Uber Updates App To Show The Difference Between Hailing A Ride And Ordering Lunch

UberEATS-menu-Godmother-1024x683Following a bit of consumer confusion related to rolling its ride-hailing and food ordering options into the same app back in June, Uber has finally pushed out an update aiming to ensure people looking for a ride don’t order a sandwich instead. Along with now prominently displaying separate buttons for requesting a ride and ordering via UberEATS, the update includes an expansion of the food delivery service to San Francisco.

The service – already available in New York City, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, Toronto and Barcelona – delivers customers their choice of meals from a specially curated and rotating menu that features “local flavors that you crave the most” from the “most popular, iconic restaurants.” Ordering is available during lunch and dinner depending on the location.
