    Anyone ever notice that Lyft doesn't take the most direct route when driving you somewhere?

    I've noticed in the two Lyft rides that I've received that the drivers enter the address of my destination and then the GPS calculates a route that is neither direct nor fast. In fact, my first Lyft experience, I went about 3-4 miles from home into DC and the driver took me over the river and then west for a destination east of where we were. Took about 45 minutes for what should have been a 15 minute trip. The next Lyft driver took us from battery park on the west side along the river and up the east side and then u-turned to get us into Brooklyn (he could have take the tunnel and went right past the exit for the Brooklyn bridge).

    Both simply followed the directions for the GPS.

    I always tell the driver which way I want them to go. I mostly use them locally though, so I know the preferred routes. They never have issues using my route.
