uber & lyft

  1. Washington DC
    Lots of news agencies reporting on this since this broke today... But Baltimore Sun did a decent job of summarizing the bill. On Wednesday, Hogan said the state submitted an application to the Federal Emergency Management Administration, or FEMA, for a grant that would pay $300 in extra...

    ok I am a minority. In my view and based on my experience serving minorities with Lyft, Uber and Uber Eats; - you are less likely to get a tip. - you are more likely to get low rating for no fault of yours. - more likely to get wrong directions / unclear note. - less likely to hear " thank...
  3. San Francisco Peninsula and South Bay
    What’s happening in the bay area? Did people boycott uber and we aren’t aware or what ?
  4. Complaints
    I recently had 4 separate rides on both apps indicate they were paying a surge price, however; NO SURGE WAS LISTED ON MY END OR EVEN SHOWED UP ON THE MAP. I went home and ran the numbers and found BOTH Uber and Lyft were charging riders 25-50% extra on rides during busy times and were only...
  5. Seattle
    Signed up to do Uber/Lyft a month and a half ago. Got TNC Decal, Seattle Business License and other documents a week ago. I have "all" documents uploaded to Uber/Lyft. I drive a Toyota Camry Hybrid SE Limited Edition. Lyft lets me do Airport Pickups. Very good. With Uber, when driving past the...

  7. Lyft
    Just when I thought Uber couldn't get any crazier with it's serious consideration of a drone delivery UberEats service. Keep this driver in your prayers https://www.foxnews.com/travel/lyft-driver-has-mental-breakdown-during-ride-california-passenger-says.amp

Any insight will be greatly appreciated from fulltime...
  9. Advice
    I have some questions for drivers that drive for both Uber and Lyft. In my area, Uber seems to be more popular (about 5:1 unless I'm near the airport then can only use Lyft), so I mainly only have the Uber app on constantly and then only turn the Lyft app on when im waiting for an Uber ping...
  10. Lyft
    Hi All, I’m trying to decide to rent a car w/ Lyft through their express drive program which requires a $250 rental deposit up front, then costs $200 per week for the rental. They do lower that weekly price if you hit a certain number of rides per week. Another plus is that they deduct the...
  11. Vehicles
    Hey guys! I’m planning to get Suburban to start doing SUV. How it is in south Florida? Miami area. I’m new in this industry, any advice? Thanks!
  12. Philadelphia
    Went out for a drive last night around 8PM and the Uber app couldn't stop beeping and surging the entire time around my neighborhood! Made around $200 in less than 4 hours! If you want to make some good money please come to Villanova University Surroundings; I feel that we all should help each...
  13. People
    Hi, I'm a recovering ride-share driver living in San Diego. I have an abundance of stories - as I'm sure you ALL do! Care to share? I look forward to getting to know this place!
  14. Advice
    So, it's been awhile since I've done a pick up. I could go out and do one, but I really haven't had to rely on Uber or Lyft now for a long period of time as my only source of income. I know it might help me make a few more bucks here and there, but now I just don't know if I'm motivated anymore...
  15. Complaints
    1) Bring back old surge system 2) No more split shares where Uber gets more than the driver. 3) Any change to the system that affects drivers earning must be welcomed (voted yes) by drivers before launched. Boycott Uber on July 4th. They think they can hurt our pockets without any consequences...

    I had a guy off his best price for a butt cheek tattoo, an Obama impersonator, and some awesomely drunk folks. Another wild night in the A
  17. San Francisco
    So I’m curious what factors weigh in on the lack of traffic downtown over the past cpl weeks. I’m not complaining by any means but it’s been bizarre for SF to be so easy to navigate even with the giants at home, during am/pm rush, and with some major conferences (RSA, Blockchain) in town. I...
  18. New York City
    Anyone hear about WAPANDA app? I keep getting information they are starting in Jersey City and only charge $1 or $2 in fees and we take the rest. Wondering if anyone is using this?
  19. Technology
    I am looking for reviews on both Uber & Lyft's services. Has anyone used the taxi services of Uber & Lyft on the same day? If yes, What was the 1 core difference you noticed? Which one do you think is better, and why? I have used Uber's taxi service, but haven't used Lyft yet.

    Posted this in a thread but it applies to most of the complaints Drivers voice from day to day in the forums. Someone suggested it needed a thread of its own: REMINDER: The entire business model of transportation disruption is built upon exploitation... exploitation of unenforced/able...
