The Cars Uber Shows You Before You Hail A Ride Are Bogus SFist

“I know this seems misleading to you," an Uber staffer tells Vice of the Uber cars you see on the app as you prepare to a hail a car, "but it is meant as more of a visual effect more than an accurate location of drivers in the area." The rider map is just a "screensaver," the staffer continued. "Once a rider requests a trip there will be actual information about the [drivers'] location showing up in the app."

No wonder a driver who's five minutes away always responds instead of the three that are on my block!
