It could be better
Hello I’m a Lyft driver and I have a lot of problems with the app, to many hacking situations in this last year , the email the support it doesn’t work or it doesn’t recive the emails when raiting something is happening in my app, I thing is depens of areas where we are working, because I have friends every where in the country in diferents estates, and their app is working great not with this kind of situation I have now. I thing there’s a big manipulation in some areas of the Florida states, like monopolies like the limó companies also I know some people in Miami area they make more then 300 dollars a day with a simple car like my. That’s the reason I couldn’t contact with the real people in the office of Lyft in South Florida. I talking with peoples they have less rides of the calcification “I have almost 6500rides I’m 5 stars driver” but they make more money of me and their app work with not problems. In the South Florida offices is always the same they telling you o yes we have a lot of problems with the app and blabkablabla , I was in the office putting the complaining and my app for 3 days continue work great after 3 days the app come back to the same situation, no rides for prolonged time more then 2 hours, you have to tour off the app and the phone and restarted again like more then 10 times a day, is really sick, sad and ensani.
I like that as a driver, we have the option of having more rides queue up while we drive but I’ve been having a bit of an issue with the app queuing me with long distance (37-47min) trips without letting me know before accepting. I don’t know how long the trip will be until I swipe to pick up passenger. If I could know beforehand I could possibly stop for gas or a restroom break if needed. It’s just a inconvenience.
Also the app update is very inconvenient when it blocks you from touching the screen while driving. I’ve tried to go offline in the middle of a ride so that I don’t get queued with another ride and it blocks me from doing anything onscreen until I stop. Sometimes I am on the highway and I can’t stop.
I understand this may be due to safety reasons so that drivers don’t text and drive but I feel it is better to go offline than to get auto-queued with more rides and having to cancel on them afterwards. The same goes for not being able to click on the passenger’s info while driving. There was a confusion between me and a passenger about which address to go to. I could not tap on his info to see the destination address because the screen was blocked! Very frustrating
Lyft is a ripoff for drivers
I’ve been doing Uber and Lyft in Kansas City for about a month now and I have to say I am quite appalled at how manipulative Lyft is with their drivers. They talk big numbers and bonuses and guarantee $500 a week, advertise big bonuses for new drivers, and make it seem great. But then you drive 15 minutes to pick someone up and they don’t show up and I make $0 for it. Lyft says “it’s because you didn’t arrive within 5 minutes of the scheduled pickup.” Lyft doesn't care to ask if I couldn’t find the entrance because the customer’s phone number wasn’t in service. They give you rides that take you all over the place, making it 10x more difficult to reach your 100 rides, they pay you about $3 for a mile and a half ride that took 8 minutes (and that includes the extra 55¢ for gas), and they put up bonus zones with no intention of leaving them there long enough for drivers to show up. Why even have bonus zones when they disappear in 30 seconds? Because they are trying to lure drivers with zero intention of actually making sure they get the bonus.
Lyft develops an app and leaves the drivers to take on all the wear and tear, time loss, gas money, and doesn’t even care to compensate them properly. I can assure you once I hit my 100 rides, I will never drive for Lyft again unless I find myself in a $10+ bonus zone or they decide to increase fares or quit taking such a high cut of the measly ones currently in place.
