UberEATS - Bicycle
UberEATS is a food delivery platform that allows eaters in your city to order food from a restaurant at the push of a button and have it delivered to their door by an Uber delivery partner.
The UberEATS trip starts with a hungry person who orders food from a restaurant using the UberEATS app. When the restaurant has received the request, they will start to prepare the order.
- Only when the order is READY will a courier be requested to pick the order up from the restaurant.
- Once you pick the order up from the restaurant you will be directed to the eater’s location to give them the order.
What are the keys to success on UberEATS?
UberEATS is a food delivery platform which means high quality service involves:
- Completing the trip in the shortest amount of time; and
- Ensuring the meal is not damaged and is at the same temperature it was at when the restaurant handed it over
1. Completing a trip quickly
Use the pick up instructions in the app to find the best place to park / wait at the restaurant
The ONLY way you can find these is if you use UBER MAPS (if you use Google Maps or WAZE then you will have to click back into the Uber app to find the pick up instructions)
Once you have received the food from the restaurant, make your way to the eater’s location using the most efficient route. When you reach the eater’s location, we suggest that you park your bicycle and hand over the order at the eater’s door (so long as parking and security allows you to reach the eater’s door!). If you cannot reach the eater’s door, you can give them a call through the Uber app to coordinate the pick-up.
2. Delivering a tasty meal
Uber has provided you with an insulated food delivery bag – make sure you have this with you at all times! The insulated food delivery backpack ensures two things:
- The food temperature is maintained; and
- Avoids spillage
What to remember being going online?
Make sure you wear a helmet and have your insulated food delivery backpack strapped firmly to your back, as shown in the image.

How to complete an UberEATS trip?
When you receive an UberEATS trip request, the screen will say “UBEREATS” at the top:
1. RECEIVING AN UBEREATS TRIP REQUEST
When you accept an UberEATS trip request, you will be directed towards the restaurant to pick up the food.
When you arrive at the restaurant you will see the pick up instructions* that guide you to the best place to wait.
*Please note: These pick up instructions are only visible when you are in the Uber app (important if you are using an alternative navigation provider such as Google Maps).
2. NAVIGATION USING GOOGLE MAPS
Delivery partners have recommended using Google Maps for bicycle deliveries. To set it up for yourself, follow these instructions:
