They’re huge fuckers. Chased my Uber driver 3 blocks Monday morning once.

When they cancel, I can’t leave feedback and neither Lyft nor Uber are responsive about unreliable drivers. Some drivers don’t have the Lyft or Uber logo on the windshield (anyone know why?) and claim they are “not cleared” to drive to the airport. It’s super frustrating and stressful. I have to budget an additional 20 to 30 minutes because I don’t know if my drivers are just going to leave me after seeing me come out of my house with my luggage

That's probably also why they don't want to go to the airport. Don't want to be caught with no decal

I think those drivers should be excluded from the requests then, right? Like why am I having to deal with this when I’m trying to make a flight. Ugh. It’s so stressed. Driver tried dropping me off at the BART station which wasted another 10 minutes. Like no, this isn’t the airport. It’s 45 minutes still to the airport and at least one train change.

like

Yeah, there’s really no way to provide feedback. Until you can do that it’s best to just leave early for the airport. It’s one of the reasons I’ve actually just started taking cabs as much as possible. Tired of shitty uber/lyft drivers

It's not required for them to have a logo

One of the reasons I always rented a car. Also, was in the bay area so made sense anyways.

No solution on the Lyft front but can you get a private driver? I worked out a deal with a private driver for less than Uber black rates to the airport. Even if it's more expensive, you can avoid the extra 20-30min and stress.

OP if it’s that big of a problem, just hire a regular and professional driver who arrives on time. You don’t have to use Uber or Lyft... Similar to OW1, I found one Uber driver who was great and offered him regular business. He picks me up and drops me off every week now and has for last two years, always on time and always pleasant.

What’s the advantage of using Uber or Lyft? I take black cars or taxis.

For me, you have to direct taxis to your destination and their cars are filthy. For getting home from airport, I hate coordinating with a black car driver if there's delays/cancellations

Got an offer for a job that will start in February of 2022. I’m planning on giving my 2 weeks soon and taking a 2-3 month break before the next position starts to just relax and take some time off. I’m young now (mid 20s) and I don’t think I’ll get a chance to take several months off between jobs again after this. Will this gap in employment be a potential issue down the road? I may be thinking too much into this, but would like some advice. TIA
