Uber is best known for its ride-hailing service. If you need a ride, just open the Uber app and select where you want to go. An Uber driver nearby will accept your ride and take you where you want to go. However, Uber is also running a food-delivery business in several markets across the globe. It turns out, the food business has actually overtaken the ride-hailing business in some markets.
While food delivery services aren’t new, the addition of UberEATS means that we have so many more options to choose from, and sometimes it can be overwhelming when you open the app and find yourself faced with an impossible choice, then there is also a problem of whether or not a restaurant could be good.
Uber is much more than the company that runs a platform which connects riders with drivers.

Uber has confirmed that it has shut down the Instant Delivery service in New York City. It’s an UberEats feature that provides users with a list of selected lunch items that can be delivered to them in ten minutes or less. Instant Delivery was available to NYC residents since last year but clearly the response wasn’t good enough to convince Uber to not axe this service for NYC.
