We’ve given Rocket Rates a new look in-app! We’ve added shading to Rocket Zones in the map to help you locate where in the city fares are higher.
Tap on the zones to see the range of Rocket Rates that apply. You’ll still be able to see the exact Rocket Rate in each Flex offer.
What are Rocket Rates and Rocket Zones?
Rocket Rates are fare multipliers that apply to pickups in specific zones known as Rocket Zones. Rocket Zones show where fares are higher. Rocket rates apply based on pickup location, not where you confirmed the ride. If you make pickups in a Rocket Zone, your fare will be multiplied by the specified Rocket Rate until your rider is dropped off. Remember, Rocket Rates apply to Flex rides only.
I only see a few Rocket Rate ranges now, how can I find more?
Now, you’ll see a few of our top Rocket Rates when you open the app, but if you tap on a shaded section, you’ll see the ranges for Rocket Rates in any Zone.
How will I know which rate I’ll get when I see a range for Rocket Rates?
If a Rocket Rate applies, you’ll see the exact Rocket Rate reflected in the ride offer you receive in Flex mode. For example, if you see 1.4x-1.8x in-app, the next time you receive a ride offer for a pickup in that Rocket Zone, you’ll see the exact rate applied in the ride proposal before you confirm the ride.
