How is this profitable driving for base rates? I honestly can't figure it out.
I. So with $0.53/mile deduction you net nada.

2. $2.25 minimum fare. $5 cancel fee. It's twice as profitable to Shuffle (cancel) rather than drive.

If you are trying to figure out how it's profitable, you can't, because it's not. Lyft is hoping that it takes the majority of drivers a long time to realize it's not profitable. In the meantime they will take advantage of drivers mercilessly for their own benefit.

Ironic, they added the ability to see rates for other cities through the dashboard
