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?
Is there ever a situation where I wouldn’t get a ride because too many nearby drivers declined?
The Guru Take
Yes and no. Uber app will make multiple attempts with your nearby drivers
Yes and no. The request continues to cycle through the nearby drivers who match the profile, i.e. closest ones by proximity usually. So if every driver around you declines, it goes back to the driver who received the request first. (The it goes through the list again. If new drivers enter the proximity, I believe they can be included.)
This can get troublesome and rather annoying for the driver when there’s only one driver nearby. The request can keep coming back to the same driver.
At some point, the user is told that no drivers are available. ...so make sure you keep your rider ratings up. :)
