How are Wait Time fees calculated?

Wait Time fees allow you to be compensated by riders for the time spent waiting at a pickup location.

For most trips:
Wait Time fees begin to accumulate 2 minutes after you arrive at your rider's pickup location, and are charged at a per minute rate. Wait time fees do not apply to UberPool trips or certain trips starting at airports and venues. Please note that if a rider is charged a cancellation fee, they will not be charged for wait time.

For Uber Black and SUV trips:
Wait Time fees begin to accumulate 5 minutes after you arrive at your rider's pickup location. Please note that if a rider is charged a cancellation fee, they will not be charged for wait time.
