    Bright lights, lamps, cars with themes, tablets, snacks, etc. If someone wants to tip they will regardless of all the crap drivers put in their car. We get request if we are the closest driver, riders cant request specific drivers how is any of this going to help? If any driver out there actually gets more tips because of all these light up logos please share your story. All we are doing is advertising for the companies that dont care about their drivers, pays crappy wages, and does nothing to help out drivers unless we drive more, accept every crappy ride that pings our car. The only positive thing is the flexibiIity we have in making our own hours. Just dont understand the logic in this.

    Tip?  No. But I sort of want it. 

    It’s like how I purchased my Ford in the highest trim just so I can get the soft LED glow on the floorboard.  Also the FORD metal lettering on the hood and also on the mud flaps. 

    Do you choose Uber or Lyft? Or do you get both. Having both would look ghetto

      You can choose either or or both. No way would I put out 30.00 for this. I wouldnt use it if they were giving it away for free. Lol Maybe if i wantef to advertise my own company but not U/L.

    Where are you guys finding these very driver specific items. That’s hilarious. I mean, so it’s so specific. O let people who’ll buy these are Uber/Lyft drivers. What else are there in this store.

      I found this on FB but go on Amazon there is a bunch of crap. I dont get it. I do not want to advertise that I am driving for any company for a few reasons.

    We are not a snack box on wheels ,rideshare apps have  already hypnotized people not to tip and they did a great job of finding all the tightwads that never or hardly ever used a traditional Taxicab.

    Hell’s yeah! Come on people love shiny things if not conscious, subconsciously. More tips for sure. Who can resist the pretty lights. Bette mood=more tip money.

    Only if it said, “Please tip.”

    Then again, you can get your car keyed if you did something like that.

    If anything you'd lose tip on this. Is that how they are marketing this thing? For a positive ROI.

      I agree. When we all pay 200.00 per month to sign up for TRYP (see thread on here if not sure what I am talking about) we can add their name. Lol These things are just getting rediculous.  I dont put signs up unless at airport or going to pick up in a  real busy area. The app gives our make & model, time of arrival and license plate. If I am pulling up and only car there that matches their app shouldn't be hard to figure out its me. I really rather not advertise for a few reasons. I really dont want lights all over my car advertising for Uber and Lyft:)
