New Year's Eve

Drive Guide

This New Year’s Eve, we want to make sure you’re ready to take advantage of extra big earnings in Des Moines. Read our tips below to maximize your earnings and minimize your stress on the big night.

Highest earnings between 12am and 3am

On New Year’s Eve, you can earn big between 8pm and 4am. Requests might slow down between 10:30pm and 12am, so you can take time for yourself. But stay on the road for the highest fares between 12am and 3am as riders head home.

Know where to go

  • Demand for rides will pick up around 8pm and be spread out across the greater Des Moines area early in the night. Expect to see riders all over -- particularly Downtown, West Des Moines, and Windsor Heights.
  • As the night continues, demand will condense to heavily trafficked areas. During peak demand from 12am-3am, Downtown and West Des Moines will see sky high demand as riders look to get home safely.

We’re here to help

New Year’s Eve is a big night and we want to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible. For any questions or concerns, contact our in-app help or go to help.uber.com.
