Foodies, rejoice: Uber Eats is coming to Pakistan!
According to a source who wishes to remain anonymous, Uber Eats is set to launch in Pakistan by mid-February, 2019.
Uber Eats is a food delivery service similar to foodpanda and is already present in over one hundred cities across the world. It’s a separate app from Uber and allows you to order from hundreds of restaurants.
Rates for Uber Eats will be similar to other food delivery apps in Pakistan. It’s important to mention that Uber Eats has a similar “surge pricing” model to the main app. If a particular area has a lot of orders and there’s a shortage of riders, the price for the delivery will be higher.
One of the interesting things about Uber Eats in Pakistan is that Uber is considering giving electric bikes to riders to keep costs down. However, that’s still under debate and may or may not materialize when it launches in Pakistan by the coming February.
While the food delivery scene in Pakistan has become increasingly crowded, Uber Eats will be one of the few apps that have national coverage from the get-go.
