In an effort to cater to all of our first world problems, rebellious ridesharing service Uber are launching UberRUSH, an on-demand delivery system that uses bike and on-foot couriers to get your belongings and online orders from point A to point B.
First launched in 2014, Uber’s Rush Trial let users hail a courier from a company’s app and track the approaching messenger. The perfect example is a NYC reporter who had a raincoat she forgot at a meeting picked up and dropped to her within 20 minutes for $11.
Now, Uber is partnering with local business with an aim to “get customers pretty much anything in minutes.” Businesses around Chicago, NYC and San Francisco can make faster, cheaper and more reliable deliveries to their customers. From fast food to fashion, it sounds a bit like Menulog and Want It Now combined.
