Received a ping 20 minutes away.... I got to my destination at 5:15 AM. I waited for pax to come out but he never came out after 5 minutes so I texted him and he did not respond so I called him saying "I was here."
He told me that I arrived too early and that pick up schedule was for 5:40AM.

Is there a way for us to know about this in advance?

What would you do?

fortunately he was going to the airport so it was good.

I've heard about this scheduling before, I don't understand how or why FUber has us drive "20 minutes" for a Pickup. To me this is a waste of 1/3rd an hour for the driver, and I'm sure that there are/were drivers within 10-15 minutes; it looks like they use that 20 minute distance ping as a rule of thumb...over being logical about a Driver's use of time and effort.

On the other hand I am glad this wa$ an Airport run.
