Drive smart, earn more

Introducing Boost

We're excited to introduce Boost—a new feature in your app that will help you earn.

When you get a Boost, your trip's fare will multiply and you will earn more. Boosts exist in different zones across the city, so how much of a Boost you get will depend on when and where you drive.

Boost vs. Surge

  • Both Boost and surge will multiply your fare and help you earn more.
  • Surge is shown on the map in your app. It can change quickly depending on how much demand is in the area.
  • Boosts are set in advance and available for longer periods of time. You can check the Promotions section of your app to see when and where Boosts are going to be available days before you drive.
  • When both surge and Boost are happening in the same area, you'll receive whichever is highest.

Boost zones

What is a zone?

The GTA is split into different zones to help you know where and when to drive. Each zone will multiply your fare by a different guaranteed amount, called a Boost. So 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 the Boosts are before you drive by checking the Promotions Hub in your app.
