Uber Vs Lyft

Uber Vs Lyft
Here we have two competing services that offer the same thing, but are not available in all cities.

I have used Uber before and my driver was a college kid who sucked down Mountain Dew like crazy. He insisted that I sit up front for our 45 minute ride.

We ended up talking about sports, video games, his course he was taking at USC, and his experience during his time driving for Uber.

Some questions I had were about how he picked the time he was available, and if he had any limits to where he would take someone to.

One of his replies about where he would work is that he had many friends that lived on the coast. so, he would try to find people heading towards the same areas as his friends, then he would hang out with his friends for a while, then when he was ready to go, find someone who needed a ride close to where he lived.

That works of you are single and in school. For me personally, that would drive me nuts.

I don't know anyone who has used Lyft so I have no stories on how that service is.

Anyone reading this  - have you used either service? If so, which one, and which did you prefer?

  1. Never actually used either of them, but you hear so much more about Uber than Lyft. I live in Iowa, and I have seen several Uber drivers, but not so much as a single Lyft driver and I live just outside downtown in the damn capitol. So, I'm going to award the victory to Uber. Wider spread, more successful, gets more publicity. Not to mention a better logo as opposed to a car mustache.
