I've been in Hilton Head for about a month now and just the last 2 weeks since the golf tournament at Sea Pines I've ben told by security that to pick up Lyft passengers it'll cost me $15. Anyone esle experience this?
Lyft has had a bad habit of riding the coattails of Uber's agreements. Uber passengers pay a premium of like $2-$4 for any ride that originates out of Sea Pines, Palmetto Dunes and that other one.... Lyft was just going along with that, not charging passengers, and just picking up people without paying. When I work HHI, I take down my AMP, and switch 100% to Uber. I won't be a part of Lyft's dishonest practices.
There ARE exceptions - IF your passenger has a PRE-ARRANGED pass, you can go to the pass office, and get the pass for free. I think that's only for Sea Pines.
The fees are definitely punitive for Lyft not playing fair.
Went to pickup with Lyft on Friday night and was told at the gate it would be $10 to get in. So I pulled around called the fare and she agreed to pay the $10 in cash. I then called Lyft to ask about it and the guy had no idea. He told me any time that happens to call and they would put the fee in my account. I asked if they would if it was about 10 times a night? He said yes. He didn’t want to hear that Uber had an agreement and Lyft doesn’t. I told him I didn’t want to carry $100 in cash to pay up front and I wouldn’t be driving Lyft until they got it fixed.
