No items left behind

Too much fun? We can help

If a rider makes a mess in your car, simply request a cleaning fee and we’ll help you out. You can also prevent wear and tear on your vehicle by bringing cleaning wipes or putting down mats. You never know what costumes you'll encounter!

Forward dispatch trips

During times of high demand, you may receive a new trip request before you are finished with your current trip.

No need to worry! Once you've accepted the new trip and finished the one you're on, the app will automatically navigate you to your next rider. This helps cut out downtime between trips so that you can spend more time earning.

New Year's Eve earnings

The biggest night of the year

  • We're expecting to see huge demand this New Year's Eve, especially in downtown Oklahoma City. This will be one of the best nights of the year to earn!
  • We're anticipating two big spikes in rider requests before and after midnight on New Year's Eve.
    • We typically see a dip in demand right around 11PM when riders have arrived at their destinations and are getting ready to watch the ball drop. This is a great time to fuel up with coffee and get ready for the post-midnight rush!
