Uber announced that they will be shutting down their on-demand package delivery service, UberRUSH. The shutdown will happen in late June of this year in New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago. 

UberRUSH is Uber’s service where people can request deliveries for items they want delivered. The service was used by both individual customers and companies. 

Until June, Uber will be cutting down on the number of deliveries they make before completely shutting down the program. Uber states that they are using what they learned in UberRUSH to help make their other on-demand delivery services like UberEATS the best they can be. 

Personally, I forgot UberRUSH even existed, so it’s no surprise to me that the service is suspending operations. The service started in 2015 and was first used by restaurants to make deliveries. In 2017, Uber stated that they would no longer support restaurants delivering food through UberRUSH, and those companies instead should use UberEATS. 

UberEATS has generated enough interest to expand to 200 markets globally, whereas UberRUSH was not so popular. With the suspension of this service, Uber may start to invest more into expanding their on-demand food delivery service to even more markets. 

Get your food as easily as your Uber. Try Uber Eats.
