Have you ever needed to go to a meeting, fraternity party, or gender reveal, but Uber said there were “No Cars Available?”
It’s particularly aggravating if you’re stuck in a less-than-vibrant part of town or on the outskirts of town since you don’t have any other way to get there (if you wish to travel at night).
What do you do if you keep checking Uber and it says there are “No Cars Available?” In this article, I will explain several possible solutions to this issue, as well as ways to avoid them.
But before we get there, it’s important to understand why you’re seeing the “No Cars Available” message on Uber in the first place.
Why does Uber say ‘No Cars Available’?
Several potential causes of the ‘No Cars Available’ message in Uber have been sorted out below:
1. Out of Service/Remote Locations
Isolated or Areas Without ServiceIt goes without saying that the Uber app will display “No Cars Available” if you have recently gone to a place that is not within Uber’s service scope.
Locations on the outskirts of cities, in the countryside, or areas with poor or nonexistent public transit options are often not serviced by Uber. Given this, it should come as no surprise that these areas do not have access to automobiles.
There’s also a chance that you’re in a location where there are never any cars available at a certain time of day.
An area may experience “No Cars Available” because, for example, Uber drivers may opt not to work late at night when there is less demand for their services.
2. Out-of-date App
Inadequate software you haven’t updated to the most recent version of the Uber app in a while, you may see the message “No Cars Available” when you try to order a ride.
Therefore, even when it is broad daylight or simply very unlikely that you will not locate an Uber taxi where you are, it is conceivable that you will see no automobiles near you due to the antiquated version.
3. Bad Weather
Poor WeatherWhen severe weather strikes, including a prolonged downpour, a flood, or a hailstorm, Uber may temporarily suspend its services until the storm passes.
If your city has issued a severe weather warning, it’s also possible that Uber and similar apps would show you the message “No Cars Available.”
4. Policy Violation by the User
Policy Breach by UserTaxi companies has a “no ride” list where they subtly notify you that you cannot utilize their services.
If your Uber rating is low or if you have a history of poor conduct (but not bad enough to be banned), the app will continue to report “No Cars Available” even when you know there are dozens of cars waiting nearby.
Riders provide feedback for drivers after each trip, and drivers leave feedback for riders, so if you have low ratings, other drivers may be hesitant to pick you up.
5. Network Issues
Problems with the NetworkHaving inconsistent network connections might lead Uber to display “No Cars Available” more frequently than not.
Do some online research to determine whether you are experiencing network problems; if so, that might be why you are seeing a “No Cars Available” message.
6. ‘Phantom Cars’ that don’t exist
Unrealized “Ghost Cars”The unanswerable issue here is whether or not there are NEVER any taxis when Uber reports “No Cars Available.” The unambiguous response is “no.”
One may reasonably question, “If I can see this many vehicles on the map, why does Uber state ‘No Automobiles Available,’ anyway?” if they are seeing ghost cars clogging the map and moving about on their screen.
It’s possible that these “ghost automobiles” don’t exist at all. Recent polls have shown that Uber’s strategy of showing “No Cars Available” even when there are none is designed to keep consumers engaged with the app.
The benefit to Uber is how exactly? Users will be fooled into thinking that a taxi is available even if none really is by the presence of these imaginary vehicles.
Meanwhile, there is a good chance that by the time the user waits, at least one real-time Uber partner will be present in the area, allowing the user’s trip request to be accepted.
7. Other Reasons
The Existence of Additional MotivesThere might be no vehicles available on Uber for a variety of social and random causes.
When Uber drivers are on strike or there is a worldwide health emergency that prevents people from traveling, the app will display the message “No Cars Available.”

Conclusion: What should I do when No Cars are Available in Uber?
Don’t freak out if you get the “Uber: No Cars Available” message. If at first, you don’t succeed, consider waiting a few minutes and trying again.
Put rides on the calendar in advance from now on. That way, the likelihood of that occurring is less, and you have more time to prepare for another form of transportation if it does occur.
