Eats Welcome

How Delivery Trips Work

  1. When you receive a request, the top of your screen will say "Delivery" to indicate that it is an uberEATS trip. You can accept the delivery trip by tapping the screen.
  2. Tap "Navigate," and the app will direct you to the pickup location.
  3. When you arrive at the pickup, go inside and show a restaurant staff member the app. That will tell them which order to pickup. Bags are not required in San Diego.

  4. Tap “Verify Items” in the app to ensure that you've picked up the correct items.
  5. Once you are back in your vehicle with your items, slide "Start Trip" and click "navigate." The app will direct you to the dropoff location, just like a normal trip.
  6. When you arrive at the dropoff location, the requester will meet you curbside. Once you have delivered their food, just swipe to end the trip!

Don't have a bag? No problem, a bag is not required to make deliveries with Uber.
