Make money on your schedule

Discover how block scheduling works, and how you can use it to make more money when you want to.


Grubhub’s block scheduling

allows you to reserve time-slots for when you want to deliver. This helps us ensure that we don’t have too many drivers on the road, and that you’ll get deliveries.

Here’s a few tips to make block scheduling work best for you.

*If there is no plus sign next to a block, it is not available.

Make sure to only pick blocks that you know you can deliver. If something changes, and you’re unable to work a block that you scheduled, drop it as soon as can so other drivers have the opportunity to pick up the block.

If you regularly drop blocks within 72 hours of the block start time, we may restrict your access to scheduling—so make sure to only drop blocks when it’s absolutely necessary.

Grubhub Drivers do not have a set schedule. Drivers are able to schedule their own blocks in advance and make money when they want to.

The length of scheduled blocks varies based on your specific market. Blocks are available on a first come, first served basis, based on your Recognition program level.

Yes, you can deliver with Grubhub without being on a scheduled block. When you’re ready to drive, just toggle to “Taking offers” to let Grubhub know that you’re available to accept offers.
