Changes to wait times

October 25, 2021 / United Kingdom

We have made some changes to our wait time fees and thresholds that we hope will help make Uber better for you. From 25-10-2021 we will be slightly increasing the free waiting time for riders, but also increasing the fees per minute of wait time thereafter.

Charges will vary across different  Uber products. On UberX, for example, fees are increasing from 25p per minute to 35p per minute.

You can see how it will affect the rides you take in the table below.
