    Hello fellow drivers

    I'm curious when you find the most profitable and least stressfull time to drive ? I usually start late afternoon/early evening and work until around midnight. I usually don't work weekends. I'd like to try mornings sometimes but I have other obligations. I just got accepted for Ubereats a couple of days ago but I haven't done any deliveries yet. What's the best day and time for Ubereats in your area? I'm in South Florida.
    Thanks

    Most profitable and least stressful are mutually exclusive.
     
  5. Start with rush hour drives.

    After 2 weeks of that, you will find that EVERYTHING is more profitable AND less stressful.

    It really depends on your preferences.

    I hate rush hour especially mornings so I don't do it.

    I have friends here that do it and clean up.

    To each his/her own.

  8. Drive them ALL.

    DRIVE THEM ALL FOR 48 HOURS STRAIGHT.

    Because
    Each market is different.
    So you must learn for yourself.

    Uber strategy is same when drive. It’s same issues worldwide. Uber is 24/7 operation with independence. Every individual has his own expectation and understanding. That is up to you to decide. Think, drive and read forum. Anylize. Good luck!!!!

    Experiment and find what works for you in your area.

    And find out when large conventions will be in town. Add major sporting events too.

    With the sports, estimate when people will be leaving. There are *always* people leaving early.

    I drove for a couple recently, who left a close playoff game very early. Seems they had "problems with their tickets." They tipped in the app right away too.

    The reason you want to drive people FROM sporting events is that they're all leaving from the same place. So go there, assuming it's not 30 or 50 miles from your house.

    Thank you.

    So far late afternoons, evenings and nights have been working well. It's steady and I hit surge pricing sometimes.
    There are nights when I can't work but I still have a goal to meet. I live near a few venues for sports and concerts. Thanks for the advice.

    Doing uber/Lyft is never be good money. Because it’s old for the public. Raising prices will cut demand. Same problem will be forever. Time to find something better!!!!

    Generally the least stressful will be the least profitable and the most stressful will be the most profitable.

    Early AM in my market. I start at 4AM for airport runs and do 4-8 of those by 10AM.
