Uber also connects you to these ways to earn:

Popular locations and times:
The beauty of Uber is that you can go online whenever you want. However, there are periods where demand is greater.
- Friday and Saturday night
- 6:00am to 10:00 am on weekdays: morning rush hours when riders heading to work.
- 4:00pm to 10:00pm on weekdays: late afternoon rush hour. During the week riders are often looking to head home from work and on the weekend they are often heading into the CBD from home.
During times of high demand, fares may increase to make sure those who need a ride can get one.
For riders, this helps ensure that pickup is available quickly and reliably. For driver-partners, it means higher fares and a steady stream of ride requests.
When you're online, your app displays areas with high demand for rides in shades of red. The deeper the shade of red, the greater that area's demand.
