Uber reduces the chances that drivers will cancel your ride
There's more. Later in June, drivers in some cities worldwide will have a "pause" option that stops new requests from coming in. You shouldn't have drivers cancel on you just because they're about to have lunch or sign off for the day. Also, they're more likely to be patient if you take a while to get out the door. Uber is expanding a policy that pays drivers for any wait longer than 2 minutes. That does mean that you'll pay a bit extra if you're pokey, but it beats dealing with an annoyed driver or having to hail another car entirely. A dozen US cities will be using this policy later this month.
