New Lyft Driver in KC

Watch out for potholes... Don't take any Lyft pickups that are over 8 minutes away. If you are out south and Uber is surging expect to get constant Lyft pings from 18-20 minutes away.

Welcome to the forums, noticed your from the Kansas side, I will give you 1 free tip for a good location that's often ignored... Legands Shopping Mall area and Hollywood Casino. I get a lot of taxi calls out from that area, about half the rides are into town on Fridays and Saturday evenings, good opportunity to book cash return trips...sssh I didn't say that. There is a large tech employer in the area, lots of lux apartments and young working professionals that use uber/lyft when ever they head into the city like Westport, the Crossroads, or the Sprint Center.

Bad thing about being in that area is usually get pulled into the KCK crapper of State Line and Parallel to the east.

Thanks. I live out that way and started two of my days at Hollywood. And yes, I always get pulled north and east. I ended up in Liberty more than once. Not bad, a good run there and back both times.

I have accepted every ride so far, even queued ones. My third day, I got two PPZs for $18+. Is that related or is the "ignore requests more the 8 minutes out" the common reccomendation?

Thanks again for the info. I'll take whatever suggestions I can get.
