    This happened just a short while ago. J----- texted me about 1 minute after I arrived with the above. I think I was pretty clear with how much time she had. She didn't make it. I think she should have perhaps said "Hello! Be out in 5 minutes." This still wouldn't have gotten her a ride. If...

    I show up for an X request, and it’s 5 college girls. I tell them I can’t take 5 so the girl say, how about if we cancel the ride and order an XL. So they get out and order an XL, but on a different phone. So the timer is still running on the X ride. The girl says the XL ride went to a different...

    Strange one last night just after midnight. I get a ping that is 10 minutes away. A little long for my tastes, but I'm coming home from a movie, and the Ping is near my house. I was going home anyway. I'm curious why the long ping, but maybe Monday night after midnight in a rainstorm means...

    Lyft ping, it is a scheduled ride. I wonder which driver just got shafted out of their scheduled ride? Arrive at the apartment complex and wait. After 3 minutes I call and let it ring once. Gotta make sure I get my cancel fee, if they don't show. Destination: about 2 miles away. Minimum ride...

    A strange PAX last night at 1:30am (I know, I know - that is when they come out to play.) Got a ping to a Motel 6 in Mississauga. It's pretty far - 7 minutes. It is a slow night and I have got a full battery, so why not, I think. Hotel pings at that hour are usually going to a strip club or...

    Was down by OMSI, got a ping near Produce Row. As I head over there I hear DING DING DING DING DING DING and a freight train rolls on in. Damn. Pax is just on the other side of it! Texted the pax, "Unless you want to hop that train to get in my car, you might want to cancel the ride, or you...

    Hey gang anyone have questions about child car seats? 169.685 SEAT BELT; PASSENGER RESTRAINT SYSTEM FOR CHILDREN. You can read the actual statute above on Mn revisor legislative site . As you can see it states a car for hire such as a taxi or limousine is exempt. So we're exempt we don't need...

    Since a while now, all cancellations for; no car seat, too many riders & unaccompanied minor (may b more than just these 3) dissapear from history, i call & support says I have to wait up to 48 hrs for the trips to appear & get the cancel fee, 48 hrs go by & nothing, then i call back & first...

    See screenshot. Lyft shows a 5 minute time between order and cancel, and on the same screen tells me the cancel happened in under 2 minutes, so no money for me. I called and the gave me the $5, thankyouverymuch. But... is this the same "technology company" that wants to use AI to maneuver...
  10. Philadelphia
    This is the first time I received more than the usual $3.75 when a long pickup fee was not included. I noticed time and mileage is broken down on this one. Is this something new?

    Got a request to pick up James Harden. Got there waited the 5 minutes and cancelled on him....guess we’ll never know ig was the real him.
  12. Portland
    is it just me or did Lyft change their cancel fee time back to 5 minutes after request rather than the 2 minutes? I had a really smart pax request a ride tonight, at about 1:20am. Pax proceeded to call me and ask if I could pick him up at 2:15. I clarify that he isn’t trying to change his...

    Got a Lyft ping 3 minutes away. I get there in just about 2 mins. Cancelled on me. Pull into the parking lot, check the app. Son of a b... no cancel fee paid. I check the details. Lyft says it was under 2 minutes. The request time and the cancel time were 2 minutes apart, it COULD have been...

    Rush hour. On one side of a big ass river. Get a Lyft ping to do a 45+ pickup at a house on the other side of river. Only way to get there is to go down the road, get on the highway, take the next exit, and go a lotta blocks. But it's rush hour.... Lyft says 7 minutes away. Any other time of...
  15. Portland
    I am optimistic that the changes with U/L regarding paying extra for picking up longer fares will be beneficial. Beginning of Oct I started ignoring fares that were over 8 minutes away (cuz I cant hit max PDB anymore). I didnt realize how many 12 minute pings I was actually getting every day...

    Hi guys .... its happened again ... PAX have gamed the Uber platform... I have a PAX change the pickup address to across the street in the final 30 sec to reset the clock so they have more time b4 the no show cancel fee applies... Just putting it out there..... I said nothing however this is...

    oh well...

    In adjacent Upstate-NY, Lyft effectively pays more than Uber for identical minimum fare trips and perhaps others as well. Even though the published rates are almost identical, this is because For new drivers (6/2017), the Lyft Cut is 25%, where the Uber Cut is 30%. Lyft does not always deduct...

    I have noticed that they have a very clear strategy. Please read this carefully as it will save you money and time as well as make sure Lyft doesn't hold onto our commission free payments. It will also probably help bump your rating up a few points when you get rid of those driver cancellations...

    Aren't you supposed to get a Cancel Fee when a rider does not show up at the Pin and you wait for 5 minutes ? Yesterday I accepted an Uber X request and go wait at the Pin. The Pax does not show up for over 2 minutes and I call the Pax. One the Pax sounded like a very old person and could barely...
