    Last week, when I tried to use Uber’s destination filter to get rides back to the airport, after I entered the destination, the button to set the filter was grayed out and disabled. There was no explanation; I just couldn’t use the filter. I ended up going online and Googling “Uber destination...

    Good day, Would like to know if all reservation requests now show the destination information (Name of place or address)? If this is the case, it might be worth accepting even if I have to arrive early at the destination?

    So, please confirm...some LA drivers got the 4/10 accept requirement ( last 10 ridereqst) AND some got the 6/10 accept requirement to see the Destination address in the future?

    Unfortunately, Uber has begun the process of rolling back driver improvements. I guess drivers will have to throttle their pings via high multipliers to discourage receiving “cheap” requests. How long will it take for Uber to institute Prop 22 minimum pay as the base rate for all drivers?

    Does anybody have any luck using their 2 destination filters for really long trips around the state? Like if you wake up early Friday or Saturday and put the destination as Orlando or Miami would you get a bite or just end up in St Augustine? got this great ride from the airport yesterday to St...

  7. Sydney
    Hi Ants, An Uber pool pax showed me an interesting hack in that if you use a major drop off as the destination like Sydney Town Hall or Central Station in the suggested destinations instead of entering a street address like 281 Clarence Street or pointing the pin to anything other than a major...

    I pick up two women going to a movie theater. Younger one is twenty something, older one is fifty something. Very quiet pickup, no sign of trouble. When we get about a block away from the destination, I ask if it’s on the left or the right, because I don’t see a theater. They tell me it’s about...

    In true fashion Lyft would tries to sell this as an improvement... Was 6, now it’s 2. That’s an improvement for them not us.... Lyft's destination mode is shyte anyway but come on....

    Accepted a request from the hood. I hate dead miling it out of there when I’m on a roll, so I just took it. There’s a 6 to 8 year old boy, his mom (with Blue Hair) and Grandma. They are kind of sluggish getting in the car. Blue mom somehow manages to get her phone cord stuck down next to the...

    From the local Uber newsletter ('On the road in Canberra') of 19 June 2019: Did you know? Both you and your rider can edit the destination of a trip. If needed: Tap on the black navigation bar at the top of your screen You'll see a list of turn-by-turn directions Scroll all the way to the...

    anyone else see this? I haven't gotten to test it yet since my acceptance rate is 65% from last week and it doesn't reset anymore due to the rolling 7 days acceptance rate now. Considering trying to get my acceptance rate up to 90% to test it today to see if it's worth it
  13. Reading, PA
    I received my first destinations pay out, drum rolllllll --.... a whopping $3.43. I wasn't expecting it as I drive in Reading, PA. Reading did not have the reduced fare on destination filter so that's why I was not expecting the payout. However, the reason I got it is, by chance, other trips...

    This has been happening for the three months that I’ve been driving. Half of the customers can change the destination, and half of them can’t. I had one of the pax (who could edit) show me their phone, so I can see the edit button. I’ve also seen pictures of what it looks like on the screen. But...
  15. Complaints
    I'm getting customers who don't know how to change the destination, or add a stopping point. I don't know how to show them. I always tell them to swipe up. Some of them find it and some of them can't. I try to figure it out for them, but I can't find it either. Anybody know how?

    Whenever I'm at SFO or the Oakland Airport, I always get the message to drive to the airport for a ride from Lyft after I'm really close to the top of the queue. I was wondering, is the queue still moving while this message is up? I usually wait on Lyft and get a request for Uber, so I can tell...

    First off, my system is my system. It's what works for me. For the most part, it's opposite the mainstream. I use 5 of my 6 DFs during the highly concentrated AM rush. On good days, I get multi trips per DF. Perhaps this simple analysis wouldn't match cucumber to cucumber with your...

    Anyone here ever do destination rides only?

    December 4, 2018 According to a Lyft e-mail today, this feature is making a comeback. FINALLY! The only catch is that your Acceptance Rate must be 90% or better. Copy/Paste from the E-mail: "Coming soon: Preview your destination before tapping Accept. As long as your acceptance rate stays...

    been doing LYFT for about 2 weeks now, and my app will sometimes not make a sound when a new request pops up. What this means is that if I am not looking at the app I am getting dinged for missing a ride.... Also, is there a way to see the rider's destination? I actually start off with, "So...
