I've been driving for Lyft part-time for the last six weeks. Today was the first time that I waited for a ride at the O'Hare staging lot. I waited for about 50 minutes when I was pinged to pick up a rider. I accepted the ride but before I could pull out of the lot, she canceled. I pulled back into a parking spot and was immediately pinged by her again. This time, I accepted and waited before pulling out. Within 5 seconds, rider canceled again. Pinged again by same rider, accepted and waited about 15 seconds without a cancellation, so I proceeded out of the lot and got about 500 yards down the street when rider canceled again. Rider texted and said my car wasn't big enough (I drive a VW Tiguan).

When I returned to the lot, I started talking to the guy next to me. He said same rider pinged him and then canceled right away. He was driving a Yukon! I also found out that since I left the lot, I lost my spot in line and would now be waiting another hour or so for a ride. I left and went back to the city.

Any similar experiences out there? Is this a coordinated action on the part of UBER to drive Lyft drivers away from doing airport pickups. It's certainly not like they haven't done anything similar in the past. In any event, I really don't see myself sitting in that lot for an hour again to take the chance that the ride cancels on me on my way to pick them up.
