especially when Uber is not on surge, the Lyft bonus is always mysteriously active. I just hope Lyft can keep it this way, and not to cut anything
I wish I can give you my streak bonus....lyft is too good for me so I let the pro work for them. The new heat map makes me vomit, glad it works for some drivers.

Of course it's bad when Uber is surging 3x. But, why not take a 5$ bonus when there's only base rate available. Lyft is occasionally useful
Are you serious? You can't be. Ok, let me backup. Which bonus program are you referring to? Because, it can't be the new heat maps.

I had 4 rides today from McCormick area. Heat map added from 6 to 8 bucks on all rides. Lyft lost on all rides from 0.66 to 3.8 bucks. All rides were going 2-3 miles. Heat map is good for short rides.
Exactly, this afternoon I made $90 in 2 hrs in Hyde park, where Uber is only surging 1.2-1.3x

Hey Whyaskwhy? have you had any luck getting out of the Lyft heat map program? I hate it so much!
Nooooo, but I just emailed them at 8:40pm because I gave my white male friend whom is a little older than I, that ride beta email address and he emailed them last night and they responded back to him immediately. Whereas I've been emailing them since May 21st and they've never responded to me so I just asked them whats the issue with getting back to me? And, as usual I'm still waiting.

Yes I am, I mean exactly the new heat map
Thank you!! Did you drive for them last night for that 5 bonus?

Also, my friend in Nashville said they originally told him the beta testing would be for 3 weeks and tomorrow makes week number 9. A guy in Seattle said he's been in the test for 4 months.

Working the new heat map is like playing russian roulette. I hate when they think we are stupid..... but I guess there are many ...... Lets see where the rideshare goes, uber is getting close to that too ( they switch to consecutive trips), thanks but no thanks.
I'm just trying to finish school. I have a year and a half left and Lyft was perfect until they lowered the pay for .90 per mile to .75 then they still charge the passenger 1.00 per mile. And, now no more 80/20. They take whatever, plus this heat map crap. I'd rather take out more loans and live off of that than to be exploited because at this point that's what it feels like. I'm being used and abused.

I had actually started to contact NBC 5. But, I reached out to the reporter that use to work there and now drives for Lyft and does a podcast. Anthony Ponce. But, I'm down for whatever action. Ohhhh, are you aware that Lyft is buying a divvy type bike company in NYC. I'm sure they're using our PT bonuses for that. Lol!!! It's not funny though.

No, last night I drove Uber because only fools would ignore 3.0x and go for $5. I do Lyft today because Uber was on 1.3x. Up till now I make $140 from 2 hr 40 min."

I did about 20 of the bonus rides this week and lyft lost on all of them. The first week of the heat map worked like magic! Just gotta know when to push the button.
