Dashers sign up to dash in a specific starting point. Sometimes, dashers may be moved to neighboring starting points if additional dashers are needed there. As of March 2018, there are 3 starting points: Downtown Richmond, West End, and Short Pump. We'll be expanding into Midlothian on 4/18.
Within a starting point we have set up various hotspots. Hotspots are located on where DoorDash expects orders to be placed. Dashers are more likely to receive an order if they are closer to the restaurant from which a customer orders. The app will direct you to the closest hotspot between orders.
To the right, you can see where these starting points are.
