The differences between the two TNCs that I currently work with are innumerable; however, the drop-off/pick-up processes are largely dependent on the type of rideshare trip you’ve received.
Traditionally, cab drivers have been considered unfriendly. With the advent of the “gig economy” in recent years, individuals from all walks of life have filled the role of cabbies. Except rideshare drivers only can keep using Uber and Lyft if they avoid bad ratings. Most drivers treat this gig like a business, which means putting yourself first.

I know this issue comes up a lot with rideshare drivers. You get a ping, drive to the pick-up location, and find out that some kid needs a ride home. A couple issues arise when this situation occurs.
