I've only been doing this 4 months but the day before Thanksgiving I got a Maricopa to far North Glendale. 75 miles. 1 hr 10 min. I live in Maricopa and was hoping for a few airport runs being the day before Thanksgiving. It was a college student who's grandma paid for the ride!

Great run! I do at least 1-2 50 mile+ runs a week. I wish I found a Flagstaff run I love it up there!

Yeah, I love those long runs. I was picking up at the airport last week and the PAX wasn't at Rideshare yet but there was this old lady trying to figure out how to use her phone to order a uber. She was going to Casa Grande. I showed her how but I was like damn, I could of had a 45 dollar fair and just went home since I'm in Maricopa. I love Flagstaff too. My wife and I go up there all the time in the summer to escape the heat.
 
Sunday night back in August. . N. Scottsdale to Prescott. Offered me In-N-out. single rider but order me up at Lyft Plus rate. 180ish on the meter. no joke, tipped me $200 in cash.

I knew right then, I would never have a better trip.

Deadheaded all the way home

Damn would have been cheaper to fly!!! How did this ride start out?
Well it started out by getting a call at 11pm from three chicks in Tempe. They have two big suitcases and one small one. When I ask them where are they flying, the response was not what I expected. She said "ohhh well you apparently did not look at your phone?" I said "what do you mean?" She followed that up with the last 9 or 10 drivers declined the trip. So I swipe to start the trip and it shows Las Vegas. Being a casino dealer myself I said lets go :smiles: they were thrilled to death. The older girl says we could not get a flight this late at night and we have been drinking so we could not get a rental car. Anyway long story short we got pizza and wings along the way and I had a blanket in my storage area so we used that as a cover so the seats would not get dirty. It was a blast.

I am not sure what the longest XL ride ever was but I have to be up there.

I drove a drunk woman in loops around all Phoenix for 3 hours at her request. This was in the morning. She kept telling me she wanted to sober up before showing up to work. I finally drop her off back at her house. About $180 total fare.

Holy crap. Seven hundred is exactly what we charge for a Vegas run. I've done it twice. Last one was about two years ago from The Candy Store. My two pax come out hammered drunk and said Vegas. I told them I need money up front and that they will both be passed out before I get to Wickenburg. They gave me $800 and said "no way, we won't pass out". At 5:30 am I'm waking them up in the parking lot of Caesar's. It took a couple minutes for them to get their wits together, but they asked me to stay a night and drive them back. No friggin way. I know I would blow the money and on a more business sense, our commercial insurance is void in other states. You have to buy a supplemental policy and it cost around $75 a day. They gave me another $200 and I hauled %#* back to Phoenix. Almost 600 miles round trip and 9 1/2 hours.

I still haven't a ride over 25 miles :-( I keep hoping for a trip up too Flagstaff. If I ever get one I'm just going to hang out up there and drive since the rates are better and last time I checked there where zero select cars

You definitely don't want to drive in Flag this time of year. The pax will ruin your carpeting within a week with all that cinder and snow up there.

If you want better chances of long rides hang out around Apache & Rural Rd.
