Uber Plans to Test Food Delivery by Drone

Uber Plans to Test Food Delivery by Drone

Uber planned to deliver food by drone in San Diego in a test program approved by the federal government.

Key findings

In 2018, Uber was the largest food delivery business in the world, with delivery taking between five and thirty minutes depending on the delivery method - by drone or by human.

"The U.S. Transportation Department said it chose 10 state, local and tribal governments and a handful of companies, including Alphabet Inc., FedEx Corp., Intel Corp., Qualcomm Inc. and Uber, to work together on commercial drone testing."

Uber's CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, said Uber has to be about mobility, not just cars. This came in a statement regarding Uber's other mobility programs including electric bikes and flying cars.
