Yesterday, we talked about Uber’s latest delivery service, UberRush. They are not the only rideshare company getting into the delivery game. Back in April, 2020, Lyft also announced a new delivery service called Essential Deliveries.
This new pilot program is aimed at government agencies, local non-profits, businesses and healthcare organizations and making deliveries of meals, groceries, life-sustaining medical supplies, hygiene products and home necessities to those in need, according to the Lyft Blog.
Currently, this service is being offered in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Orlando, Phoenix, San Francisco, San Diego, San Antonio, and Seattle. There is talk of expanding the service to non-profit organizations for deliveries from food banks, senior meals programs and even the Girl Scouts delivering their cookies. It will be interesting to see how this project moves forward.
