Destination filters. Do they work?

4376 Views 48 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Agent99
Been using the Lyft destination filter since it began. Turn it on all over the area and at different times--airport, eastside, Lynnwood, etc.

Not one ride yet.

It's now arrived on my Uber account and I'm curious if anyone has had any success with this?

I'm thinking the only benefit could be in using it near hotels, ferries, and cruise ships when I want a long fare to airport, etc. Could be especially useful @ places/events with lots of people such as stadiums/arenas.

Anyone use it?

It doesn't seem to be effective, but your mileage may vary.
Can the destination filter be used for faraway places and do you get people wanting to go that route along the way?

I mean, if I want to go generally south from Seattle, could I put in Olympia and get anybody generally heading southward to pick up and drop off along the route? Or would it only pair me with people specifically trying to Lyft to Olympia?

North = Bellingham
South = Portland

That would be sweet to Lyft from Seattle to Portland!
Estimate Lyft Trip Cost from Seattle to Portland = $200 !

The time would be 3 hours and mileage would be 173.9 mi via I-5

However, that 100-mile radius max would prevent this scenario.

Estimated Lyft trip from Seattle to Olympia would be $100

The time cost is about an hour and mileage is 61 miles.

You'd be required to deadhead back though, Lyft is not in Olympia, or even south of Tacoma...
