UberX Perth – Australia Day



Hi uberX!

There will be special incentives for Australia Day this Monday, 26th January. We are expecting very high demand throughout the whole day and into the night! Please see below for the Australia day incentive, as well as additional information to help you maximise your earning potential!


On Australia Day (Monday, 26th January) we are guaranteeing an average gross fare during the hours listed below.

$20/trip from 10:00-22:00 : $25/trip if you’re online 10+ hrs


  • 90% acceptance rate in the service zone.

Example Payment 1: Uber Partner A works 11 hours between 10:00-22:00, completes 13 trips and makes $275 in fares. They also meet the conditions listed above. Uber’s guarantee: 13 x $25/trip = $325 in gross fares. Incentive payout: ($325 – $275) x 80% = $40.

Example Payment 2: Uber Partner B works 6 hours between 10:00-22:00, completes 8 trips and makes $140 in fares. They also meet the conditions listed above. Uber’s guarantee: 8 x $20/trip = $160 in gross fares. Incentive payout: ($160 – $140) x 80% = $16.

Example Payment 3 Uber Partner C works 10.5 hours between 10:00-22:00, completes 12 trips and makes $330 in fares. They also meet the conditions listed above. Uber’s guarantee: 12 x $25/trip = $300 in gross fares. Since the partner earned more in fares than the Uber guarantee, no Uber top-up is required… well done!


Australia Day’s demand will be focused around the events on the river foreshore. Earlier in the day we expect demand to be highest in the service area (CBD and Coastal Suburbs, shown below). In the evening (after 8:30pm) we expect demand to be high around the city and South Perth foreshore.  Your earnings will be highest if you are positioned in these areas.

Many parts of the city and south will be closed to traffic due to the foreshore festivities. If you find yourself stuck in traffic on the way to pick up a rider, please call them to let them know. You might be able to work out a better place to meet! Please see the below map for road closures. Click here for more. Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.06.46 pm
