Recap: Lyft Spending $100 Million On Hubs, Jabbrbox ‘Lounge’ & More

  • Just a heads up that there seems to be some issues with the giftcards.com app when activating, best to call in to activate currently.
  • Jabbrrbox: An airport lounge all to yourself by CNN Travel. $30 per hour seems exceptionally expensive, considering that even paid lounge access with no priority pass can usually be had for like $40 (or $27 with priority pass and no free passes) and that includes food & drinks.

 

  • Kimpton Secret Password Returns for Summer 2018: Three Words to Unlock Freebies by Mommy Points. Password is ‘out of office’ I wish people would just put that sort of thing in the title.
  • Lyft is spending $100M on new hubs for drivers by Curbed via Michael W Travels. I’m not surprised that Uber/Lyft are having driver retention issues given how poorly most drivers are paid. It’s a real issue considering they are sometimes spending upwards of $1,500 per driver on acquisition costs. I like that Lyft/Uber are seemingly placing more importance on drivers as the quality has definitely declined with the big push to make rides cheaper. On a more cynical note I imagine setting up these hubs is part of a long term plan for servicing autonomous vehicles as well.

how is jabbrbox different than the old phone booths? Amazing the airports don’t already provide this service.

The thing is what viruses will they upload if I use their USB.
