We heard your feedback - introducing
the uberPOOL pickup timer


Starting today, when you arrive at an uberPOOL rider’s pickup location, you will see a timer in your app that will count down from 2 minutes. This is to help you track the 2 minute wait time for POOL pickups.

If a rider arrives before the 2 minute wait time is up, you can begin the trip and be on your way. If the rider does not arrive within 2 minutes, the timer will run out and prompt you to cancel and receive the $5 no-show fee.


Pickups on uberPOOL
How it will work

When riders take uberPOOL they agree to a 1 minute wait time. This change will help you know when to cancel on late riders, making the POOL experience better for you and other riders in the car.

Note that you will only receive the no-show fee if you have waited at the rider’s pickup location for at least 2 minutes.

Yes but does pax no-show still count toward driver cancelation rate? Does the driver still get penalized by timeouts through no fault of his own?

Timer for pool...why not one for x...this is straight bull....cause they really don't want to punish pool riders....this is just a way to get them to move their butts,so uber can make more money....they are simply trying to train the pax.
You are absolutely correct. Uber does not do things for the drives best interest only to benifit Uber.

yes they still count towards the driver's cancelation rate and drivers may be penalized by timeouts and/or permanent deactivation from the uber platform for a high cancelation rate.

do you get nastygrams from uber regarding your high cancelation rate?
i cancel 4-5 per week out of 40 rides and get texts from uber regarding my high cancelation rate.
do you just ignore the messages? or do you not get them? have you ever received a warning regarding high number of cancelations?
