JOIN and drive for Lyft.
When uber is the only business running the game, they set the trend, but the fact is that Lyft is better for the drivers because they have slightly higher rates, let you get tips, and have been doing the % back in commission for a long time without you having to drive more and more each week.
Lyft just needs more riders, and there really trying to make that happen with the 50% rides incentive and it's getting more passengers on the road.
The biggest protest is having uber go against its competition ie. Lyft, because they are better, minus the customer base.... Darn

yeah either just quit, or join Lyft (or any other rideshare for that matter) will force Uber to raise their rates
But obviously, you see Uber has thousands and thousands of drivers in the DC area. Apparently they are content with the current rates *shrug*

Uber is much like FeePay. Both ream the provider. Both have the customers. In fact, I do wonder if Uber got some of its ideas from FeePay.

In DC riders have increased 4x-5x with this 50% off deal.... If they keep this up through the first month of school, they could have a consistent passenger base stick around Into the winter
