Sad too. $6.00 is actually a 3X. It would be a very different outlook with the multiplier.
Atleast bar close came through a little tonight for uber. Lyft nothing till 2:15 and that $12 bonus only lasted a couple minutes then dropped dramatically $2.79 lol. Oh multiplier and primetime where have you gone, I miss you baby.

I don't get it either. Lyft was trying to get me to go to a pz on centennial campus at 1:45am for 2.50.

I did something new for me last night. I have pro so at 1:45 when surge was 8 bucks I rejected 3 long trips until I got a 6 minute trip. Hustled over, got them home and rushed back to get a $14 surge to finish the night. A nice way to squeeze an extra trip in without missing peak surge.

This is totally screwed. Last night should have been an easy 200+ night, there was plenty of demand out there. I did a nice select ride to the concert for 30 bucks (which still took an hour total) but no way I'm going to be a monkey in that circus afterwards working for peanuts and I don't want to play the cash ride game.

I thought that LYFT drivers did it because of the bonuses they offered 95 trips for an extra 145 or something like that. I opened my app and saw that promotion was gone. 95 rides a week is overkill anyway, but I feel for people who are doing those rides without any incentive. Not to mention LYFT passengers, as I remember, always had extra stops. The majority of my stops were always done on lyft. No primetime, no incentives, and taking a loss...I am starting to see how many people would be struggling had they not had the good fortune of being born in this country. The financial decisions, and the way Americans look at the business model is sad. I understand though, it is human to not plan for the future.
