New's Years Eve Tips

Little things go a long way

Make sure to grab all of your favorite driving treats before hitting the road. Water, phone chargers, and gum are always crowdpleasers.

What they're saying...

"I also keep water, mints and small bags of pretzels available for anyone who wants them."

-Robin, Salt Lake City

"Make sure to have a couple cases of water also have something with carbohydrates and sugar. A good hangover kit goes over well too. That was a big hit for me last year."

-Brian, Salt Lake City

"Water is a life saver for those that have had a bit too much to drink."

-Sarah, Salt Lake City

Make sure you confirm with your rider

Things can get hectic out there so make sure you have your trade dress displayed and don't be afraid to call your rider to game plan the pickup.

What they're saying...

"With pickups, make sure you confirm you have the correct rider(s)."

-Jordan, Salt Lake City

"People get caught up in celebration. Call them after one minute to ensure you stay on the road and complete trips quickly."

-Keith, Salt Lake City

Rest up before the big night

With all of the traffic and celebration, it's important to stay focused and alert at all times. You may receive lots of back-to-back trips, so don't be alarmed if you get requests before your trips end.

What they're saying...

"Get plenty of rest before going out. It helps with your attitude and friendliness."

-Michael, Salt Lake City

"Get some rest before the night begins because you will stay busy until the sun comes up. Make sure you are well rested and prepared for that."

-Sarah, Salt Lake City

Be festive and enjoy yourself

New Year's Eve is a night of celebration. Don't be afraid to have fun with your riders and create an enjoyable atmosphere. Throw on your favorite Pandora station and ring in the New Year in style!

What they're saying...

"I keep the atmosphere in my car festive. And it's really important to maintain a great sense of humor. The reason I'm there is to provide a safe, pleasant trip home for my passengers, so I try to make them feel as comfortable as possible. "

-Robin, Salt Lake City

"An aux cord and some sweet tunes will set you up for a great experience your riders will love."

-Brian, Salt Lake City
