Philadelphia and NJ residents can purchase a beach pass from Lyft. Flat rate to NJ Shore.  What do riders think? Is it worth it? Would you take a Lyft to the shore for 110.00? 220.00 round trip?

    Seems like a decent deal actually. RideGuru estimates more than that using normal rates, and that's assuming no surge.

      That was my thoughts also but then I found this article. I've been hearing more and more from riders that drivers are cancelling on them at the last minute. Lets face it not every ride puts you in a great spot. I feel sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. One guy I picked up last night missed his flight because 2 drivers cancelled on him. Did exactly what these drivers did in the the story below. If it's 3/4am most likely if its a 45+ min long trip someone is headed to Airport. If you accept a riders request call & ask where they are going. I am sure they much rather have you cancel immediately then wait for you to drive 15 min get within a block from them & cancel. They are missing flights when 2/3 drivers do this. Drivers wonder why Uber & Lyft do some of the things they do. It's the drivers that cause it with crap like this. You dont want a long trip dont accept it. You are screwing your passengers.

      Passengers if you get a decent driver who takes you on a long trip you may want to tip a few $ for those dead miles back especially if driver is going to be stuck in traffic losing money or cant pick up in the city they take you too. PA & NJ drivers take you to NYC but cant pick anyone up there. Getting out alive and your car intact is a miracle. Those TLC drivers are rude and drive like a bunch of morons (sorry to the few that may not). There are other cities that you may not be able to pick up in but I am not sure of which ones. 

      Tip to Riders

      If you are going on a long trip 45 min + call or text your driver as soon as they accept. Tell them where you are going so if they want to cancel you are not sitting there waiting 15/20  min and then they cancel and possibly same thing with following driver. Again if your driver takes you on these long trips, car is clean, driver in nice, respectful, and safe please consider tipping for those dead miles they may and probably will incur. Maybe more drivers will start taking the longer trips then. Until they do I'll be out there making money on all the trips drivers cancel.

        FWIW - Most of my recent Lyft "cancellations" are cancelled by Lyft and sent to other drivers because there's another driver that's closer, etc.
