Too bad they get what they pay for
I just did my first Lyft ride-as-rider, and I think I met the "problem":Fuber treat ur driver's Five Star then in return Driver's
treat the Riders's five star endless hiring and culling will
not solve the issue ! So U could become a INN & OUTT
Don't forget the cracked, yellowing deeds to houses the Israelis are never going to give backI just did my first Lyft ride-as-rider, and I think I met the "problem":
Retired but by no means senior-citizeny guy, very respectable and dignified upper-middle class WASP, 4.9 rating, immaculate 2012 Hyundai Tucson all optioned up with black leather, smooth as butter ride,looks like he walked straight out of some advertisement for golf clubs....mostly drives X and Pool, says I'm his first Lyft rider in forever
pulls maybe 500ish a week, average ride far below $10....no metals. No guarantees. Hardly any surge.
Yeah admittedly me in my bimmer powerdrivering Lyft blaring Metallica at night with the party crowd up and down PCH is probably pretty disruptive too, but I average $13-20 per ride, depending on the week... And Lyft costs more. And I don't touch Line/Pool.
But if THAT guy can be taken by a couple at the same price as getting them two on a bus, well dang, no wonder all the struggling unemployed fathers from Eastern Europe and the Middle East that I meet at LAX and such, in their old beater Priuses, with their deep accents, nervous voices, and tired faces, are getting shafted by the pax. You can't win against this guy with a foreign name and culture, an accent, and an older cheaper vehicle....heck, I'm sure HIS rowdy drunks sober up and sit up straight.
Tried to nudge the guy into trying to get his car into select, or upgrade to a Select vehicle... If he's happily setting the expectation bar for the LOWEST cut-rate service, well, dang, we all Uber-screwed here....
