    So earlier today I had a rider that wanted me to take her a lot of places that she didn't put in the app, wanted me to wait at a place for several minutes change her mind about where she was going several times. All in all she was probably in my car for more than half an hour.

    At first I didn't mind it because I figured I was getting paid to take her to all of these places, but when I looked at my balance that didn't increase very much at all.

    Should you take a rider somewhere if they don't put that destination in the app? Do you get paid for side trips?

    You still get paid based on time and distance traveled, but time sitting doesn't pay very much. It's also possible that after the trip was over the rider claimed that you took an inefficient route and got some of their money back.

    I recommend you ask the rider to continually update their destination in the app for every stop. Lyft does allow for a multi-stop trip, but it is limited in the number that the rider can enter.
