Where can I drive?

Service area

The Uber app works 24/7 throughout the Byron Bay service area. This means that you can drive anywhere in the service area, shown at left, and still be able to accept trip requests.


  • Weekend evenings are busy around Byron Bay, Kingscliff, and Tweed Heads from 4pm - Late
  • Sunday daytime tends to be busy around Byron Bay and Ballina, as holiday-makers head to and from the airport or enjoy a day in town
  • Weekday evenings 4pm - 8pm are humming around Byron Bay and Tweed Heads as riders head home from work or out to enjoy the evening


As a driver-partner with NSW accreditation, you can drive anywhere in NSW where Uber operates. This includes Sydney, Newcastle, Byron Bay, and Wollongong...and growing!
