And the 1864 new drivers they signed up while you were doing copy and paste don’t know any different.

The problem is that drivers are too dumb to factor true cost of their cars vs devaluation and maintenance. They won’t get it... they willl still seee as I can make $200 in nite while driving 600 miles totals with long pings and reduce cuts

Doing some number crunching I came up with a roughly 30% overall pay cut when applying the new rates to my previous 10 Lyft rides.

The only rides I could see being possibly profitable would have to be very long in miles and minutes to pickup..Then a real shorty to final destination.. The odd's are against getting many of those in my market..

Barely breaking even with lyft at the current rates so .rarely use them.now. No choice but to drop them for good, not that they care, if or when the new "improved" rates make it here.

everything else cancelled or ignored per the rights i excercise, id rather not have to avoid 90+% of the blank slavery requests, someone from farther getting em

Im a 4%er actually 1 still know its 90% human trafficking attempts and spreading that easily verifiable fact but like riders its in the app store & the police lerting me accept pings and uber lyft sends em with their immunity so here we are self presevation in an app woohoo

Obviously driver's will have to charge a la carte pricing for things Lyft suggests for a good rating but does not require.

Aux cord rental ... $10
Phone charging cord rental $1
Radio Unlock ... $1
Station Change ... $1
Sun/Moonroof Open ... $3
Unlock Window Child Locks ... $5
Outside vented air ... Free
AC unlock ... $1

I know we are required to have working AC but are we actually required to use it?

Heat unlock ... $1
Heated seat Unlock ... $2
Water ... $3
Mint (2) ... $1
Luggage that will not fit in trunk ... $5 per bag

Information charges
How long have you worked for Lyft? ... $1
Is this your real job? ...$1
Do you like working for Lyft ... $1
Tell me your funniest Lyft story ... $5

Other charges
Guaranteed five stars ... $5


If a rider has a 4.9 or above they can just add through the tip option. Riders below 4.9 or (new) must pay with cash.

Riders 4.9 and up have four hours to tip and then they will be lowered to one star.

Best thing is you could put a Lyft a la carte pricing guide in your car even if you only drive for Uber just as a conversation piece.
Service levels should adjust in step with earnings reductions.

I can't believe u guys r still driving for these rates. These companies r crazy. U can make more money as a pornstar and porn is free on the internet.
I'm kinda old and fat is there any companies you could recommend to hire me?
I dont wanna do the gay stuff and
I'm not very good looking either..

I've been driving for uber so possibly wouldnt mind being flogged I dont guess. You can be my agent but I'll be driving till the best offers come pouring in....
Post automatically merged:


But say they are raising their prices....
The drivers need to quit driving for lyft as they roll out these new prices. They have changed policy before they could do it again. #nomorepaycuts

Well while you are long hauling if the pax cancels neither the driver or lyft will get anything...
Obviously that would be a whammy.

Long hauling Lyft pickups strategy should be referred to as PYL after the old game show Press Your Luck.

The main goal should be to achieve maximum speed while choosing an indirect route to the customer.

We need YouTube rideshare gurus posting dash cam footage of themselves speeding to their Lyft pickup while chanting, "come on, big money, big money, no whammies!"

This practice should also be referred to as printing money as often as possible to enhance new driver experience.

Seriously, think of all the referral income possibility while encouraging the next generation of Lyft drivers.

See that’s where drivers who have done this for awhile become entitled. These companies sign up drivers by the bushel every day. They don’t give a damn about the “struggling” ones. They CANNOT wait to get if the veteran drivers. Do you think Uber and Lyft think to themselves “ooooh we have drivers that are threatening to quit, we’re screwed”.
I've only been doing this for three months. It was good money except for maybe 2.5 weeks of those three months. I don't think Uber is trying to get rid of me or anyone else, their business model is dependant on having as many drivers active for as long as possible. If anything, if they wanted to get rid of drivers, they would just deactivate all of the drivers who are low rated and have low acceptance ratings.

And if wanting to be paid what I believe is a reasonable, livable wage makes me entitled, then I will wear its crown and be known as King of Entitlement.

