No ride, Uber, just dinner, please

NEW YORK CITY — Rideshare company Uber plans to launch a food delivery service in New York City. The company has expanded in select cities from simply offering rides to delivering dinner.

UberEATS has been successfully launched in Los Angeles and Barcelona. The company now will offer the service in New York City and Chicago. It touts a 10-minute average delivery time in Los Angeles, but has yet not made that claim for its new markets.

Drivers will tool around the city, specifically between 14th Street and 40th Street in Manhattan, with a selection of curated meals that will change daily. Customers can order some chow from their Uber app. Each item will be priced accordingly, and a $4 per delivery charge will be added.
