True, funny is I'm thinking of switching to green
I don't know if it's a good or bad thing for greens but last night I was at a street corner waiting for the light to cross. A green cabbie pulls up convinced that I wanted a car and he just starts repeating himself: no meter! no meter! and I'm saying no. And he kept going: no meter! I had to tell him I wasn't looking for a car so he could move on. Do the green cars have to use the meter? The guy just reeked of desperation and I felt bad for him.
And to get back on topic. As much as I like JUNO the no tipping function until we launch has gotten annoying. When I put in 8-10 hours I get about $20-30 on tips with Lyft.

Greens are required to use their meter, just like yellows.
Thanks I didn't know. Does that include when you call their base for a pick up?
When doing a base pick up they have a flat rate like any other livery car. Pretty much green cabs are livery cars with the ability to pick up on the street. Livery cars and black cars are not allowed to pick up street hails, even though most livery cars pick up anyways.

The "no meter" part is because a great deal of people in low income neighborhoods don't like the meter, they perfer a flatrate. They don't like the uncertainty of the price when it comes to the meter.

I remember driving yellow and always have people complain that the meter is moving faster than usual. I used to calm them down by giving them a pretty good estimate on how much it was gonna come up to
Thanks Lenny.
