Way back in April, we reported on Uber’s plans to move beyond cars and drivers-for-hire services with the launch of UberRUSH, which was essentially an experimental bicycle-based delivery service that launched in Manhattan, New York City.
“As of June 24, 2014, UberRUSH prices are up to 30% cheaper. If a delivery begins and ends within the same zone, it’s a flat $10. Each zone crossed during delivery is an additional $5. Additional stops may result in a higher fare.”
Additionally, messengers will not only collect items within Manhattan below 125th Street, they will also now deliver within Brooklyn or Queens for a flat-rate of $30. “We’re working to expand quickly, and will update you as coverage areas change,” the company says.
