I remember when I started driving for Lyft 2 years ago nearly everyone were saying how much better Lyft was than Uber.

Nowadays, you can't pay a driver to say this. Almost all the posts I've seen recently have turned sour over Lyft's shady practices.

I was willing to defend Lyft, but my final straw was when they started making pdb almost impossible to reach. Heck, it is impossible now for the part timer.

The most egregious trick now Lyft employs is this. At LAX, the driver app will show it pt dark pink. However when requests come in there is no pt applied. So I checked the pax app and sure enough, no pt on pax side. Switch back to driver app, zone is deep pink. That's some shady stuff right there.

Lyft lies. Bigly. #fakelyft

Uber's been doing those false surge zones for years...Lyft is just catching up with the lies.

Lyft drivers are too nice. Start giving out 1 star. Everyone who were kicked out of Uber gets ride too easily with lyft. They say they love lyft and hate Uber but their behavior and attitude is still the same. When they start missing rides , lyft will come to its senses.
Spam the App Store, post 1 star reviews. Lyft operates same way like Uber but are way more controlling, annoying and threatening than Uber.

Sorry but this shouldn't really surprise anyone with a little common sense. Lyft and Uber are both going to pull the exact same b*s every chance they get. Fake pt, bs pdb, cancelling trips and giving it to a closer driver (and blaming the pax), upfront pricing, and of course their latest scam - "higher chance of rides" alerts that's supposedly "personalized" for each driver.. They're app s*#ks, and they'll constantly nag you about not accepting every single ride request even when that request will cost you more money than you'll make. Uber gets the most bad pr in the media but Lyft is no better, and in many ways much worse than Uber.

I HATE Lyft with a passion the likes of which we've never seen before! (Very little PT, patronizing, passive aggressive Co. with their warnings on every missed request, bail-outs, constant passenger cancellations, game-playing with PT surge-map, 90% acceptance rate requirement, ride requests 20 min. away, treat drivers like children, $2,500 ins. deductible shall I continue?)

Uber on!
