    Hi JCP123:

    After speaking with XL owners, the XL platform is unfortunately only going to be requested about 10 to 15 percent of the time. 22 mpg to move flat fares is not a path to prosperity for sure. :(

    Is your van qualified for Black SUV maybe? A MB or BMW X7 come to mind? Horribly expensive to own and maintain but Black with the $4 to $8k Commercial insurance plus your local TLC/TNC/TCP licensing will see you at $3.00/mile or more.

    jcp123 Caliente!

    Unfortunately no, it isn’t on the list for Black level service. 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. I do plan on wandering to Dallas on weekends though - apparently that’s a cash cow for an acquaintance who does ride share. But he has an HHR which should be marginally more efficient.

    Lyft is taking an awful long time to complete my background. That’s the most frustrating part ATM.

    Hi JCP123:

    I drove Dallas just over a year ago and their rates were $0.60/$0.12, the same as today. XL which is a 15 percent request from most discussions is $0.9375/$0.1875 and those are not great rates unfortunately. :(

    Good Luck out there and keep us updated.

    That's a really unfortunate dude. It can't be helped though.
