4.86 after 524 rides. It was 4.8 but a pax 2 starred me over the weekend because he didn’t know how to add an additional stop and wanted me to wait while he went on his house for “a minute”, then take him somewhere else. I said No and gave him a safe clean 43 minute ride to his original destination.

I dropped to a 8.5 this weekend because a couple of drunks made a mess in my car and they were not happy to get a clean up fee.

If you have a true 5.0 lyft ( not a 4.96 rounding up 5.0) and a 100% acceptance rate , Lyft will
Open up your closed app and give you rides..multiple times..
You just have to accept it.
You will get pings to milliOn dollar homes.
You will get queues 5 minute before
You drop your customer

Tips will be close to 50-60%of the customers.
I know 1 lady driver who has a 5.0, and she showed me her rides. Her tip sheet
Was like 5 in a row tips, then 2-3 non tip, then 4 in a row tip. She drives a sonata 2016???? Hyundai i think.(rental program) And she is not hot, little on the hefty side.

Last night I went from a 4.92 to 4.88 on Uber. I got a 1 & 2 star. I assume the 1 star was from the college kids with open containers I made dump and then charged a cleaning fee.

Also, I went from 4.96 to 4.99 on Lyft.

4.89, over 1000 trips. Once you get 350 or so trips, you will stop sweating your rating so much. If you are 4.8'ish with 350 trips, the your rating will not fluctuate nearly as much, and certainly not enough to jeopardize your activation, and the whole rating stress thing disappears. Also, if you are like most, a lot of the lower ratings come early. There is a learning curve, so as you get over 500 trips, the bad start will roll off the moving average.

Yeah, I've read that they'll deactivate you at 4.5 or lower. But they've always said that's for ALL your trips combined, so if you have a week where, for some reason, you get 4.0 it doesn't mean you're below 4.5 over all. I get bad rankings sometimes, too. Seemingly for no reason. It seems to happen when I pick someone up that is in a foul mood. Like they give me a low ranking because they're pissed off at someONE or someTHING. I don't think they realize that they could get drivers deactivated for that. I, too, great each with a smile, open the door if possible, offer ice-cold water, charging cords for just about everything, give me directions or use my GPS, give me some different turns than the GPS gives and it'll re-route, music, conversation, swing them through drive-throughs, multiple stops without telling Uber that'll ding them more- just want to get them to where they need to go safely.

Uber is getting under my skin as well. Since they hiked their commission I haven't gone out (I'm working a full-time I.T. contract right now). I get an email from them stating that because I haven't gone out in like 4 weeks they'll deactivate my account unless I do at least one trip within the next two weeks. I'm going to have my brother ping me while he's standing next to my car, take him down the street and stop the fare, then pay him the $5 or whatever! I have a bunch of referrals out there that I'm not going to lose if they ride.

With the infrequent and often times long pick up calls (some are 30 mins. away) down in Orange County, CA I burn way to much fuel for this to be profitable, even minus the mileage. Sometimes I'll drive 30 mins. to pick someone up, then drop them off to a location 10 mins. away. Then drive away back toward where I was. I emailed Uber about it, saying that they need to take into account the distance of the ride before sending us way out to pick someone up. Between gas, insurance, car washes, ice for the cooler to keep the water cold, water, etc. I'm almost paying Uber to drive for them- then they take 20% and drop the fares on us. Really? Oh well, I guess they'll just find another driver. I do this in my spare time more to make sure I keep a drunk off the road. Makes me feel good in a way. If it weren't for the fact that the job was a piece of cake and there wasn't the possibility of a $250 referral commission once in a while I'd send all their crap back.
I have a 4.96 with over a 1000 trips, i don't offer water, chargers or candy, I think most people just want a good ride and want to get from point A to point B they don't want candy or water. most trips are in the 10 min range why waste time giving water or candy.

989 rides. Last Monday 4.96. This Monday 4.93. 3 effing 1 stars in a week. Had 2 in the last 10 months. Passengers are a fricking joke. 1 guy gave me a 1 Star cause I refused to discuss the kav circus. Now I cancel all uber trips if I get lyft ping before my pax gets in the car.

4.98 but only 308 rides under my belt and only 205 of them rated. Got a 2 Star the other night and can’t think of one rider that was unhappy about something. It’s great reading this blog and realizing some people are just dirtbags who enjoy a little power and no matter what you do they’ll give a low rating.

4.89 lyft (2 1 stars in one trip a stupid **+^ order a lyft shared in Newark NJ going to the city and ofcourse i got matched to someone going to Hoboken, took around 2;30 hours during prime time, one told me im taking a longer route so i got so frustrated and asked her to continue the trip in silence or to get out of my car hence the 1 star)

Over 7,500 trips and a 4.96 rating (the last time I checked). My rating has fluctuated between 4.94 and 4.98 since July 2017. However, I no longer check my rating or check feedback because there is no benefit to do so when you periodically get that rider who unfairly rates you no matter how perfect the ride was.
