I've never left Uber. I just went from 30 rides per week down to 1

I've had a long time to think about what I would do when Charlotte hit. For certain, I won't do events anymore for any reason. Why would I want to subject myself to Soul crushing traffic and a greater chance to get a ticket for a few extra dollars. It's not worth it for me

Does this mean you’re going back to Uber?

Their stock price is dropping like a rock. They've got to try to convince investors they can be profitable by squeezing the drivers even if there's nothing left to squeeze. It's really the only way they could think of to increase revenues right now. I hope they will lose what little market share they have and file for bankruptcy next year.

Keep it up, Lyft. You're well on your way to bankruptcy. See you at $0.60/share. :coolio:

ALL of this is only going to get worse as both companies go public and not only have to open their books, but constantly satisfy investors. We know how reactionary the market is too. In my opinion, they are only looking to survive long enough until full automation arrives, and even if it doesn’t, those working rideshare during the next few years will bear the burden.

THEY ARE ONLY LOOKING TO PROP UP SHARES UNTIL THE 180 DAY LOCKUP PERIOD ENDS FOR INSIDERS

THEY DONT CARE AFTER THAT

Lyft's app can be down for few months, i probably wouldnt even notice it if it was down or not.
5 years with Uber: almost 2900 trips
3 1/2 years with Lyft: 457 trips
And out of the 457 trips; probably 57 of them were PTd up. No big deal for me.
When Uber brings the flat i will cry n quit but until then im still anting.

So how exactly does this work? From what I read on the Lyfts website, you are guaranteed the extra bonus if you are in the personal zone without mattering if the pax is inside as well or not. If they keep using the same pink areas that appear during PT, then the chances of getting a bonus are now increased. Problem is that Im pretty sure those bonuses will be around $1-3 extra, which is trash.
Does anybody know if there is a conversion betwern PT and PPZ? Like when it was 25%pt now that will mean $1.50 extra, or when it was 75%pt now that will mean $4, something like that?
If they still give consecutive bonuses like $6 for 3 in a row, and you can also get the ppz bonus together, then doing shorties wouldnt be that bad.

Exactly like that. Meaning, they’ll be charging the pax the old PT rates but paying you a couple of dollars out of that massive fare. Heard of upfront pricing? More sugar for ants, they just want drivers not to think about strategy and just drive and accept every ride.
