How do I ban or block drivers I do not want to be matched up with? I heard drivers can do the same with riders?
The Guru Take
Uber and Lyft both have algorithms to block driver-rider pairs from historical ratings.
Yes, Uber and Lyft both have logic in their platform to block certain pairs of drivers and riders from happening.
This "block" can be generated by drivers OR riders rating the each other at a low star rating. (1-star for Uber and 3-star for Lyft) This prevents riders from being matched up with certain drivers (and vice versa) on future trips.
(Note: Uber and Lyft do not fully divulge what the actual criteria are for a pair to be blocked.)
