UberRUSH shutting down at the end of June

Uber is shutting down its on-demand delivery service UberRUSH on 30 June.

The service has been operating in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago – primarily delivering same-day packages to e-commerce customers for participating merchants.

According to TechCrunch,  the company said in an email sent to its New York customers: “At Uber, we believe in making big bold bets, and while ending UberRUSH comes with some sadness, we will continue our mission of building reliable technology that serves people and cities all over the world.”

TechCrunch also quoted an Uber spokesperson as saying: “We’re winding down UberRUSH deliveries and ending services by the end of June.

“We’re thankful for our partners and hope the next three months will allow them to make arrangements for their delivery needs. We’re already applying a lot of the lessons we learned together to our UberEats food delivery business in over 200 global markets across more than 100,000 restaurants.”

As TechCrunch pointed out, the past few days have not brought much good news for the on-demand delivery sector in the big US cities, as the San Francisco-based Shyp announced it was closing down on 27 March.
