By now, most of you have already heard that Lyftis going to be testing Taco Mode, a new featureallows Lyft riders to stop at Taco Bell during the course of its journeys home late at night. This news has many Lyft riders excited, because if the test is all very well, it’ll signify Taco Mode will benationwide.However, Lyft drivers are pissed aboutTaco Mode, and we can’t actually blame them.
After news transgressed about Taco Mode on July 25, many concerned Lyft drivers took to Twitter to express their discontent about the possible new feature.
Hell no! I don’t want people eating messy tacos in my automobile!
How dare you invite people to eat in MY car without asking ME?
Note to self, never drive Lyft at night.
You paying me extra for this?
That’s a fair topic. I, too, reckon the drivers should be compensated somewhat to make an extra stop and peril a disaster in their backseat.
Some folks are realizing the glass half full and are coming up with solutions to construct the new feature work.
This would definitelyavoid a mess, but you risk get into an altercation.
Others think this new feature might attract an entirely new wave of customers.
Well, @MobilityPulse might be on to something here, but are new patrons worth a huge mess and little pay?
In true Olivia Pope fashion, Lyft used Twitter toassure riders and motorists alike that motorists can choose to opt out of Taco Mode if they don’t wish to participate once the feature is officially rolled out.
Taco Mode is being tested for a two week period in the Newport Beach area of California. If the test proves to be successful, then the new feature will roll out commonwealth wide in 2018. Consumers can only trigger Taco Mode between 9 p. m. and 2 a.m. when most people are done partying for the night which makesthe new feature a obses for drivers.
Let’s hope Lyft decides to compensate motorists moderately for the possible new addition to their job description.
