Lyft new ride quotas 115/35 peak rides!
Any idea if this change is good for Uber eats as well?
Hold on Uber already took away the transparency with Uber Eats breakdown i am sure it’s coming to Uber passenger breakdown soon too. Hey

That’s not even counting the Lyft’s 25% commision either!
That not counting the 25% commision that lyft takes either!

No Lyft doesn’t pay anything towards the rental unless you hit the quota which is so high now you need to work 70 hours or more a week to hit it. If you don’t hit it you’re pretty much losing money
Lyft is definitely worse than Ubers now! Peak rides are a scam it’s nothig more than Lyfts way to control independent contractors like employees. More lawsuits in California coming up
In Las Vegas as an example city the opportunity is only gone down hill. Out the door with tax it’s $261 a week. In June of 2018 Lyft decided to raise the quota to 115 rides a week from 70 rides plus 35 of those 115 need to be done on Lyft selected times which are heavily out weighed on the weekends.
Their way of controlling drivers “independent contractors” for Lyfts benefit. They will always tell the drivers peak ride times are not mandatory but any common sense driver realizes if you want to make more than minimum wage after expenses you need those bonuses. So profitability wise it is mandatory!
The rental program only makes sense if you are willing to work 60 to 70 hours a week on lyfts schedule. Most drivers will only average just shy of 2 rides per hour. So the math is easy 115 rides divided by 2 = 57.5 hours a week to get $180 of the $262 rental cost coveted. Then add gas cost in my case at these gas prices about $200/$225 a week.
The first week this 115/35 ride quota came out I was logged in 72 hours mostly chasing these 35 “peak rides” some hours not getting any peak rides leaving the house in early hours away from my kids. Very frustrating!
So if your considering the rental rewards express drive program keep this in mind. There’s no way to be profitable with this on a part time basis and understand 50 to 60 hours a week in Las Vegas at least.
The he bottom line opinion Lyft does not care about the drivers only profits. Greed has set in.
