IT appears Uber is experiencing a few teething problems upon its recent arrival to Rockhampton.
A reporter arranged for an Uber pick up from The Morning Bulletin office yesterday morning at 8.34am and the driver cancelled the trip after four minutes.
The app said the driver was coming from Gracemere with an estimated wait time of 14 minutes.
The reporter then tried continuously throughout the day to arrange another trip, but no available cars could be found.
