Mandatory breaks 

Under Prop 22, you’ll be required to take an uninterrupted 6-hour break if you drive a total of more than 12 hours of engaged time on the Roadie platform within any single 24-hour period. This is for your safety and the safety of others. 


What stays the same:

  • You can still choose which Gigs you want to offer on.

What’s new:

  • Once you’ve driven 12 hours of engaged time in a single 24-hour period, you’ll be unable to offer on any Gig which has a pickup time within the next 6 hours. If you do attempt to offer on a Gig during this rest period, your offer will not be considered for matching.

Mandatory Break FAQs:

How do you calculate the 12 hours of engaged time?

Your engaged time for any single-delivery Gig is estimated from the time you tap "Start Gig" and head to the pickup location until you tap "Complete Delivery", plus your actual wait time at pickup and dropoff. For multi-delivery Gigs, engaged time is estimated from the time you tap "Start Gig" and start driving to the first stop and ends when you tap "Complete Delivery" at the final stop. As with single-delivery Gigs, the actual time spent at each pickup and drop off location will be included in your pay. If your total engaged time reaches 12 hours in any given day, you must take a 6-hour break.
