Hitting the road to make that dough on New Year's Eve? Here are some tips to make the most of your time in driver mode.
1. Drive smart hours.
We expect the busiest times to be from 7 - 10 p.m., and again from 1 - 3 a.m., so be sure to take your breaks before, after, or in between those times.
2. Head to the hot zones.
Go where the nightlife goes. Generally, areas that are busy on Friday and Saturday nights are going to be booming on New Year's Eve. It's also a good idea to do a quick Google search before the big night to see where the most popular celebrations are happening. Utilize the in-app heat maps and head to areas with the most requests.
3. Drive safely.
This seems obvious, but it's especially important to take precautions when driving on busy holidays. Check out these pieces of fatherly driving advice as a refresher.
4. Get the celebration started.
This is the perfect opportunity to give your passengers that extra special experience. Head to your local dollar store and scoop up some party favors. Think party hats, funky New Year's glasses, and fun candy (maybe some throwback snacks). Definitely pick up a few confetti poppers if you'll be in driver mode when the ball drops.
5. Stay cool.
Remember to have fun, be patient with traffic and crowds, and celebrate a new year of good things to come.
