Kim and I have used UberEats a few times but find it quite limited since you can only order from certain restaurants and only at limited times.
When you order food with UberEats, it’s delivered by a driver in around 30 minutes. Now Uber is testing a new way to get orders delivered faster.
GrubStreet reports that, “UberEats, the world’s largest food-delivery platform — has begun a new trial program in San Diego.” Uber wants a speedier way to make deliveries. The orders could arrive from 5 minutes from now to 30 minutes”, according to CEO Dara Khsrowshahi.
Khsrowshahi says that the 5 minute wait time is an estimate for those done with drones, while 30 minutes is what’s expected for deliveries done by people.
I’d love to have food delivered by a drone. I just wonder if they could deliver to the second floor so we don’t have to come downstairs.
