Sydney Events this Weekend

30 January – 1 February 2015

The weekend is here – the SUN is out – that means one thing – Friday & Saturday night will both be HUGE on the Uber platform!

If you like making $$$’s, clear your schedule and come online with Uber.

Weather: Friday night is forecast to be dry = many riders will be heading out. Saturday should be a scorcher, meaning plenty of Sydneysiders will be wanting to get to the beach and harbourside throughout the day. It will also mean by sun down, beachside areas such as Bondi and Manly will be bustling with riders.