Lyuber is screwed if they continue on their current business path. They will have to start caring about their drivers who struggle sooner or later. Eventually, they will have hired all that they could have possibly hired and end up losing more drivers than they can hire. The only ones who remain will be those who have another source of income (such as retirees) or those who are incapable of doing anything else other than sitting in a car and taking orders from an app.

Unless there is a breakthrough with autonomous vehicles in the near future, LyUber will have to come to terms with their drivers one way or another.

They won’t care... how you think we got here.... they will still be dumb drivers driving a 100% lost. It’s time to get your exit strategy. Las Vegas and new cities won’t push back against it. Just like Charlotte surge..... Charlotte drivers didn’t do shit when they could have...

it's different when everyone in the same boat now, i remember being x over $1.10 hearing about the cut to .60 in some markets when i was still xl only at 1.85 like no way im doing it at 1.10 lmao who tf is doing it for .60 so i wont be suprised at folks doing it at .45 or whatever the new cut

but now outside ny and a handful of markets everyones in the same .60 a mile boat so more empathy less elitism so its easier to come together uber lyft messed up bringing everyone down to the same level theres no half the country clowing the other half they all sharing the same pain lol

just more pax getting cancelled in ignored & waiting 20+ minutes for a future failure

drivers DO DO shat 96% of them fail its been bottom of the barrel uber lyfts new plan is to only have drivers that cant even afford a car & get them driving 40 hours a week in their rental programs for the privilege of driving a rental

but the not so populous markets are running low on suckers to churn thru

xl only
x pool is loss leader
select & black can make money but depreciation & demand really not much

they truly dont care though desperate exploitablea will still sign up to see for themselves & 96% will fail most won't even get to 100 rides

In the end, the amount of drivers willing to drive at a loss will not be enough to sustain LyUber. It’ll take time, but everyone will realize they cant pay their rent and bills and have to abandon ship.

Drivers didn’t think it could get any worse and are either hopeful that other drivers will quit en mass, forcing LyUber to raise the pay rates or hope that the Government will regulate them (happened in NY and is going to happen in Cali).

I can see Lyft trying to underpay more than they currently do, but they’ll realize their mistake when less and less drivers accept their pings and force them to go back up on the rates.

Just like some people working in the steel industry as entertainment. They say they get to play with female steelworkers during their shift, chit chat and socialize with other steelworkers. Whether they do it for hobby or not, steelworkers have a wage problem in the steel industry. Steelworkers income has been dropped drastically over the years just like rider share workers income dropped from $3/ mile to $0.60/mile. The main problem is the cheap imports from China and cheap labor availability in the U.S. which is being solved by the U.S. government's policies to protect American steelworkers. And the U.S. government is working to solve the problem. The goal is improving steelworkers income and a better future for their families.

Now i repeat my question; if American steelworkers (those who do it as a hobby and pros) are being protected by the U.S government how come rideshare drivers ( those who do it as a hobby and pros) get nothing?
The us gov shouldn't be protecting anyone's steel jobs. If china wants to sell us steel at below cost than we should buy as much of it as possible until they decide not to anymore. If everyone loses their steel job in America because of that then tough. Trump needs to end all these tariffs and let the free market dictate where the economy goes.

You can't have a free market in which one participant, a communist nation, subsidizes and dumps a product on the market making competition impossible. Eventually there will only be one producer and then there is no market.

Plus, domestic capacity to produce steel could have strategic value for our common defense which is something you actually want your government concerned about.

Hogwash. The government protected the car industry. What did we get. Ford cars that exploded on impact and a company that didn't fix it because the settlements were cheaper. Gm with their ignition switches that would cause the car to lose power and crash. Didn't want to fix that either. We will get bailed out who cares. Let's not forget the Cadillac cimmaron.You r a socialist commie not china

We have been screwing china for years. Not the other way around. We send them little pieces of green paper that we print and they send us millions of products for cheap that they work their ass off to make. If china was smart they would let their currency trade on the free market,dump all their us bonds for gold and their people would become rich. Their currency would shoot up which would lower the cost of living for 1.2 billion Chinese.
