Some Postmates couriers believe it is a good idea to follow the red zones and others think its senseless. red zones are the red squares on your Postmates fleet app. If the area is really busy you will see a full-color red square in that location. If a square is a dull red that indicates the location is active but not that busy. If you come across a very transparent red it means there’s a few request for Postmates here and there. *Use the San Francisco screenshot below for a better reference as to what I mean .

When you are given your onboard session you are told that the dark full colored red squares will get you the most jobs. I have found this to be true. When I go towards the full red hotspots within 10 minutes I may receive 2-3 requests. After you finish the delivery you’ll get more requests so i personally follow Postmates recommendations. I am also in a busy market. There are others though that simply suggest that it doesn’t really matter whether you are in the hot spots or not because you get the same amount of requests either way. It may be because of their market it may not. I don’t know. From my personal experience, I have seen an increase in requests by following the hot spots. I do like some Postmates couriers suggestion of staying near a restaurant that is well liked in your city and is busy. I find Starbucks is typically busy in the morning and Chipotle is typically busy during the lunch hour.
