    So, Uber just came to limited cities in Iowa and I'm super new - a whopping 5 rides under my belt. Reading this and other information on the interwebs, lots of drivers say Lyft is better to them and/or they work both.

    Anyone know if/when Lyft might come around here?

    I doubt it will anytime soon. Lyft is much, much smaller than Uber and seems to be concentrated on major cities. I could see it maybe next year once the rideshare pool has grown substantially and there are enough experienced drivers available.

    Perhaps if Lyft would come to DsM, Uber would change rates. We need competition to make a buck.

    I'm not sure you understand how that competition would work out for the drivers...

    I would like to think that perhaps driving for Lyft would have better benefits. I'm not sure how many drivers there are. It doesn't make much a difference to me anyway since I am about to bag this job.

    Competition. Uber may change this if Lyft comes along and allows tips.
