Lyft Culture

Lyft Culture

On a Reddit post, Lyft drivers shared how Lyft sugarcoated their driving community. All Lyft drivers were expected to put community above all else. Nothing could go wrong on the Lyft platform.

On the Lyft Facebook page, the driving and ride community enjoyed sporting the Pink mustaches. The real truth at Lyft is that drivers are deactivated and passengers can say and rate drivers however they want. Lyft drivers are treated like expendable car parts. When their ratings dipped below community standards, their time at Lyft abruptly ended. 

Lyft drivers in Chicago have shared that Lyft implemented Happy Hour rates during Rush Hour and other times and never notified them of this action. Drivers never knew anything about the trip rates because this ridesharing company concealed this data. Happy Hour would activate without warning them of the 50% slash in prices. 

Only certain comments are shared and the rest of this secretive society, this culture is locked away in a vault. The moment a top-rated driver stood up for their driving community, Lyft deactivated their account.

The first thing we thought of Lyft is their mission to create a unique driving culture. This culture is more like Scientology, the cult mentality that subliminal deposits a fabricated truth into followers. 

Lyft drivers claimed that negative feedback on Lyft is rarely found on review websites. Nevertheless, Lyft passengers are empowered to control the driving experience. What they say and/or report goes. 

This cult mentality resembles Charles Manson and his crew. Whatever Manson wants is what his followers deliver. 

The Pink mustache sends off this false light. Drivers feel an uncontrollable anxiety in which their voices are silenced and their problems are ignored. Lyft drivers contact us and share their horror stories. Lyft does nothing to address these concerns. 

One Southern California church we got invited to attend had this strange aura. Every attendant kept reading their Bibles, always smiled, claimed to spend all of their available time at the church and never had a down moment. Something wasn't right about this environment. We attended a few Bible sessions and Church once, and then moved on. These followers kept contacting us and refused to let us go.  

We see this depiction in movies, where people are brainwashed to accept a message, a belief. The Wicker Man movie, starring Nicholas Cage, encodes this cult mentality in their female community. On television, The Following operates in this premise. 

Lyft's culture has this persona about them. Drivers find this strange, inhibiting environment at Lyft to be disturbing. They enjoy driving for Lyft and make decent money performing ridesharing services. However, Lyft and this fascination for the Pink mustache is just weird. 

It takes more than a Pink mustache to entice people. What is really inside this Pink mustache that makes people follow its lead? Lyft doesn't do anything different that is better than their competitors. So much emphasis is place upon this pink, furry thing. It blows in the wind, stopping people in their tracks. 

Are subliminal waves traveling in thin air? Once people see this Pink mustache, they automatically fall for Lyft and their culture.
