Uber/Lft Drivers Haggling for Tips and Not Following Navigation.

Definitely report it. I’ve had pushy drivers before and reported. They definitely need to know if the driver is purposely extending the trip. Lyft had been great responding to me in the past and reviewing trips to adjust prices afterwards. 

This behavior is outside of their terms for drivers so they need to be made aware to remedy the situation. This behavior from many cab drivers is the whole reason Lyft and Uber were created.

Was he following any navigation at all? I know I’ve had some drivers use Waze instead of the route within the Lyft app. Was your trip more expensive as a result?

Honestly, I’d probably just give him a bad review and let it go. ETA: I don’t think you’d be wrong to report, I probably just wouldn’t take the time.

Recently I had a driver pick me up from the airport and after I got out of the car, he send me a text saying he deserved a tip because he had to circle once at the airport while he was in a no standing zone… The nerve!! A driver should not be able to see your cell phone number after the drive is complete.

I would just give a bad review and mention in the review why, and report it if you want. That’s unprofessional behavior, but not indicative of most of the drivers.

I would probably write an email to Lyft to inform them. It may save someone else the trouble you went through!

MrsChatham :  wow how did he get your number?! I thought they couldn’t see your  number and could only call/text thru  the app and couldn’t actually see it. Definitely notify them of this!
