As a rider, it's a good practice to only request a ride when you're near the pickup location and ready to meet the driver.
In some cities, there is a charge for riders who are 2 or more minutes late to their pickup spot. This fee will begin accumulating 2 minutes (5 minutes for Black or Black SUV trips) after your driver arrives. The fee is based on the per-minute wait time rate that is applicable in that city. To see the per-minute wait time rate, ensure you are logged in and run a price estimate.
