It could mean no fee if the pax cancel, not the driver.

Or (unlikely) that the driver gets,a no show fee after 5 minutes but from uber not the pax.

I haven't had to agree to anything new since the SRF increase (houston). I have also received no text or email about this.

This will work both ways. By doing this, Uber is saying that drivers' waiting time has no value. And if a driver waiting for pax has no value then there is consequently no problem if the driver decides to take off immediately upon arriving at a potential no show situation, or after 30 seconds, or one minute etc.

I usually take off after a minute or two anyway if the pax is not there.

This is bullshit. Although I did notice that I had a cancellation on Saturday night that didn't pay even though I was less than a block away when the cancellation came in.

Oh its not optimism. Uber likes to try things out so you just never know.

If I don't get a cancellation fee for waiting I'll be calling every pax to verify exact location and cancelling if they don't answer. Also will tell them to be waiting as I won't.

In Houston its still $6 as of now. I emailed Uber and was confirmed its still $6.
Also we haven't got a new Service Fee Schedule other then the one I agreed to dated Oct 2, 2015.
I updated tonight to v3.56.0 of the app and didn't have a new fee schedule. But thats not saying it won't happen later today.

Its been looked into here in Houston. The pax doesn't pay for cancellations. But Uber does.
Even in on our "driver" website in help about cancels it explains we get paid after 5mins enroute and after 5mins for waiting.
Also we haven't got a new "service fee schedule" to agree to.

On the "pax" side of the website it says $0 for cancellations. That means they pay nothing. Doesn't mean the drivers don't get paid.


And it makes the raise in SRF make more sense.

I am sure this had nothing to do with the thousands of drivers (many on UberPeople) that took advantage of the cancellation fees. This pisses me off something fierce and personally I think it's ridiculous however you don't have to go far on these forums to read all the drivers stories on how they got as close to the pin as possible without being seen so they can wait 5 minutes to get their cancellation fees.

I am lowering my acceptance to 7 minutes or less away. Not going to take any chances.

Part of the new cancellation rules are that you have to be driving to the pin and on-time versus driving away, so that helped curb some of the abuse. But yes, I agree.

Insert: This is why we can't have nice things. lol
