Grizzled Uber veteran here (six years, nearly 19K trips), and I'm in the market to replace my car. Make/model is unimportant (though it will be Comfort eligible), but it will have Android Auto/Apple Car Play capability.

Question: What if Uber/Lyft stopped trying to control the information asymmetry and actually empowered their driver-partners to do the job on the driver’s terms?
This is not about increasing rate-cards, or adding increased incentives, other than potential job satisfaction. No, this is about...
I got approved for all requirements for LYFT.
But when I try to go online, it says I should finish my application. When I click the link I see nothing but "approved" status.
What am I missing here? Anyone have up-to-date contact details for LYFT?
While I know $6k monthly sounds optimistic, I'd like to work out the numbers to see what makes sense.
Monthly expenses: - $1500
Cost for 2014prius with 60k miles: - $15,000

I ask this question, because the recent stimulus bill that Biden passed extend unemployment benefits to September of this year. This means if you’re collecting unemployment right now, and you were extended to September, that you could just keep on collecting until that runs dry. So, for those...
I got fired by Lyft as deactivating my account...DESPITE THE FIVE STAR RATING AVERAGE with the (fake) badge notation of achievement.
Because, I uploaded the photo of insurance, alongside photo of DL, to Lyft account with the expiration date of late January, and I got approved to work for Lyft...
Anyone else tested if the booked time was off while letting lyft do the calculations?
I picked up my first ride right after going online and did not stop until the last passenger. Every trip was auto accepted by lyft meaning there was no downtime. (Booked time starts accumulating after...

Rideshare companies Uber and Lyft have committed to reducing their carbon emissions in the coming years, but there's little holding them accountable to make sure they reach their goals. (Michael...
