lyft vs uber

  1. Chicago
    Hi, I am currently driving for Lyft. I thought Via would be great in winter as you are confined to the Chicago city limits—no icy burbs. I feel that Lyft incentivized me the first few weeks, but not so much now. They have increased my driver referral bonus (hiring my replacement) and...

  3. Portland
    Why are all the early morning Lyft requests 15+ minutes away? I just drove 18 minutes to Tigard thinking I was getting a sweet 40 minute airport trip. It turned out to be a minimum fare (no bonus, no tip) with a customer complaining that three other drivers before me had cancelled them. 30...
  4. New Jersey
    As a driver, it is good to have options. Compared to this time last year, I've increased my earnings by at least a factor of 1.5, and it has a lot to do with doing both Uber and Lyft. There are pros and cons to both platforms. On Uber, even though I do about twenty rides a week, I get a less...
  5. Lyft
    I am here to learn, I am not trying to criticize. I ask out of sincere curiosity, I can't personally find a single reason to prefer Lyft over Uber. The pings are further away, the pay seems to be lower, (I have just been scrolling through and comparing rides on both apps that were similar...
  6. New Jersey
    Does anybody here drive for Lyft-Only and not Uber? Or maybe there is a time and place where you are able to earn as much doing Lyft as you would doing Uber? If so then please reply with where and when you would suggest. In my experience, Lyft gives fewer pings and those are, on average...

    Do Lyft drivers exercise more than Uber drivers to protect their health? Driving is a sedentary activity, which is notorious for creating numerous health issues, led by becoming overweight. Just walking around your car between fares can make a big difference. While having a personal exercise...
  9. Advice
    I know that Uber Scheduled Rides have been discussed before on the forum, but I'm still not clear on a few points. Is there any way for drivers to distinguish a scheduled ride from a normal ride, before or after start? Do Scheduled Rides tend to be "longer", more profitable trips (like...
  10. Lyft
    Lyft is once again following in Uber's footsteps, but trying to do it better. Despite the perception that Lyft is better to drivers, there are too few actual differences from a driver's perspective between Lyft and Uber. Lyft hopes to convince drivers it is better than Uber with scheduled...

    Just got this text from Lyft Happy Mother's Day from Lyft! Today especially, we're grateful for all the moms on the road - and everyone who goes above and beyond for family. Got nothing from Uber. :( Point to Lyft :D More at https://uberpeople.net/threads/mothers-day.163327/#post-2431280
  12. Minneapolis
    So I drove both Friday and Saturday night and had the opportunity to test out a few Uber/Lyft myths. To be clear these are very unscientific from a small sampling: 1. People in the service industry (waiters/waitresses/bartenders/strippers) understand we are like them so they tip. Conclusion...
  13. San Diego
    So in light of the following: Uber increased the rates in San Diego and conveniently forgot to tell us, they now end up with close to if not more than 50% of the fare with their new twist of upfront pricing... Uber can't seem to get it right on the mileage of the trips anymore... Processing...
