LYFT’S NEW “COMPETITIVE STRATEGY UPDATE” or (DRIVERS TO PAY FOR LYFT’S MARKETING)
A big focus for LYFT this year is (FOLLOWING UBER’S BAD EXAMPLES) growing ridership in the East Bay, which is more challenging when the competition lowers prices there. We’ve tried keeping our higher SF rates across the region ( LYFT DOESNT HAVE UBER MARKET EXPOSURE) and found that affordability (CHEAPNESS) is still the first consideration in getting people to take Lyft (LYFT ONLY CARES ABOUT RIDERS).
To protect your (THEY MEAN LYFT’S) earnings long-term, we’ll introduce more competitive (UNSUSTAINABLE) prices beginning next week for rides that start in East Bay.
We’ll continue providing you with the best earnings opportunities of any platform (according to LYFT), through better pricing (ONLY A FEW PENNIES MORE THAN UBER), tips, and Power Driver Bonuses.
Spring Pricing Effective Tuesday, April 26
Cost Per Minute $0.15
Cost Per Mile $0.89
Base Fare $1.50
Min. Driver Pay $5.00
Trust & Safety $1.55
We are working hard to continue the momentum as the platform people prefer to use (meaning CHEAP RIDERS). In the last year, driver earnings have increased 13% because of this work and your great service. (WHO DOES THEIR MATH???) ( IS THIS A GREAT WAY TO REWARD YOUR GREAT SERVICE???)
TECH PEOPLE WHO MAKE 6 FIGURE SALARIES AND WORK IN SF LIVE IN THESE OUTLYING EXPENSIVE EAST BAY AREAS AND CAN AFFORD TO PAY. LYFT IS SELLING OUT IT’S DRIVERS TO GET GREATER MARKET SHARE AGAINST UBER IN AREAS THAT LYFT NEVER HAD A STRONG PRESENCE IN TO BEGIN WITH. DRIVERS ARE PAYING FOR LYFT TO MARKET TO THESE OUTLYING AREAS. DRIVERS KNOW THAT THESE OUTER AREAS HAVE MORE DOWN TIME WITH LONGER DRIVE DISTANCES FOR PICK-UP AND AFTER DROP OFF. LYFT IS NOT THE PREFERRED PLATFORM FOR RIDERS OUT THERE – MUCH LESS REQUESTS. OUR ANSWER – BOYCOTT THESE AREAS UNTIL PRICES REVERT BACK!
