DoorDash’s busiest times for delivery drivers depend on many things, like the traffic patterns in your area, the number of customers in your area, and anything else in your community that affects traffic or meal times. DoorDash deliveries are most popular during the lunch hour (11:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. on weekdays) and dinner time on weekends, according to most estimates (4:30 – 8:30pm). Pay for DoorDash lunch vs dinner hours depends on your schedule, your area, and if you can drive during these peak times.
1. Does DoorDash pay mileage?
