This Week On uberX
PLEASE NOTE THIS ONLY APPLIES TO UBER DRIVERS IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Hope you had a great week! Earnings were highest on Saturday between 5:30-7:30pm and 11pm-1am. Many partners made over $40/hr during these hours due to SURGE trips.
It’s also been busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as weekday mornings.
Quality was also great last week. We’ve produced a new page to check out how you can improve if your rating is below 4.6. See here.
One important note: Every Uber driver partner is expected to accept service animals in their cars. It is Uber’s policy that any driver partner that refuses to transport a service animal will be deactivated from the Uber platform.
Don’t forget about our minimum fare guarantee of $24/hr during weekday mornings. See below for more :)
Also, remember you can refer your friends and family members and earn $100 for each person. See below for more. Top referrers have earned over $1500 by referring friends and family!!
As always, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drive safe, & have a great week!

PROTIP: 5 STAR SERVICE
It is incredibly important every rider experiences a 5 star ride. As discussed at onboarding, every Uber has bottles of water and mints in the car.
The most common complaints from riders include:
- Drivers not using a phone cradle (these are cheap and readily available)
- Drivers not opening doors for riders at the start and end of the trip
- No water and mints in the car
- Drivers picking up wrong riders
- Drivers not cancelling trips correctly
- If you need to cancel a trip, it is important you do NOT press begin trip and then end trip as this overcharges the rider and results in a 1 star rating! Please CLICK HERE for more information on how to cancel a trip correctly. Drivers doing the wrong thing and overcharging riders face potential suspension from Uber.
If your star rating has been dropping, here are some tips on how to get 5 stars!!
A formal quality process is already in place. Drivers with low quality scores will be contacted by Uber management.
Feel free to shoot us an email if you have any questions.
SERVICE ZONE & BEST LOCATIONS
Top earners position themselves in the following areas, at the right times:
- Mt. Lawley
- City Beach
Remember: Your location defines how many rides you get. Be smart about your location and keep in mind your car’s radius when positioning yourself.
$100 REFERRAL BONUS!
Know friends in Perth that meet all the requirements for uberX and want to drive? Well then you’re sitting on a goldmine! As long as your referral brings all their required documents to onboarding (driver’s licence, upgraded vehicle registration, vehicle insurance & proof of F or T extension), you will get a $100 referral bonus & the new driver will also receive a $100 sign up bonus!
Make sure your referral inputs your code when they sign up: Click here for more information. This is an automated process, unfortunately we are unable to manually add referral bonuses if your referral forgets to push your code in when they sign up.
Please note this only applies to partners who register a car with Uber. The referral will be paid out once 20 trips have been completed.
If you have any questions, feel free to visit help.uber.com.
We’re looking forward to seeing you online!
Sam, Fletch, Jackson and the Uber Perth Team
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
