I think it's the end of the boost or guarantee. I loved the boost though.

The past few weeks I have driven uber mostly, almost 99% of my rides the past two weeks. If the boost ends, I will start taking more Lyft rides. Driving for Lyft makes me feel better anyways, for obvious reasons. At times I feel guilty when taking fewer Lyft rides compared to uber. lol. I hope they ratchet up their incentives. Let's see

Boost again, but it's a joke. Won't be doing a whole lot of driving this weekend, unless there is a whole lot of surge. How can they only offer 1.5 at the most for the weekend? That includes Friday night rush hour.

Hourly again. Hopefully this will continue and they are targeted enough to notice that I sat out for two weeks when they kept sending me Boost. You think they would have been smart enough in the first place not to give Boost to someone who lives 30 miles from the Loop.

I had the exact same situation. Took some time of when they gave me boost and back at on hourly. Boost is useless to suburban drivers who have a system that works for them.

Only 1.2x 7-9pm is a slap in the face, yet there was no surge going on, drivers were driving. Crazy people.

I got the hourly guarantee in the 30s. Best one is Saturday, 10pm-4am $34/hr. Usually the only hours I drive for the entire week. These could be higher... like come on. Or I want boost. I'm in the burbs, but deadhead 9miles to Midway and I always get a ride into the city, so it isn't that bad. Saturday night boost at 1.5-1.6x and half the rides are usually surged higher than that, turns out way better than the hourly.

I also got hourly... received at 9am on Friday, and it seems to be the same as U for U.
Yesterday afternoon was slow in Schaumburg, so I essentially had to drive myself into the city... I realized that on boost you don't need to get a fare to pay you to drive into the city since you end up with the same pay at the end of the day (as long as you qualify!)
