Doesn't make sense, why would they accept the call in the first place

did you do a fare quote? I THINK if you do they see your route and if not what they want, they may cancel...just a possibility-try without fare quote?

only reason I began to think this is because my brother actually knows a guy who's an Uber driver and my bro said the guy said that when he see's where someone's going he chooses if he wants the ride...never thought they could tell...but maybe my brother misunderstood

That's what I heard as well, but maybe they get the destination area but not address?
I've gone to NJ dozens of times and have never had a cancel. They do get $$$$ from me, though

They do, but the system lags and it can take time

If they cancel after 5 minutes do you get a $5 credit?

No, but I'd guess they might give you one if you complain.

They can definitely see your destination. I know for a fact.

Best practice is to just not enter it if you see it's not popular.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.
