Charge passengers/customers much more for waiting time per minute, I truly believe it would cut down on customers being inconsiderate of the drivers time.

I applied Friday for the express drive program (rent a car from through lyft), and paid my $250 deposit on Saturday, and was approved and made my reservation for pick up with Hertz today. It just depends of whether or not there's something in your background that holds them up.

According to Lyft today you have a territory. But you can work anywhere in your state. If you leave your state you have to tell them and possibly change insurance to the new state for regulations in that state.

Too many here trying to get that referral pay. Some markets pay a decent bonus for referral, but most pay very little. In my market it is $10. Why would I want to put more drivers on the road when there is not enough business to keep me busy now? And from what info I have picked up, I don't trust them to actually pay the so called "bonus". $10, wow, hope I can get my new Gulfstream jet now with that windfall.

Actually, if you're driving a vehicle that seats more than 4 safely (meaning there are seatbelts available for each rider) and get a regular Lyft request but there are more than 4 passengers, you can take the ride and request an adjustment when the ride is completed. Just select the ride in the ride history, then the help option, then issue with the ride or fare, then explain that it needs to be adjusted to XL. Make sure you are signed up as an XL driver AND you take note of and mention the actual number of passengers in your request. I never had anyone try to dispute it, but a dashcam in your vehicle (which, by now, most drivers probably have) or even cameras at the pickup or dropoff locations will provide evidence if they ever do. I usually let the passengers know the fare will be adjusted, except once when one of the passengers thought he was fooling me by telling it was an XL request (he obviously thought I couldn't check once I accepted the ride) and I wanted the satisfaction of him finding out about the adjustment later. If there are more riders than seatbelts, tell them to request another Lyft - you can be ticketed at the commercial driver rate if you're caught with too many passengers.
