It looks like Uber has changed the rules yet again.

It used to be that the DF never expired if you never reached the final destination.

Now, it expires after 1 hour.

As long as it's still 6 for jersey and NY burbs. I'm fine.

It used to expire for me last year all the time. I thought it was supposed to. In fact, I seem to remember a thread on this forum where it was discussed how to extend the time. There was speculation as to how long it would last oh, and that if you cancelled it before that and restarted you got a whole reset on the timer.

That sorta sucks. I usually set me filter for some far-away land and if for some reason, I start getting close I high tail it back away from it as far as I can get before another ping rolls through. Now, along with counting how may rides I just "no thanks-ed" my way out of, I now have to manage to remember what time I took a pox on that filter. Thanks Goober, for reminding me that I can't remember chit anyway.

I know it's more than 2 hours. I used to do back to back to back runs into NYC off-peak on ONE DF.

it was insane.
I wrote about it here a while back, but before they went from 2 df to 6, I was able to keep a filter alive for 8+ hours on a regular basis.

I actually found it by accident. After I did my first drop off I forgot to turn off the app since it doesn't work in NYC anyway.

Got back to jersey and a few minutes later I get another request for NYC. LOL

The DF was still in play. As long as I did not cross over to the final destination on the DF. It was live.
