I Am Temporarily (I Hope!) De-Activated Because Lyft Support Is Stupid! Lyft Says My Background Check Is Ongoing But If They Look - I Was APPROVED TWO MONTHS AGO!

I am temporarily (I hope!) de-activated from Lyft while they say they conduct an ongoing background check, I have been driving for Lyft since May of 2019. When I try to sign on to drive on the Lyft Driver platform, it says I am not approved to drive. But when I look at their update on the background check, it says I have been approved to drive. This was two months ago! Everytime I communicate withLyft Support, they tell me that they will clear this up expeditiously. Yet, here we are - TWO MONTHS LATER waiting for their ‘help’! I would hate to see their response if I was not being given expedited help! As an aside, I haven’t been so sad not to drive lately anyhow, with all the surrealness in the world (Thank You So Much President Trump! ), ( that’s said facetiously, BTW), but I asked Lyft Support how many of their drivers have driven more than 300 trips and never received a rating less than 5 stars, like me? (Yes, I know that’s good but also lucky since 90 percent of my trips are with Uber!) That being said, I like driving for Lyft because occasionally I get some good long trips with Lyft!  Anyhow, I have sarcastically asked Lyft for some money from them for de-activating me for no reason. I have also asked to talk or text with a supervisor at Lyft Support but I have learned that will seemingly never happen! Anyway, Thank You for listening to my rambling soliloquy and I hope you all stay safe and are doing wonderful during these troubling times! With much love, yours truly, Louis. :)

    This is unrelated to the post, and I hope I have the right person, I’m going out on a limb.


    My friend and I took an uber with you (I hope) and you took us to the Plattsburgh Airport, and took him back to campus after, as I was the only one getting on the flight.


    My question is, if you remember us by the way...


    You said that you did rides to the city, and we’re leaving soon so I was hoping you still did that? I really hope I have the right person I just searched your name along with “Plattsburgh uber driver” lol.

    Lyft is known to "thin out the drivers" in places where they feel there are too many. They need to do this to keep up the demand (vs. supply) and get the drivers who are getting paid be paid. 

    They have to do this to keep up the average pay or their reputation amongst the drivers are hurt (yes, ironic)

    They use the lamest excuses to make this happen, including looking for any complains or issues, whether they are justified or not.

    It's like Trump's tax returns permanently being under audit.

        Hi Kris, nothing would surprise me with Lyft or Uber. In my time working for both I have not been able to figure out which is more incompetent!☹️But where we are in Plattsburgh, NY, there is a demand for Lyft rides but since COVID-19, there are only 3 or 4 drivers who drive sporadically. Before COVID there were 30 or 40,(you figure it out!). So, basically there is very little coverage. Most people just give up trying for a Lyft and go straight to Uber, at least that’s what they tell me! I have been reactivated on Lyft, but frankly, because they pissed me off for months and months, just not caring at all. I doubt I will drive for them very often, if, at all! Have A Great Day Kris ! And Happy Veterans Day To All!😊Louis😊

      Ha! I think we are all jsut over Uber and Lyft at this point. They both suck. This shit happens all the time and they never care or do anything about it. Sorry, hope it gets resolved for ypu but dont hold your breath.
