Frequently asked questions
- What does delivering using Uber offer that traditional delivery driver jobs don’t?
Different delivery driver jobs offer different opportunities. Not all food delivery drivers are able to work flexible hours whenever they choose. You can decide whether you want a traditional full-time or part-time delivery driver job or courier job, or whether you want to be an independent contractor using the Uber Eats app whenever and wherever you want—or even do both.
- Can I deliver using the Uber Eats app and also be a food delivery driver for a restaurant or another delivery app?
Yes. You can keep doing food delivery jobs, courier jobs, or delivery with other apps and also get paid to deliver using Uber Eats in your free time with your own vehicle. Whether you deliver using a car, bike, or your feet; whether you’re a catering driver, taxi driver, or truck driver, or you drive using another rideshare app, or any other food delivery service worldwide—we welcome you to the Uber platform.
