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. Select a vehicle type and then click the info button to see a complete fare breakdown with the per minute wait time fee charge below. The wait time fee is automatically applied to your trip, and you'll see it on your trip receipt.
