These Guarantees Are Horse-Butt

In sf market lyfts been guaranteeing an hourly rate and I feel it's during slow times (from my analyzation) and to get more drivers out there. From doing lyft for 1 year then going on uber as well, uber surges higher and is more known on the outskirts. Compared to lyft.

I'm doing a bunch of non-surge rides which I wouldn't normally do! It's insane!

But it got me on the road though. But I am sitting more. Pay me to sit. (Like a real job).

Anyway I'm a pawn in their scheme I admit it. And I feel surge is nonexistent because of the extra drivers trying to get the guarantee.

I got tired of driving the after midnight crowd. Plus, weekend nights have been the worst for me lately. Out of town drivers flood the area because of the guaranteed 25% PT, I'm lucky to get 1 ping per hour. Screenshot from last weekend at 1am... looked like this all over town...

Well youre at second street. Its like a 1 mile street with 20 bars on it. I still cant drive down that street without getting a ping.

Interesting, but why stress when all you need is one ride and you can basically sit at home and get the money the rest of the hour. I changed my mind these guarantees rock!

First time I've been offered the guaranteed hours. I just wish they would offer similar hours...
Even though I'm no longer driving past midnight, I'm going to give 1 ride between 12am to 1am and go hide for the rest of the hour. Should be an easy $45 for 2 hours of not much driving since 90% of LBC rides are less than 2 miles. Gives me enough time to watch a movie in my car.

Those hours are horse-butt. Wonder why they're not asking for the weekday commute hours. But yes that's what I'm going to do today. It's the last day of guarantees.
