I was already mad at lyft because they cut their rates in Honolulu (I was making about 20% less than my First 1,000 lyft rides) Anyways, I prefer Uber anyways and since then I’ve got over 2,000 Uber rides. Uber is fun, I can make my own hours, I don’t have 12 bosses anymore, and Honolulu is a great market for it. Between the tourism, nightlife and the almost 1 million people on this rock in the pacific I stay busy and make great money. You never know who you’re going to pick up 😂

Which restaurant on Kauai'i? I once took a Gryft XL fare from Lihue AP to the Poipu Sheraton right after dinner one night. Now Both Gryft and Goober do not let me log in there. The Hawaii section on this forum is very slow.

Cause 50% of the drivers here are ex Korean taxi drivers.
As for lyft cutting there pay, yep they did. 90% of my rides are lyft and still making $26 min per hr
