Lyft Driver's Hilarious Menu of 10 Different Types of Ride Options Is Pure Genius

If you’ve ever ridden in an Uber or a Lyft and had the driver chat away like a magpie when you felt like being quiet, or suddenly turn into a mute when you try to make conversation, you know what it’s like to be uncomfortable. One Lyft driver is trying to alleviate that problem by presenting his passengers with a menu of options when it comes to the type of ride they desire. The driver, known only as Cameron, provides his passengers with 10 options: 


  1. 1. The Awkward Ride: You ignore this menu completely and we sit in silence for the remainder of the trip. 
  2. 2. The Funny Ride: I tell you jokes or entertaining stories from my life. 
  3. 3. The Silent Ride: 
  4. 4. The Creepy Ride: I don’t say anything, but I keep staring at you in the rear-view mirror. 
  5. 5. The Karaoke Ride: We rock out to hits from the 80s, early 2000s, or literally whatever you want. 
  6. 6. The Bubbles Ride: We blow bubbles the whole time. 
  7. 7. The Small Talk Ride: We talk about how crazy the weather has been lately and I ask if you caught the game last night. 
  8. 8. The Therapy Ride: You vent to me about your problems and I listen. 
  9. 9. The Drunk Ride: You throw up in my car. 
  10. 10: The Cliche Ride: You ask me how long I’ve been driving for Lyft. 


Cameron says people often want something different in a ride and he likes giving them options to choose from. Let’s face it, the menu clears the air, takes the awkwardness out of riding in a stranger’s car, and establishes expectations for the ride…..on both sides. It’s a win-win.
