Does anyone know the calculation that converts Lyfts prime time % to the equivalent surge multiplier? For example if Lyfts prime time is at 25% what is the equivalent surge rate?
It's a 100% true storyThe correct way to calculate Lyft's prime time is 25% = no extra pay, 50% = no extra pay, 75%= no extra pay, 100% = no extra pay, etc, etc..... The point being, Lyfts prime time is a total JOKE. you can be sitting dead center of 100% prime time get a ping 3 minutes away, accept ping believing it's a prime time fare only to find out after the rife competes it's a straight fare. I never drie Lyft at prime time because Uber always is better pay with a known surge price.
The worst part of this of course is taking the low paying Lyft job when I was sitting in a Uber surge, the surge areas and rates don't always line up the same for Uber and Lyft but 90% of the time they do and 80% of the time it's Uber that is surging higher... Plus you know exactly what your pax is paying - LYFT OFF!It's a 100% true story
Happened to me while in the center of 200% took a ride from 2 blocks away to JFK I was thinking of about $180+ but at the drop off total was about $60 with 25% prime time.
I'll never ever repeat this mistake. Uber is a winner in this
