Uber New Years Eve Surge Times
Using Uber on New Year’s Eve Guide
Planning on using Uber on New Year’s Eve? Curious about when Uber’s surge prices & passenger demand will be highest this New Year’s Eve?
The answer is: between 11.30pm and 3.15am.
Uber is expected to deliver more than 15 million trips this New Year’s Eve (2017), so fares may be particularly high as people leave their festivities and head home for the evening.
Benefits of Using Uber on New Year’s Eve
Since Uber provides on-demand rides at ANY time of night (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), it allows New Year’s revelers to imbibe at parties and travel around at leisure, without the worry of driving, parking or dealing with the inconvenience of traffic congestion.
For New Uber Riders
Costs will be automatically deducted from your credit or debit card (which is directly connected to your Uber account)

Upfront Fares on New Year’s Eve
Since 2016, Uber has rolled out a new feature called Upfront Fares, which will give most Uber passengers on New Years Eve a clear picture of the cost of their ride before they step into their vehicle.
Make sure you get in the right vehicle (and use UberSPOT if available)
For Uber drivers & passengers, New Year’s Eve will be a particularly busy night — so it is important that you find your correct driver & step into your awaiting car with the right driver.
It’s always worth double-checking your driver’s car model and license plate in the app before you hop in your ride.
Share your trip details
On a busy New Year’s Eve, it’s best to keep in contact with your family and friends – luckily, you can share your real-time Uber information & location via the Uber App with programs like ShareMyETA and SafetyNet.
