I've really been questioning how well this algorithm actually works. I noticed the more I pay attention the more often I see people curbside or at least on sidewalks looking at their UBER app. It's alway a wonder when I've spent 10 minutes being 3 minutes from an exact spot where someone looking at the uber app is standing without a ping to a pax. Who is the algorithm sending, where are they coming from?? I'm literally right here in front of them, sometimes I even park for a few minutes to see how long it takes. I have seen people waiting 5 minutes more than once. Sure some people are maybe just checking the app, maybe some are waiting for a Black car or other services but plenty of people are standing there waiting for a car that the "algorithm " is sending.
