    11:19-11:32 is 7 minutes for Uber

    Here is a typical response from Uber support in their avoidance of paying waiting and boost fees. Besides the bad math and being 6 hours off, it takes about 300 words in turning me down. Often they use the tactic of assigning you a high hassle or impossible task to put you off, like requesting a...

    Are there REALLY enough Uber drivers on the road?

    So has this been happening often to anyone else? You get a pax request (Uber only) and they say it's 7-15 minutes away. And mostly when you're in the middle of a current trip. I've once just literally picked up the passenger and my Uber goes off offering a following request that's 15 minutes...

    App now reports you to restaurant when you click 'order not ready'

    When you clicked 'order not ready' in the past, the app would advise you that you could cancel the order after a certain number of minutes, I think it was 5 initially. Now it informs you that your action has been reported to the restaurant, which makes reporting the beginning of a wait awkward...

    Cancellation rate uber eats

    For those of you silly enough, like me, to do uber eats, do you accept every order or pick and choose? It seems that if any when I do cancel an order I have to wait a good 10 minutes before the next one comes. I've heard from restaurants that if they take too long drivers start to cancel but I...

    7 minute thing

    A good friend of mine, who is a driver, shared with me something that I now do a lot, and thought I would pass it along. When a pax says "I want to go here for a few minutes, will you wait for me?" Or a drive thru request. My immediate response is, "Sure, just keep in mind the 7 minute thing."...

    Where do you wait for rides - poll

    When it slows down, where do you go in the hopes of getting a ride? Just a fun little poll, to pass the time.

    5 min cancel window for fee, 6+ minute timer on app.

    Hi guys, I've been waiting longer than usual because of this damn timer and I wanted to know if anyone knows the answer to my problem. I thought you only had to wait 5 min to cancel on a pax.. waited 5 min at a hotel with nowhere to pull over, got shooed off by an employee after 5 min &...

    Pax Wrong Location call

    Why do pax call you after you have waited 4 minutes, that the location they gave is incorrect, and expect you to drive to their new location. Does the Uber Rider app, notify them after 4 minutes? Annoying as hell, if you cancel it after waiting another minute you will have to remember the...

    Uber Eats and waiting

    Just signed up last week and doing Uber Eats as well. Just a little frustrated with the restaurants. Can drive 15 mins to do pick up. Only to find they don't start cooking it til I arrive. I don't get paid to sit around. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Food Deliveries on UberX

    Have any of y'all gotten an UberX request for a food delivery. I had someone from an apartment order food from a slightly sketchy Ethiopian restaurant, had me wait at least ten minutes at the pickup location. After 2-3 minutes I called and she had to call the restaurant and said the food isn't...

    No lights at FHV lot

    Can't Get Approved

    Please tell me I'm not the only one that's been waiting (or already waited) for over 3 weeks and no approval? And it's not like I'm sitting here and waiting; I'm literally in constant contact with Uber every single day via email. I get a different person every single time and a different (yet...

    Pax requests stop and asks you to wait.....

    I know you guys are seeing this also so I want some input as to how to handle the situation since I am a new driver. I have had several riders ask me to make a quick stop so they can get cigs, soda, etc. and ask me to wait while they are getting it. While waiting I am getting the per minute...
