1.) London Bridge

One of the things that makes London Bridge so popular for Uber rides is that it rarely stops being busy throughout the week. Unlike some other places in London, which have distinct highs and lows, London Bridge has a strong blend of tourists and locals that work and go out here. That means that during the weekdays you’ll have working professionals looking to get around, and during the weekends you’ll have tourists, as well as Londoners that are out enjoying the nightlife.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 9am.

Friday & Saturday: 10pm to 2am.

 

2.) Soho

The Duke of Monmouth used to shout “Soho” before entering battles, and 50 years later it was being used as a name for one of the most popular areas in London. Soho is the home to nightclubs, theatres, business offices, restaurants, Chinatown and much more. This makes it an extremely vibrant and popular destination for people in London throughout the week. Whilst it can be a bit of a nightmare navigating these busy London streets, it’s definitely somewhere with plenty of jobs going.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 9am.

Friday & Saturday: 10pm to 2am.

Sunday: 9pm to 1am

 

3.) Liverpool Street Station

Liverpool Street Station was built in  1874. That’s over a century before Uber or Otto Car were even founded. Good luck getting a PCO Rent 2 Buy Scheme back then! Jokes aside this is an extremely busy area of London and doesn’t really die down throughout the week. A large part of this is because it’s a central hub for transport, with many people passing through from airports and other areas of the city. You’ll normally see plenty of Uber cars in the area, picking up or dropping off riders.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 1pm

Friday & Saturday: 10pm to 2am.

 

4.) Kings Cross Station

This is another area of London that can see you stuck in a lot of traffic, however if you play your cards right you could be onto a winner here. Kings Cross is not only an important station for connecting London to other cities around the UK, but with the Eurostar going out from here it is also a hub for people travelling to and from Europe. This means a lot of travellers arriving in the area. For Uber Drivers you might not find as much business during the weekend evenings, but during the week there will be plenty of people passing through this station.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 9am

 

5.) Brixton Road

Brixton is a place that has seen a huge transformation over the past few years. Now it’s a place with a thriving culture and a great nightlife, as well as a focal point for arts and music in London. Whilst it can get busy it’s not as hectic as some of the other places mentioned, so it could be a good spot to pick up some Uber rides without a lot of the stress that you might find around popular train stations in London.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 1pm

Friday & Saturday: 10pm to 2am.

 

6.) Kensington & Chelsea

We sent out a poll last year, asking PCO Drivers in the Otto Community to tell us where they prefer to work during the week. Kensington & Chelsea came out on top, with many drivers telling us that it is a good place to pick up high earning jobs. This could be because there are a lot of families here heading to the airport, and also it is an affluent area of London. Either way the roads are quite calm around that area, and you could pick up some lucrative jobs.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Friday: 5am to 5pm

 

 

7.) Paddington Station

Paddington is one of the busiest stations in the whole of London. There are a number of trains connected to different areas of the UK, which also means a number of train goers that are eager to get around. You can find a number of jobs here during weekdays and even Sunday too.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 1pm

Sunday: 9pm to 1am

 

8.) Victoria Station

Victoria Station is a great place for Uber drivers for the same reason as Paddington.  There are a lot of people passing through here on a daily basis. In fact, we could maybe go as far as to say it is perhaps the most well recognised station in the whole of London. Who doesn’t know Victoria after all? You might not want to find yourself here on a Saturday night, but it’s a great place for picking up people during the day.

Best times to drive here: 

Monday – Thursday: 5am to 1pm

Sunday: 9pm to 1am
