Does anyone know whether we as Uber drivers get paid for waiting, both at unscheduled stops and scheduled ones? Is that why some people don't schedule stops, just request them after the ride has started?
As long as the trip is in progress, we get paid per minute and per mile. Our rate card in Detroit is .60/mile and .1125/minute. So while we do get paid for waiting, its peanuts. I tell pax that for both schedule and unscheduled stops that they have 3 minutes. Make sure they don't leave anything in your car to 'anchor' you.
