Uber drivers in San Diego will soon be shuttling meals in addition to people. GeekWire says that the ride-hailing service intends to expand its UberEATS program, which has already deployed in cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City earlier this year. San Diego is part of the next wave, in addition to Seattle, Phoenix, Nashville, Philadelphia, and Miami, as indicated by new job listings posted on Uber's website, although a timeline for the local launch hasn't been revealed.
Meals are ordered via the "Meal" icon in the Uber app; UberEats works with local restaurants to offer a rotating menu every day; lunch plates usually range from $8 to $15, plus a set delivery fee. The food is promised to be delivered curbside within 10 minutes of ordering.
