The Scoop On Late Night Driving

  • What's the deal with sick riders? A sick rider may come along once in every 3000 rides. You’re unlikely to get one, but in case you do, here’s how to handle it: take two photos and tell us what happened via our Help Center within 24 hours of incident.

  • How will late night rides affect my driver rating? Riders are just as likely to give 5 stars late at night as they are during other hours. Driving during party hours will not affect your rating.

  • What does rider demand look like late night? Demand is typically 100% higher in DFW from 11PM - 2AM, compared to other times.

  • How much more will I earn if I drive late night? Drivers in DFW earn on average 42% more from 11PM - 2AM than they do at other times.
