because you make trip because some people like me may not like driving to Chicago!! I want to do airport runs to Ohara and work more in my area and other farther suburbs.
See Uber & Lyft drivers cannot see you’re destination, until you’re physically IN the car. By then, it’s too late for them to contest. Yes, I know you put in the address early, and the driver “accepted” the ride. You think “Well, he knows where I’m going already, so he must be ok with it.” This is false. Whether you’re going one block away, or 90 miles away, Uber & Lyft prevent drivers from seeing the passenger destination until they confirm you’ve been picked up, and have failed miserably in communicating this to passengers.
These apps use google maps by default so they do tell you where to go within the app. You don't have to use this and can use your own GPS if you prefer to.
If only. It seems like such a basic feature that I can't believe it doesn't exist.
Traditional cab services always tell their drivers where the destination is because, as you said, some people only want to drive certain routes or areas.
You will get directions and if you allow GPS on your phone, it will guide you. I think it is best to use GPS that gives you verbal directions so you are not distracted while on the road.
You can choose which people to accept so if you want to only focus on one area, just only accept rides from that area. This will reduce what you make but will allow you to focus on areas you know more. GPS is built into the app though.
