Uber gets serious competition: Lyft expands service outside of the United States

America’s transportation company Lyft yesterday launched its service in Toronto, which is the first case of expanding this Uber competition outside the United States.

Lyft is being promoted as a more socially fairer version of the much larger and more popular Uber, which is being investigated by governments around the world for suspicion of concealing massive hacking of users data last year.

Hackers then stole 57 million names, email addresses and cell phone numbers from the database, including 600,000 drivers, and Uber tried to hide the data leak.

“This is a monumental day for Lyft. Passengers want a second option and drivers know that Lyft is built on caring for their driving community and they want that experience, “said Toronto general manager, Tim Haughton.

Haughton added that more than 50,000 people in the largest Canadian city dropped the Lyft application, but refused to specify how many drivers applied, pointing out only that there were more than 100.

Uber, on the other hand, has 32,000 drivers in Toronto who did at least four rides last month. It is obvious that Lyft has a long way to go if he wants to reach this pioneer of cargo services through mobile applications as well as taxi services.

Nevertheless, Lyft has had an impressive growth of business this time – as TechCrunch reports, doubling the number of driving and last 100 million rides in just three months, while the first 100 million rides were four years. Likewise, it currently offers service to as many as 95% of the US population, as opposed to 76% a year ago.

With that in mind, it is difficult for Lyft to think of spreading to Toronto. Perhaps their service for which year becomes available to us.

I have a question and a tip for this:
So now uber wants you to pay them for the money they actually owe you.

How much does it cost to drive from point A to B, check the official website https://www.uber.com/fare-estimate

As I said, the prices are cheaper than a taxi service.
At a time when the number of users exceeds the number of partners driver, the price may rise, it is called “surge pricing”. So users at any time of the day or night can order a vehicle. In case of increase in prices will be promptly notified. Then you can order a regular taxi ride, my recommendation.

Picking up in da hood

I have a question and a tip for this:
I never drive in Detroit but I was burning money in the casino and figured I'd pick up there when I was leaving. Got a young man who was an employee, no biggie good kid picked him up and did a drop off. Soon as I drop him off I get a request on Monica off of Livernois and I96. So I turn on the street and literally every house was abandoned but maybe like 2. No Street lights, waste land. As soon as I pulled in the street I cancelled.

Waze is annoying

I have a question and a tip for this:
…..I enjoy using Waze and all, always use the better and longer route butttt, I always see myself switching back to the Uber map when I’m arriving to a pax or close to dropping a pax. Waze sucks when it comes to exact locations or addresses, can’t even tell you guys how many times they’ve tried sending me in the back of the buildings or to side streets lol.

Insurance for Uber and Lyft in Honolulu

I have a question and a tip for this:
Having a hard time getting insured by any car insurance company here in Honolulu.

I have two minor infractions in the last three years and State Farm (who normally insures people who drive for Uber and Lyft) said I am “ineligible” to be insured by them.

Anyone else going through the same problem?

Any other car insurance companies that I can try to go through?

is Tesla worth it?

I have a question and a tip for this:
Is it one of the better "luxury" sedans one can get out there? I think "luxury" in Uber's eyes should include leather seats, etc.

I saw a Tesla for auction, not sure how much starting bid is but it was low mileage but does not have a battery. Is the battery the main cost of the Tesla? Is it actually electric and doesn't need gasoline? If this is fact, then I think the rideshare type of jobs might make a lot more business sense if one does not use a gas guzzler and be spending money on gas,…
