    Waiting too long at IAD

    Is it any better with Uber there? I'm in Philly, but don't do the airport queue thing since the airport is already over an hr away from my house. If I get a ride to the airport i'll turn it off until i'm about a half hr away headed back home. Then i'll turn it back on and maybe even...

    Does this violate Lyft's or Uber's terms of service?

    I don't think it would violate any TOS, however, I'm thinking it has an ability to affect tips/rating in a negative way. It may raise the % of tips as well, though. I'd say try it for a week and see what happens! BTW, thanks for joining up - i don't check here too often because we don't have...

    Uber Starts policy to give drivers incentive to pick up those far away passengers

    As a driver in the suburbs, I'll go ahead and accept those pings through Uber and Lyft that are 15-20 minutes away. Especially if it's to start my 'shift' for the day. I drive part time and it's a great secondary income for extra money between checks. However, when you're getting 10-15 minute...

    Lyft Lyft destination mode is for Line rides only

    I hadn't realized this before, but Lyft's destination mode will only find you Line rides going in your direction. I found this out from Lyft support when asking why we can't put on destination mode when in the airport queue: This goes against what the help article on destination mode says...

    Lyft Destination mode with arrival time

    Yep, also agree. I'll use this on uber (with arrival time set) and it will let me know when it's time to head home or where ever.. The Lyft one i'm never sure if it'll really work or not since I believe it assumes I want to head there NOW.

    Uber How do I request a ride from a certain driver?

    Hey there - welcome to the forums! The easiest way to do this is to call, then meet the driver somewhere. While they are near you request the ride. Since they are the closest driver they should be the one to get your ping. Edit: BTW, this should work with either Uber or Lyft.

    Lyft How to rate driver?

    Rate them whatever you think they deserved based on the ride. The only thing I can think of (without being there along with you two on the ride) is that this driver assumes you only do short trips and they don't want to get matched with you again.
