Wait a minute... there's something wrong with that screenshot? It's showing Lyft and Uber earnings from the same time period. So you drove for Lyft twice as much, it would show you made more with Lyft.

For that kind of comparison to work, you'd have to show, like, 4 hours of work with Uber compared to 4 hours at the same time of day with Lyft.

But you're showing us a shot from the same day or same week - that doesn't tell us anything at all. We'd have to see Lyft paying you double on similar time and distance trips to Uber.

In the end, I judge that you're not really making double on Lyft. Especially since their rates are exactly the same as Uber's! It's not even possible to make double.
