In August Lyft introduced its new program "Earning as soon as you tap accept" to Austin, Charlotte, Las Vegas, Madison, Milwaukee, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Nashville, Phoenix, and Raleigh. As we reported before for the first five cities it introduced this to the rates went down.
Well the same has happened for these nine cities. Which has a lot of drivers saying they are turning off the app for good and calling for a boycott of Lyft. Question is will they really stop driving? Also, will it really effect Lyft if they stop driving for we all know there are drivers who are okay with working for pennies.
Rates went from .69 per mile to .46 and time spent went from .19 per min to .21
Rates went from .60 per mile to .42 and time spent went from .15 per min to .18
Lyft XL rates went from 1.36 per mile to .69 and time spent went from .30 per min to.31
Are biggest issue is how Lyft presents this to drivers as they will make more money. When in reality they won't. They will just get screwed more.
The question is will Uber follow suit? Or will this be the downfall of Lyft?
