UberRush goes live in New York, Chicago, San Francisco
Still, by opening the UberRush API to developers, Uber has taken the first step towards expanding its courier service. Companies can now add on-demand delivery services to their apps with just a few lines of code. Companies like Nordstrom and 1800flowers have been using the program since January, and Uber says more partnerships are on the way, including Dryv, a Chicago-based dry cleaning delivery service and Up Sonder – a company rents on-demand drones to aerial photographers.
If UberRush does well in its starting cities, it's likely that the company will expand the program to other towns with active Uber drivers – which means we're all one step closer to never having to leave home again.
