We know it’s frustrating when you get a pick-up that’s far from you, and that the extra distance eats into your petrol costs. That’s why we’re introducing Far Pick-up Bonuses!
What’s a Far Pick-up bonus?
A Far Pick-up bonus is a $3 bonus awarded if your next trip meets the following requirements:
- Job was Auto Accepted
- Distance to pick up is more than 3KM (based on In-App Nav)
- Job is completed
Note: Your app version must be v5.34.0 (Android) or v1.21.0 (iOS) and above.
How will I know if a job has a Far Pick-up bonus?
If a job qualifies for the Far Pick-up bonus, the bonus will appear on the in-transit screen.
Note: This bonus will not be paid by the passenger, so please do not collect it as part of the passenger’s fare.
