The Uber app works right across Toowoomba and the surrounding areas, stretching inland to Dalby, south to Warwick and east to Gatton. You can check the full service area here.
You are welcome to go online anywhere within the service area, however, there are some areas that are typically busier than others. To increase your chance of receiving regular trip requests we suggest that you go online in the busier areas.
In and around the Toowoomba CBD is generally the best area to situate yourself to increase your chance of receiving trip requests. We recommend heading to where locals and tourists are often located; around Margaret and Ruthven Streets, shopping centers, hotels, restaurants, bars, USQ campus and the Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport.
Driver-partners based in Toowoomba are also able to drive in any other Queensland city where Uber operates; including Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Cairns. You can simply go online as you normally would.
Driver-partners are able to go online 24/7 however, most driver-partners can increase their fares by driving during busier times, particularly during peak hours and on weekends.
In Toowoomba, trips request occur right across the week, however, the busiest times are typically on the weekends. In particular between 5 pm - 2 am on Friday and Saturday nights.
We recommend keeping up to date with local events as often when there are locals and tourists heading to or from an event ride requests will be in high demand. Some major events will be communicated through your Driver App or in newsletters, so be sure to keep an eye out!
