Is there ever a situation where I wouldn’t get a ride because too many nearby drivers declined?

Is there ever a situation where I wouldn’t get a ride eventually because too many drivers declined? Or the distance of the potential drivers got too far from my location?

    Uber is now using Batch Matching instead of closest driver. Here is a a screenshot and a link to the entire article.

    I get same request over a 20 min time period 3 to 4X. Usually rider has a low rating, shared ride, pool ride, or fake name. If I declined once going to decline next 3X. It is rather annoying.

    In this day and age, highly unlikely since there are 8 cars on every corner. Possible if you’re in a rural town in South Dakota in the middle of a snow storm. 😂

    Guru answer is dead on. And it’s super annoying if you are the only driver.  I sometimes would have to leave the location to make it stop. 

    Imagine a scenario where the ride was declined or cancelled and the rider is still trying to find a ride. How awkward to be matched up again.
