When I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I caught a Lyft ride from the Terra Cotta Warrior (really good Shaanxi food). The Lyft app had a picture of the car and the license plate number.

Despite this, another car (not sure if Lyft, Uber, freelance, crook, or someone else) pulled in right behind the guy, honking his horn and gesturing for us to get in *his* car. Yeah, sure, guy. Not gonna happen.

/I assume Uber has a similar way of showing what car to look for, but haven't used their app.

Not sure why this is on the business tab, and also not sure why subby thinks Uber is expensive. For short rides, its only slightly cheaper than a cab (maybe 20%).  For longer trips, its much cheaper. A trip to the airport for me is less than half the cost on Uber as a cab.

Only used Lyft a few times, had a bad experience. Seems they sent two drivers with identical cars to pick up me and someone else at locations that were next door to each other. Drivers got us switched somehow, and I got charged for someone else's much longer ride. Worse, the only way to get some customer service as far as I could tell was to give the driver a lousy rating, and I didn't want to do that to the guy, he was really nice.

Every time I've used Lyft or Uber, the driver asks me if I'm "Easily Distracted" (not my real name).
