Boost

A new way to earn

Boost is a new way for partners to earn. While delivering with UberEATS, your fares will multiply when you get a Boost. Learn all about Boosts below.

Drive smart, earn more

Introducing Boost

We're excited to introduce Boost — a new feature in your app that will help you earn. When you get a Boost, your trip's fare will multiply and you will earn more. Boosts exist in different zones across the city, so how much of a Boost you get will depend on when and where you drive.

Boost vs. Hourly Guarantees

  • Both boost and surge will increase your fare, but boosts are a multiplier on every trip.
  • You are able to see where Boosts zones are in real time.
  • There is no opt in required for Boost - just drive in the boost zone and earn more.

The Promotions section of your app show current and future Boosts. You can see the date, time and zone of each Boost before it happens.

Notifications

Before you go online, check any in-app messages or emails that show you exactly when and where the Boost zones are.

Check Your Map

You can see the Boosts all around Denver inside your app. Plan to be there or head over if you're already online.

Denver Boost Zones

What is a zone?

Denver is split into different zones to help you know where and when to drive. Each zone will multiply your fare by a different guaranteed amount, called a Boost. So when you pick up a rider, you will receive the Boost for that zone.

Find the zones in your app

In your app, there is a Live Map that shows the current Boosts for each zone. The amounts will change based on the time of day and day of the week, to show you when it's busiest. You can see what the Boosts are before you drive by checking the Promotions Hub in your app.
