When and where are the most riders?

WHEN In most cities, highest demand for rides occurs during weekends, rush hours, and evening hours.

You can use your Driver app to help plan your week with the Hourly Trends feature. To see a chart of when we expect your city will be busiest, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap the arrow icon in the lower-left corner of your app
  2. Select “See hourly trends”
  3. Tap the city name next to “View For” to specify the area you want to drive in

You can set reminders to drive at certain times by moving the slider to the time frame under the hourly chart, then tapping “ADD TO MY DAY”

WHERE Use the heat map in your Driver app to compare the demand in different areas around your city. The map displays different color intensities to indicate areas of low, high, and surging demand for rides.

When you zoom in and out on the map, you’ll see surge pricing estimates as multiples. For example, you might see hexagons of 1.3x, 1.4x, or 2.1x.

The heat map is provided for informational purposes only. For the most timely surge information, please see the amount shown at the bottom of your screen.
