My operating costs are skyhigh with incredible dead miles this weekend. Dropping off at ACL and getting the heck out of there. Ain't no way I'm driving two miles from Austin High School to pick someone up only to go back down there through the traffic again! One time I left ACL and tried turning on Lyft to use their destination filter and pointed it north, and those bozos still gave me a pax nearby that was going back to ACL!
I did negotiate a smooth $20 tip for allowing some adults to bring their adult beverages in my car. Plus they would cover my costs if I got a ticket. That's the only way I'll ever let booze in my car.
That's interesting TNC! I never thought of negotiating with pax about booze in the car. I just ask them to dump it (and watch my rating get dumped along with it). As for ACL, its 5 p.m. Sunday and I'm still $100 from my goal. I usually don't need to drive on Sundays. I heard that Ride Austin is offering FREE RIDES to pax today. Ride Austin is KILLING it. I'm ready to dump Fasten for them. This ACL killed my profits.
