Ratings and Reviews
There needs to be a Lyft driver app for iPad
Their competition offers a driver app for the iPad. The large screen is a huge safety improvement. There are some nice mounts available to use the otherwise useless cd slot to mount an iPad as a control center in the car.
While we are the subject of rating the app, the latest version works poorly with Bluetooth, and the volume levels out of the iPhone speakers are unpredictable. Some times you can hear them, other times barely. It’s not the volume control on the phone that is down, it’s in the app.
I’m glad that they integrated Google maps right into the app, unfortunately the map often sends me to the alley behind buildings rather than the street address, which reads right.
At the end of the day when I log out the app asks me to rate it, but there is no space to comment on what went wrong, just a star rating.
Overall, the developers need to get to work and made major improvements. Thus my 3 star rating, which would get me fired if my customers all thought as badly about my service as I do about this app.
The app is lacking in letting us know where people are going before we pick them up unless you’re at platinum level, which is silly. Because of this, I actually had to risk fines by taking someone to LAX before my permit has come in the mail (which, by the way, it’s been weeks). I didn’t know they were going to LAX before they got in my car, and the idea of kicking them out once they already had their luggage in my trunk felt unthinkable. The Shell has rewards still haven’t kicked in and I was supposed to have received that almost three weeks ago. On top of this, the app can be more user friendly by letting us see pick up and drop off addresses all the time. I can’t drive safely and be clicking back between Waze, passenger info, etc.
On the plus side, I appreciate the bonuses and the streak challenges. I like the layout of the dashboard, and I love seeing all of my earnings, tips, and bonuses laid out.
Destroy your car to make Money for Lyft!
The other reviews regarding driver compensation is completely accurate. You’ll put hundreds of miles on your car for a few bucks, which you will have to pay back into your car for future repairs. I drove over 400 miles in a day and made just over $100. Do some rough math and you’ll find out quickly it’s not worth the miles and damage placed on your car. The riders damage your car and leave smells in the seats. I have a brand new car from the factory, no one had even test drove the car before me. Now I’m at the car wash having the seats professionally shampooed ($50) and the Odor is still present. In the end I made a $100 from Lyft, paid $30 in gas and $50 to try and remove the odor from my seats, that leaves me with $30 profit for 13 hours of work.
I care a lot about my car as I’m sure other people do who buy a new car, protect your car don’t let Lyft ruin your investment.
