If you’ve been driving for a while, you know probably know a lot of the driver lingo for Uber and Lyft: Surge, Quest, Boost, pinging, TOS, etc. But if you’re a new driver, these terms can be confusing. There’s no official Uber or Lyft manual (although you can check out our Ultimate Guides to Uber and Lyft!), so it’s not like you can even look up what all this stuff means.
Luckily for us, senior RSG contributor John Ince has been collecting rideshare abbreviations for us for a while and has put together the Ultimate Guide to Rideshare Driver Lingo. If you’ve ever wondered what a TCP is, or why anyone would “pee in the POOL”, John has you covered. Did we miss any lingo? Leave a note in the comments and, if it’s a good one, we’ll add it to this list!
