So I was sitting in a Marriot Hotel parking lot this morning that's located in the middle of an office/park/campus. I've got both apps on and I get pinged. Lyft pings first and I take it. Uber pings a couple seconds later with a ride 3 minutes away (a good chance it was an airport ride or a 5 minute shortie to one of the nearby offices). So I cancel the UBER since LYFT pinged first and I had already accepted the LYFT ride. IT'S 17 MINUTES AWAY! Thru heavy traffic. 10 minutes later I'm halfway to the pickup, stuck in bumper to bumper traffic and the ride cancels. Lyft pays me $0 and here's the message they have in the app: "The rider cancelled this ride because you were scheduled to arrrive later than your original ETA, so this ride isn't eligible for a cancellation fee. Rides like this one don't affect your acceptance rate." And I was actually ahead of the scheduled arrive time because I had already leapfrogged traffic a couple of times. So I'm 10 minutes in, missed a close by UBER ride, AND stuck I'm in traffic. Grrrrr.
