It all comes down to this. On Sunday, 2 teams, one from New England and the other from Los Angeles, will compete for football’s biggest trophy.

Whether you drive in one of those areas or near a town that didn’t sniff the playoffs, sports fans will be packing bars and heading to parties. So even if you just watch the Big Game for the commercials, you have the chance to make some big bucks.

Here are a few tips to help you have a great Sunday:

Trips will likely spike before and after the game*

Once the ball is kicked, fans tend to stay put. We expect heavier ride requests in the hours before 6:30pm EST and after the final whistle, about 10pm EST.

Driving near sports bars can potentially help you find more trips

Your local favorites are likely to have one of their busiest days. While driving, you can keep an eye out for real-time app updates on where to find more trips and let the app guide you there if you choose.

Gain peace of mind on the road

Our riders appreciate you getting them home safely, but your safety is important as well. Safety features such as 24/7 customer support and an emergency assistance button can help you drive with more confidence.

For sports fans, the day of the Big Game is often full of guacamole and chicken wings. But for you, especially with a little extra planning, it can be a day full of earnings.
