Most drivers drive for BOTH platforms. Yep! They do! Why? Because it's extremely easy to have both apps running, accept the next ride you get from whichever platform it comes from, and turn the other app off while you're giving that ride so as to avoid having to decline trips in the other platform. The more Lyft and Uber drop the amount they pay driver, the more drivers are having to do this just to get enough rides to make it viable.
So if you're an UberX driver, consider signing up with Lyft. They offer a sign up bonus sometimes, if you can find it. Don't ask for it retroactively, however, they won't honor that.
The good news for Lyft drivers is Uber does ofter a sign up bonus. Gasp! How corporately EVIL of them! (that was sarcasm, in case you didn't catch it.) Even better news is, right now, it's a BIG one.
Right now, if you drive for Lyft, Sidecar or any other rideshare company, you get $1000 when you sign up with Uber and complete ONE trip.
Yeah. I told you it was a good one.
So, come on. Let go of all the crap talk, you don't HAVE to be one of the cool kids, right? While all your Lyft buddies are crap talking Uber, you will be out shopping! Or on vacation. Or paying those bills you desperately need to pay.
Here's how to get the $1000. Go to this link:
Sign up and do ONE drive and the $1000 is yours.
