Many drivers in my locality run multiple apps at once. You'll need to keep Uber on in the foreground, otherwise it'll drop offline and you won't receive pings. Lyft will operate in the background and pop up to the foreground when a ping from a Lyft rider comes in (at least on Android. I'm not sure about iOS). If you get a ping on one app, turn off the other, and then turn both back on when you're done with your trip.
