It happens with Uber too, but it seems like all day there are short trips with close pick ups available UNTIL it is Streak time. Then the minutes to pick up get longer and the trips get longer. Lyft has been doing 5 trips for $10 afternoon Streaks in my market, and it has become like a death march, taking me over 2 hours to get 5 trips in. Yesterday they really hit me. I had a 10 mile trip through rush hour traffic, then a 13 mile airport trip, then the 3rd trip was a 22 MINUTES TO PICK UP. Seriously?! So either take the abuse or forfeit the bonus. I cancelled the trip, and lost the bonus. The next trip turns out to be a 22 mile trip out of state in the wrong direction from my house.
