    On Lyft, if you give a driver a bad rating they won't match you up with that driver again. I know this is the opposite of what you asked but still good to know. At least you won't get the same bad driver twice in a row!

      If you give a driver a bad rating, your quest for a different driver can also cause someone to lose their job and possibly their ability to support their family.  Is choosing a specific driver really worth that?  I've had people make false accusations against me, the last time which cost me almost a weeks earnings.  ($1k)  The accusation:  I was driving drunk. (I quit drinking 38 years ago, and have ZERO tickets or accidents in over 40 years of driving) 

      FWIW, to "un match" drivers you generally need to rate them ONE STAR, so your rating is VERY substantial and will probably follow your driver long term.  (up to a year)

    This is a fantastic idea.  Keeping a list of favorites?  I'd like that very much.
