UberEATS set to launch in Vancouver ‘in a few weeks’

Still no word on when regular Uber service will be available in the city


Vancouverites are soon going to have one more food delivery service at their fingertips.

UberEATS — the food delivery wing of the popular American ridesharing giant — is set to launch in Vancouver.

According to the Vancouver Sun, the food delivery service is set to launch “in a few weeks.”

“UberEats would bring a convenient and reliable way for people in Vancouver to get the food they love at Uber speed, open up new economic opportunities for delivery partners to use their vehicles or bikes to earn, and enable local businesses to connect with more customers,” said Dan Park, Canada’s UberEATS general manager, in a statement to the Vancouver Sun.

Uber will reportedly be hosting learning sessions for anyone interested in working as an UberEATS driver. The sessions will be hosted at the Hampton Inn at Downtown Vancouver’s Robson Street next week.

While UberEATS is gearing up for a city-wide launch, there’s still no word on when Vancouverites will be able to access Uber’s taxi services.

UberEATS first launched in Canada in 2015, in Toronto. Since then, the service has expanded into Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa, Edmonton, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, and London.
