FAQs

What is FarePilot?

FarePilot is a service that puts Drivers First. How we do that is by providing you with different ways of making more money and saving more money.

By going to the hotspots shown within FarePilot, you will be able to get more jobs, spend less time driving and beat the crowd.

What’s in the app?

We currently have the following services;
- Hotspots
- Save Money

What are Hotspots?

With our Hotspots feature, we direct you to areas with more people potentially looking for rides.

How do we come up with these Hotspots?

Our app uses live information, as well as historical information about where the busiest places are, along with some clever maths.

This allows us to predict where people looking for a ride might be and therefore the best places for you to get more job nearby.

How long should I wait at a Hotspot?

We suggest waiting up to 15mins. If you don’t get a job, try another of our hotspots.

What is Save Money?

With our Save Money feature, we provide you with offers to help save money on your current spend. This includes everything that is involved for your driving needs and more.

How does the Save Money feature work?

When you first use Save Money, you will be asked to fill in an expenses survey which we will then use to tailor offers to your needs. Once you’ve completed the survey you will see our current offers.

Are you an Uber competitor?

We're not a competitor of any Ridesharing Company. We are an independent company.

Our app should however be used at the same time as your driver / partner app.

How do you help me make more money?

By shortening the time between jobs, we help you make more money in a shorter period of time. This means you can earn more in a shift or shorten your shifts and still earn the same amount.

Since you will still be using Uber or Lyft to get pings, they will still be responsible for your payment.

FarePilot is an add on service that you use at the same time as Uber or Lyft to help you find customers more quickly.

How can I get it?

FarePilot is currently available to download for IOS and Android download now.

Where does our app currently work?

We’re currently available in London and LA.

Can you help me setup an account with Uber?

Whilst we provide a service that can helps drivers, we are not connected with Uber. You will need to contact them directly.

Does it work with UberEats, UberExec or UberLux?

Our system is currently only optimised for UberX and UberXL, so if you only work as any of the above, you may find that the app might not be as accurate.

Do you just work with Uber Drivers?

We are an independent company and our app will work with any system like Uber. FarePilot should be used at the same time as your driver app to help you increase the chances of getting jobs.
