Making your Uber driver wait could now cost you

Indy Star reports:
Ridesharing service Uber introduced a new wait time fee and a shortened cancellation window in an email sent by the service Wednesday evening.

The wait time fee will compensate drivers for time spent waiting for their passengers once they have arrived at a pickup location. Two minutes after a driver arrives, the charge will begin. A note will appear in the rider's Uber app.

The new wait time fee will be per-minute based and will vary based on your vehicle option and city, according to Uber.

"Many drivers have told us that some of our support policies feel stacked against them and seem to put riders’ interests above theirs," an Uber news release reads.
Time is money.
