I was supposed to get picked up 2-3 minutes from when I requested ride. Was outside waiting 1 minute later. Noticed car icon on map was going in circles and pickup time fluctuating so I texted driver regarding this at 6:38 pm. Text "read" but no response. Texted again few minutes later asking if he's still coming.
Again, "read" but no response. Called driver but vmail said (in effect) party not accepting messages. Sent one last text to driver saying if I don't get response, will get another ride. Tried to cancel but warned that if cancelled, will have to pay fee. Driver never came.
Never had this issue before with Uber.

I'm assuming it's within the law to attach his profile info (incl. photo) because it's accessible by the public?

It might be within the "law" but it's not allowed here on the forum.

Uber penalizes drivers for cancelling so it's better for you to cancel if the driver isn't moving fast enough for your liking. If Uber charges you a $5 cancel fee, just dispute it with them and they will refund it.

Every time that I have cancelled as a customer if the driver was not "making progress toward me", I have not been charged a cancellation. Even if I cancelled after five minutes for this reason, never has Uber charged me.

Conversely, as a driver, when I decide to do a "no-cover" when my cancel-after-accept rate gets too high, I have been paid the cancellation only twice; once on Fubar ; once on Gryft. On Gryft they actually took it back from me. I did not dispute it, as it was a deliberate no-cover.

you got shuffled
That is what happened.

Welcome to YouPeaDotNet. I like to hear from customers. This is mostly a driver's forum, but, it is an open forum. We have a few customers who do post here with some regularity, but not many. Despite that, you are welcome to post here on any topic that interests you.
