I got a chance to be a Lyft rider for a few days in LA. My very first ride from LAX I got shuffled. High noon, not busy and the driver held back out of sight and started the arrival clock. Then she called and I told her exactly where I was, rideshare station "5E" exactly at the pin location. I let the clock run up to 4:45 and then I cancelled. A minute later she wizzed by in the outer lane. The Lyft app said I was responsible for the cancellation fee because the driver spent 6 minutes traveling toward me. However, when I contested the fee, I was immediately told via the app that the cancellation fee was waved because I had cancelled within the allotted time. This is evil. Lyft charged me a cancellation fee knowing I was not liable for it, nor would the driver get credit for it due to not waiting 5 min, but did not admit so until I called them on it. Therefore, I wonder how many cancellation fees that Lyft collects without crediting the driver.
