Have you seen in increase in fares? If so, why is that? Are your wait times in Lyft going up?

This article on Rideguru may explain it all.

    It's a scam, the other day I did a ride on Lyft where I was paid a 10 dollar bonus from LAX to downtown Los Angeles at 11pm, it's a 17 mile ride and took less than half an hour, I got paid a total of $25 and the pax was charged over $60, so they're charging the pax prine time but paying the driver a lousy $10 bonus, it would have been much worse in rush hour traffic.

    Uber and Lyft have stolen more and more from their rideshare drivers to fund the expansion of their failing business model, but the stream of drivers is starting to thin and resistance is forming because they've pushed this beyond tolerable levels.  

    As their options become more limited in how much they can take from drivers, they've moved to fleecing riders to fund their machine, specifically using things like PPZ and flat surges to charge riders more, while paying drivers less.  

    My mornings once consisted of non stop runs to the airport, but recently I've had a very large increase in the number of passengers who just want to go as far as the local lightrail station for a train ride to the airport instead.  Why the change?  Uber and Lyft prices have grown way too expensive, especially for PPZ and surged rides.

      I agree 100%. Who's fault is that anyway? U/L 

      Rideshare should have never been this cheap.

      Now they figured out that they sucked all the blood out of the driver by rate cuts, it's time to fleece the passenger. Look at those examples in my article, atrocity!
