App changes you should know about
Some changes were made to your partner app today that will make it easier to use. Please click below for details on how to use the new app!
THERE WERE REPORTS OF ENFORCEMENT TODAY: CLICK HERE FOR UBER'S COMMENT
UBERPOOL IS HERE! FREE RIDES TODAY!
Starting now, your app will automatically start receiving uberPOOL requests. Partners can increase their earnings with uberPOOL! Want a refresher on uberPOOL? Watch the video!
PRO TIP: ACCEPT THE 2ND REQUEST
If you are on an uberPOOL trip, you might get a request for a 2nd pickup. If you accept that request, you get paid for the travel time to the 2nd rider. Not accepting the 2nd request makes for a very poor rider experience!
PLAN YOUR WEEK ON UBER
Maximize your earnings by working the hours with the highest earnings! Check out the average earnings from the past few weeks below:
Thunderstorms expected for rush hour Tuesday morning. Bad weather, combined with the free uberPOOL promo, will make for huge demand and surge pricing! You won't want to miss morning rush hour!

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK!
Rain is expected on Tuesday afternoon. Expect evening rush hour on Tuesday to be much busier than normal!
POSTED BY BEN
Last week, the busiest hours came during evening rush hours. Rain Tuesday & Wednesday will cause extra demand. There is a HUGE opportunity to earn from 8 pm - 10 pm on all days of the week. Partners who observe Ramadan usually sign off at this time. This means that less cars are available at these times. There is very high demand and surge pricing! Ramadan will be running for another two weeks.
BUSIEST HOURS THIS WEEK
Rain on Tuesday and Wednesday will cause extra demand. Rain is expected during morning rush hour on Tuesday!
IF YOU OBSERVE RAMADAN:
There are two ways to earn even while you are observing Ramadan.
IN THE MORNING:
Consider working morning rush hour! Partners who observe Ramadan tell us they wake up earlier than normal. Demand is really high from 6 am - 10 am every weekday!
Consider coming back online after you eat. There are plenty of opportunities to earn after 9 pm!

We've been seeing a ton of demand during morning rush hour and not nearly enough cars. The result is a lot of surge pricing. If you want to make the most during the week you need to be on for Morning rush hour. We have been seeing partners make over $30 per hour from 6 am - 10 am.
- Make sure you are online before 7 am
- Try heading to Avenue / College area to start your day. It should take less than 5 minutes to receive your first request!
- Check the map below for tips on where to go!
