Guaranteed fare multipliers
Our most common and popular driver promotion, Boost is our first earnings offer to be integrated directly in the Uber Driver app.
With Boost, you will receive a guaranteed fare multiplier for all trips completed during a certain time and within a certain area.
If the Surge multiple is greater than the Boost amount, you will always receive the higher multiplier!
You can always see what offers are available by visiting the Promotions Hub in your app. The Promotions Hub can be accessed under the "Earnings" tab.

Boost vs. Surge
With Boost, you'll always get the higher option. If Boost is more than Surge, we'll top you up so you receive the Boost amount. If the current Surge multiple is higher than the Boost, you'll receive the Surge multiple instead.
Where to drive
What is a zone?
The San Francisco Bay Area is split into different zones to help you know where and when to drive. Each zone will contain a different fare multiplier amount, called a Boost. 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 Boosts you are eligible for before you drive by checking the Promotions Hub in your app.
