Drivers and delivery people are required to schedule an appointment in advance if they want to visit a Greenlight location. If you have an offer to receive masks or other health and safety supplies, please arrive during distribution hours.

  • Different delivery driver jobs here offer different advantages. With some courier jobs, a person might be required to work certain hours on a rigid schedule and have previous delivery experience. With Uber, no previous experience as a courier is required, and you can decide whether you want to drive full-time hours, part-time hours, or just a few hours when it fits your schedule.

  • No. With Uber, you can get paid to deliver as little or as much as you want. You have the flexibility to be a food delivery driver in Los Angeles whenever you choose.

  • It’s easy to track your earnings from deliveries. A monetary amount at the top of your app screen will show how much you’re getting paid to deliver in Los Angeles. Look for tools in the Driver app to give you more details.

  • When you become a delivery driver in Los Angeles with Uber, you must be at least 19 years old (unless you’re delivering by bike or foot) and have an eligible mode of transportation.

And you need to pass a background screening.
