Can you believe that Lyft just dropped the mileage and per minute rates and titled the e-mail, "Higher pay in Washington, DC" because they added .40 to the base fare....

Lower rates earn more money!

But base rate went from 75 cents to 1.15. Seems like slightly more money for short rides. Just compared pricing with.my lyft pass mine said total fare was 6.75 but he was chared $3 something. Is lyft subsidizing rides with investor.money too?

This is the chart I got in email. Lyft is on it's last legs. It's playing with pennies.

Lyft should raise rates and try to differentiate themselves from Uber. Instead they're UberLite in pink. Tips are nice but aren't that major.

Also I saw this:
Note: We also adjusted some language in our commission schedule. View it in the Driver Portal.

When I clicked the link it didn't give any update. I thought I saw on another board they stopped giving Line cancel fees and were going to take their commission on regular ride cancel fees just like Uber.

It didn't seem like we were getting 'Higher Pay in Washington DC' so they sent this when asked. Sounds like the explanation for Pool. More demand with price CUTS so you will make more. I want to make more driving less, less stress on me and my car, not driving more often for less pay.

Alternative Facts.
That's how lowering rates means higher earnings for our partners LOL
Lyft is getting to be a complete joke.
If they did this and at least told you if something was a prime time ride, I wouldn't even be that mad.
The fact that they scam you with the 'well, the ride wasn't a prime time ride' BS is making me want to drive less and less for them.

Please tell me you replied and told them to shove that statement where the sun doesn't shine.
