Ok. I'll give that to you. As a person who works in a field closely related to advertising and Marketing, I can see how something like that would mislead a person.

The thing is, is that Lyft is a business, and they don't have a business without drivers. Technically the information in that ad is correct, as they are describing the best possible scenario in the most active city in order to lure drivers to drive. I mean, they need to make it sound nice to get as many quality drivers as possible.

Yeah, it is a bit misleading, but it's not technically wrong. Also, that's probably a blanket ad, that is generic for each and every city. So the algorithms aren't off, they're just generic.

Since Denver is probably a somewhat newer city to be introduced to Lyft, I would think they are desperate to get as many drivers on the streets as possible.

SO. Solutions:

  • Print off a ton of passenger referral "business cards" either design your own, or if you PM me your PAX referral code I can PM you a sheet of cards with your info on it that you can print out yourself. Print out as many cards as you can afford, then download the Official flyer and put a stack of cards at as many bars as possible around your house. Blanket your area, bars, stores, malls, Starbucks, donut shops, anything. haha I've even heard about people handing out carts outside of music venues and events, but I think that's just a waste of cards and time.

    This gets you two good things: A) You get $10-$15 per person who uses your free code, B) You expose your community to Lyft and when there's more passengers, there's more work.

  • Second, be smart about where you pick up. As I said in my previous response, think like this:

    >I mean schools and college areas in the morning, airports all day and night, neighborhoods on early Friday Nights, bar districts late Friday nights, be in the city during rush hour(more traffic, longer fares), and suburbs and neighborhoods in the morning.

  • Third, if you need to run an errand to the other side of the city and you don't have a time limit you need to get it done by? Just turn on the app and pick up people on the way there. I live in LA and I drive to and from Orange County and San Diego a few times a month, and I just turn on the app and I make up to $200 by the time I make it to and from.

  • Fourth! Tips. Try to maximize tips by being as cool as possible. Personally, I work on movie sets so I take snacks and stuff from Craft Services and stuff my glove compartment with snacks, gum, mints, mini-water bottles, aspirin, etc. 99cent store is another really good place to buy snacks. I bought a car converter so PAX's can charge their phones and laptops or whatever. So I do make quite a bit extra in tips for having a snack bar and complete charging station. I also have a few generic Spotify playlists saved depending on what kind of PAX I'm driving, but usually I just play movie scores since I'm in the Burbank area. I also have a small trash can in the back(with a 5lb disk weight so it doesn't get knocked over) to keep things clean.

    Point is, it's a business, yes they mislead, be creative and learn to work the system, and nothing in life is truly that easy, yes you will have to work for it.

I keep Starburst and mints in my car, and a lot of people seem to be really delighted by the Starburst. I do go through a lot of them, but I am also delighted by Starburst and will pop a few throughout the day, so it's possible I'm the one who's the problem.

The phone charger is definitely a popular amenity; I've had many pax express gratitude for having one available. I got one from Amazon that has interchangeable ends to do Android or iPhone.

I got an air freshener after a few smelly pax got in my car. I didn't want the next pax to think I was the smelly one. I got this one: and got tons of compliments on the scent. I was a bit worried because I thought it was too strong, but people seemed to really love it.

For music, I usually just do classical or jazz. A few times I've done the Beatles or the Beach Boys, and people seem to like those a lot.

I always confirm with Line pax that they've chosen Line and what that means. I don't want them getting angry at me for following Line rules.

One sore spot with me is parents who will try to bring their children without a proper seat. I'm not getting a ticket or possibly having a dead child on my conscience just to make a few dollars on a Lyft ride. I keep a booster seat in my trunk that works for toddlers and up - if they have an infant without a seat, no way are they getting in my car. It was $20 and I keep in bungied to the side so it's not in the way if people have luggage. I've used it enough that it's paid for itself. I got frustrated with driving to people and then having to turn them down when they had a kid and no seat. I feel like providing the seat is a kinder way to educate them that they are supposed to be providing one because rideshare doesn't have the same carseat exemption taxis do, at least not in my state.

I'll use 1 yankee candle air freshener. those are always good.


i like spraying this every few hours on the back seat :

despite the interesting name...its actually a great smell. it's not too bold (like creepy old man smell), and its not too citrus-y. i always get good reviews on the scent.

the hardest part is knowing that soon, you wont be able to smell your scents, so just be aware that less is best.

