When and where will I get the most delivery requests?

There’s usually higher demand for delivery requests:

  • During meal times. The highest demand for food delivery occurs around lunch (generally 11am-2pm) and dinner (generally 5pm-9:30pm).
  • When it’s raining. Please stay safe when road conditions are slippery!
  • In locations that have more merchants, typically in downtown areas. Busy areas may also be marked with higher Boost multiples when you sign in to your Driver app.

You’ll receive occasional app, email, and/or text communications from Uber about high-demand areas, promotions, peak times, busy merchants, and more.
