No one in the Big Smoke ever needs to dine out again. A tech company just gave everyone in the city a reason to stay in this week. UberEATS Sydney has officially launched online.
Dining out in Sydney, or any major city for that matter, could often be a hassle. Some restaurants don’t allow bookings. Others have less than fair policies for queueing. Getting to restaurant in itself takes too much work, as well.
Thankfully, Uber, the mobile app responsible for getting you a ride home when you’re late for work or you’ve way too much to drink, has the perfect solution. The ride-sharing company has previously enlisted the help of some of their drivers to double as food delivery partners in several cities in the States. And now, Uber has brought this new service to a major city Down Under.
The company has partnered up with Sydney’s very best restaurants. You never have to leave the house for Fratelli Fresh, Sake, Butter and Thievery, and even Three Blue Ducks. UberEATS Sydney will bring all the food you’re craving to you after just a few swipes on your phone.
The service has a cut-off, though. Currently, UberEATS only delivers from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. According to Gizmodo Australia, the app can service everyone from Bondi and Pyrmont to Surry Hills and Newtown. Delivery partners operate seven days a week.
Sydney residents can access the service through the Uber app. Anyone with an existing account with Uber can avail of this delivery service. Sydney residents without an account of their own can still have their food delivered through the app, though. They only need to make an account of their own.
Since UberEATS Sydney just launched this week, patrons would not be charged a delivery fee. The app also allows customers to track their food while it’s being picked up and delivered to them.