I'm passing on this NYE, as well. I'd much rather be with my friends that night.

It's a little late to recommend vomit bags, but CareBags are among the best: they have a draw string to close and keep the stench out and an absorption pad built in.

Also, if you're taking care of drunks- while it might not get you any additional tips- water and something for them to munch might help them stay somewhat coherent.

u/egeek84 · 2 pointsr/Lyft

i use this one with my iphone 6 plus and its perfect (even works with my bulky otterbox defender on it)

With that said tho, does anyone actually drive without a mount? God I can't even imagine driving while holding my phone in one hand and the other on my steering wheel and taking requests/navigating gps that way lol.

u/buckus69 · 1 pointr/Lyft

Get a better charger. As others have noted, those cheapos only put out 1-2 amps, and it's split among the ports. A good 2.4amp charger will be less than $20.

Something like this will put out 3.0 amps on each port, easily keeping most mobile devices charged even while running and even when using both ports.

The Little Green Machine/Bissell Spot Cleaner or anything of the like is worth every single penny! My dad has the Little Green and I subsequently bought the Bissell version. I haven't used it too much in my car but it got puppy urine stains out of my white carpet (previous owner installed, worst floors in my house) like it never happened. Wow, I should get sponsored by these guys.


Here is the one I got

Wait for it to go on sale, I'm sure it does periodically. Anything on amazon you can track prices on btw. Free site.

u/Syphon0928 · 6 pointsr/Lyft

I've used one of these for years and it's worked great. It's simple, doesn't take up much space, I don't need to fumble around clipping it like a traditional mount.

Edit: typo

u/Sad_Ballsack · 1 pointr/Lyft

I absolutely love the Kenu Airframe. It clips into an airvent and stays put. I've had mine for about a year and it still works just as well as the first day I got it. Plus, at $25, it's relatively inexpensive in comparison with some of the other mount choices.

My Lyft car has two accessory outlets which I have double USB 3.0 chargers ( - I keep USB C, micro USB and Apple Lightning cables in the car. One of the double chargers I use for my own electronics, the other is used for charging PAX's phones or tablets. Works great, and has more than paid for itself in extra tips, especially since it will quick charge most phones.

u/lilliillil · 1 pointr/Lyft

i got 30 for around $12 from amazon. they are blue and i have been told they are like the ones they have in hospital.

so far none of my Uber passengers used one but one of my friend passengers did and it was fortunatei had it because there was very littlewarning and it would have been a mess.

Plasti Dip

Its that easy

Like slapping a coat of paint on an old motorcycle!

u/DrPsyc · 2 pointsr/Lyft


Make sure that when recording you are in compliance with all laws. and keep the footage for forever if you can. 6 months down the road a pax can say you did something and without the vid is word vs word.

iOttie Easy One Touch 2

I've got this one and really like it. It mount it on my window but it does have an adhesive base for mounting on the dash.

Not sure how wide the Note 4 is but this mount is at least half again as wide as my EVO.

u/MattRain101 · 2 pointsr/Lyft

I run a Falcon Zero F360, but use their provided USB plugin. I don't notice the camera or plugin at all. Ran the wire through my roofliner, side column and inside the dash, until I got to the USB port (only 6-8 inches of cord showing at the bottom and top)

(comes with a 3 USB plug in, so you dont loose a port.)

Vantrue N2 Pro Uber Dual Dash Cam...

Current one that I currently run. Expensive but coveted all the bases plus you can add gps.

u/Sonadel · 3 pointsr/Lyft

It’s on newegg too, Amazon is just more accessible on my phone. This is the one I have. Only criticism is that the ball bering that lets you adjust the angle loosens over time. There are fixes online though. Here’s what I use:

I should have mentioned this: if you are thinking of trying to fit a bike in your car. Carry two adjustable wrenches. Reason is in case they are riding without quick release. Also, put the chain in a plastic bag so the grease doesn't get everywhere. If they can take off/on the wheels the better but if they can't, you may need to put the wheels on/off. Quick tutorial for freewheel. Quick tutorial for fixed, I don't particularly like this video since the guy didn't have a horizontal dropout but it is the closest I could find. You could also get a rear bike rack for your car in my experience the Saris is pretty reliable but it is fairly expensive this one is $80. They are some that are cheaper but I have had one bad experience with a cheap bike rack and since you are hauling people it would probably not be a good idea if the bike rack were to fail. I hope this helps.
