Yes, Uber likes to time out. It asks if you want to stay on, but turns you off anyhow.If you run them both on one phone it works better with Lyft in the background rather than Uber.
I've gotten those many times. I responded that 1) I'm not going 25 minutes to take someone 3 miles from their pickup. 2) They underestimate EVERY arrival time. Soon as I get it up in Waze it adds 2-5 minutes to the Lyft estimate.Lyft actually sent me an email today after I didn't pick up a "33 minute" ride in Cuyahoga Falls when I was in Massillon.
Like you could get from Massillon to the Falls in 33 minutes ever, yet alone at 4:30
However the email did say "
Passengers rely on drivers to provide a dependable service, and it’s important that you’re there for them. We’ve reached out to you several times about your substantial number of missed ride requests. If this problem continues, you’ll affect our ability to keep the platform running smoothly.
It’s best for the community when you accept the ride requests you receive, or simply log out of driver mode if you need a break.

Which is the strongest worded email about it I've received yet.
I'm guessing my acceptance rate is near 20% or so. I'm sorry Lyft, I'm not driving to Cuyahoga Falls or anywhere else 25+ minutes away for one of your rude customers to stiff me on a ride of 2 miles.
