A DoorDash driver in Washington, D.C. received a Panda Express order through the app for a customer located in New York City which was around 198.6 miles away from the store. The order consisted of three items for a drive payout of $10.25. The screenshot of the app was posted by user Lord Kaay on TikTok.
… Commenters pointed out that the pay was absurd given the drive time, gas and toll road fees. Some DoorDash drivers claimed to have had similar experiences where they were expected to travel to far-off destinations for low pay. Users also pointed out the randomness of the app’s order range, where they were not allowed to order from restaurants that were just 30 minutes away.
