Good news for Uber users living in the Santa Monica, CA area: Uber is drafting a lunch run service through September 5. This supplemental test service, uberFRESH, is pretty straightforward and hopefully will be something permanent and expansive.
To use, you simply select the uberFRESH tab at the bottom of the screen. The option will be available from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., but will unfortunately exclude this Labor Day weekend. You choose your lunch of the day and the location of delivery. Instead of the driver going up to your doorstep or business suite entrance, you meet your driver outside to pick up your meal.
The menu differs everyday, but the price will consistently be $12. I know it’s a bit steep for lunch, but the delivery boasts no more than a 10-minute wait. You also get a complimentary pretzel cookie.
