I was searching for something completely different, ran into this page.

Uber Connect is an easy, same-day, no-contact delivery solution that allows people to send items whether it’s a care package for a loved one, a gift for a friend’s birthday, an item you sold online or an important business document.

Looks pretty awesome?  Is this really a thing?  The page completely useless as I can't proceed from there.

    that whole bit about being a "technology company" instead of a "transportation company."  

    Well, that dream died with the covid pandemic.

    This has been a service for quite a while now. I think in some locations it is called Uber Direct.

      Uber Connect use to be the referral service for Uber, I think. Connecting people to people and businesses to people.  I guess they rebranded it. M

      They also call things differently in different countries. So maybe it’s that?  I don’t see how you’d use this delivery service though.

      It is supposed be in the same app?

    This is Uber's end goal, right? They wanted to be more than a taxi company, so they were gonna take over the courier/delivery industry.  Remember the Uber Airport thing with drones?
