This happen twice today.
The pax puts in the address on the next street.
When you get there after 2 minutes or so they call and tell you to go around the corner
to the other street..
Once you move from the first location you can no longer get a no show ride.
then they call and say they will be right out and keep you waiting until you cancel.
I didnt move for 5 minutes and made $8.00 for my first 2 trips..lol
It happen one more time today and i got paid.

You can go back to the pin and cancel it there. They better be outside at the correct location.
I'd arrive at the pin. Wait 3 minutes, then call and find out they're 3 blocks away. Check surges to see if they're scamming the surge, then go there. If I don't see them within a minute I go back to the pin and cancel because 5 minutes were up

Most I'll do is drive forward or backward 1-2 house. Sometimes the location isn't accurate. But if u ask me to go around the block or two blocks away I'll say " ok no problem"......wait for the 5 minutes and some change mark and cancel, pax no show

You can usually tell when it's a gps screw-up vs. a pax trying to get over.

There's an address in Clifton that gps will take you on a wild goose chase, only to end up in a graveyard (assuming the gate is unlocked) that's actually behind the property. It only does this if you're travelling from particular directions, though.

In case you're wondering, it's 734 (or 743?) Passaic Ave. If you're going there, don't turn onto Delawanna from Main. It's not a through street. :eek:
