What Drivers Say: (From Indeed)
As long as no one complains on you, the driver, all Rosy Colors. Having said that, youbhave tonestch out for the Bad Apples that complain and even invent things about you and their trip with you. I had four different instances, with two of them affecting me, because Lyft took the passenger side.
Pros: Schedule Flexibility, amd Daily Pay
Cons: Wear on Car; Resentful People
Driving for Lyft is pretty neat. You get to drive whenever you want to, stop whenever you want to, you have the ability to receive bonuses, and you’re able to rent a car from them if you don’t want to use your own.
Pros: Flexible hours
Cons: More wear and tear on your car.
