And

If you’re the type of person who orders an Uber before you’re even done getting ready, you might want to think again; the company will now charge late fees in more places if you keep your driver waiting.

If the rider is more than two minutes late, they’ll begin getting charged (rates vary by city). That said, drivers must still wait at least five minutes because they can declare a customer a no-show and charge them a cancellation fee.

Aussie? Are you there?

Can taxis charge if a fare doesn't show up?

If you cancel within 5 minutes, you won’t be charged.
If you tap the cancel button after 5 minutes, we will let you know that a $10* fee will apply if you confirm the cancellation.

If you are not at the pickup location or your driver cannot get in touch with you, our $10* cancellation fee will still apply.

It won't work.

WAY cheaper and FAR more effective would be a spray can of pig's breath or a pork sausage shoved in his face.

If your local hardware store has run out of stock, then make Marla-from-Colorada useful and get her to send you a small can of mace, pepper-spray, or bear spray.

Battery acid is optional.

I did a style of Karate called Kan Zen Ryu  .... in the approx. 20 yrs it had been established in Australia before I joined, there wasn't a single incident of a student losing a street fight. There were past students who maybe did it for a year or two and then stopped, who lost a street fight. But no one who did it long term.


Grin Grin Grin

That just goes to show what arseholes these kids and you were getting into 'street-fights' all the time. Who gets into 'street-fights' except idiots who provoke fights by acting like geese with long necks?

See, here's another thing (and we get in it Cabs in different circumstances) which Uber Outlaws are gonna cop...and it is demonstrated in the video.

Bitch customer orders on the app, and pays the pre-determined price in advance.  'Oh goodie...my Outlaw is on the way........oh goodie, my outlaw has arrived.  Now, I'll just have a few more drinkie poos, powder my nose, ferk around.  All is good.'

Meanwhile, the Outlaw is sitting in the Outlaw Car waiting for Bitch to get there and he is not paid one ferking cent while the Bitch has a few more drinkie poos and powders her nose.  He should have been able to dust her job off ("No Job" in Cab Land) within five minutes of arriving at pick up and get on with the next job.  But no, Outlaw Dick Head is worried he will earn some baddie feedback points from the Bitch, so he sits there with his finger implanted whistling Dixie.   Bitch turns up....and you see the result.

No sympathy from me.


Agreed.

Time is money. Can't be twiddling your thumbs while the meter isn't ticking, and then when the bitch! eventually does arrive and plonk her skinny ass in the back of the cab ~ the stench of marijuana drifting off her clothes damn-near sends the driver into a high. I believe this happens a lot in Boulder, Colorado.

then the next time they'll think again before they make their ride wait half an hour and then act like spoilt little bitches


Bobby has a good point here, and it's not as though this happens all the time to the driver.

Herb, Uber drivers can cancel a trip and charge a fee if the rider doesn't show up within 5 minutes, and 2 minutes in some cities.

Aussie has not done his homework.   Cheesy

Well that sounds reasonable then.

I haven't taken a taxi in well over 10 years, and I've never owned a mobile phone. I assume the Uber driver is given a visa card number over the phone from which he makes a transfer to his own account - but then how do you stop him making further illicit withdrawals from your account?

The rider must register with Uber through the app and supply a valid credit card.

All charges are generated by the drivers app based on time/distance (like a cab) but the Uber company hits the riders credit card then remits the driver.

Apart from no-shows, when a rider requests an Uber car, they have a 5 minute window to cancel it, otherwise they're charged a cancellation fee.

So the driver does not have the riders CC details, so can't defraud them.
