    What good about $2.98 trips is that when China overpower US and capture everyone, I wouldn't have problem to adapt to practically free labor. But on the serious note, does anyone think this is some kind of serious money in Boston? These deliveries I made in a late evening between Mattapan and...

    I didn't. Usually offered one for at least 75 trips which I never hit.

    I was just wondering if anybody else has received promotion for this weekend? On my app it doesn’t show me promotion nor it shows me the Saturday promotion are we going to drive without the promotion this weekend? 😌

    (1) Lower rate of pay. (2) Likely to receive lower rating. (3) Less likely to receive a tip (4) When you drop off the first rider you might find that the next riders location is miles away and it’s the same place as your first pick up so you driver back (5) Much more likely to have some...

    Here is how you make $300 a day with the new Uber rates... First, you must drive WITH A PAX IN YOUR VEHICLE for 8 hrs straight. Maybe you’ll be lucky and drive Miss Daisy. Miss Daisy MUST BE in your vehicle on-app for the full 8 hours and you MUST DRIVE EXACTLY 30 mph. .66 /mile X 30 mph X 8...

    TL;DR -- Don't use Lyft as a passenger. Use Uber. I went to the Sox game on Monday night so I parked in the city near Boston Common and decided to take a Lyft over to Fenway.. had to get the true rider experience. From this I learned two things: (a) Lyft as a passenger experience is horrible...

    Had a 13.00 surge at Logan. Rider went to Billerica. 35 minutes and 27 miles. Fare said surge was 13.00. Never adjusted for long trip. Called the support-bots and was told that the surge amounts from Logan are never adjusted for distance or time. It's always flat. Anyone else even hear about...

    I read that Boston drivers can drive in Rhode Island, Mass, Vermont, and Maine. As a RI driver can I do that? Change to a Boston driver? If yes, how do I do that? I live in RI, which is a very small state. I'd really like to expand a little. Thanks for your comments

    Yesterday I picked a rider up from Logan Airport and Uber didn’t charge the passenger the airport fee, airport fee is 3.25 for every trip from the airport.

    Hello everyone! As a new rideshare driver in the Boston area, doing both Uber and Lyft, it would be great to learn from fellow drivers. I am a student currently on summer break looking to save money for school and raise capital to start a business. My plan is to take a year off and raise as...

    Updated my app and noticed a new map for Boston. Anyone else get this? I think this more accurately represents the city than the old one IMHO.

    So most would call this a dream come true, but as a Lyft driver it's obviously dangerous territory and on top of that I'm engaged.. so I took it in good spirit. I was in Boston driving around Fenway Park waiting for pings when I got one from a nearby apartment on Park Dr by the Fens. The ping...
