WASHINGTON — Uber’s restaurant delivery service expands its footprint a bit in the Washington metro, adding parts of Arlington County to its coverage.
The UberEATS app delivery area covers Ballston to Rosslyn, as far south as Pentagon City and as far west as Glebe Road. (See coverage map below.)
Uber says it is working with only a dozen or so restaurants in Arlington right now, but is adding more restaurants. Depending on the Arlington location, delivery from some D.C. restaurants may also be available, Uber’s Katlin Durkosh said.
The UberEATS app is separate from the Uber ride hailing app.
The food delivery service is available in both D.C. and parts of Arlington from 9 a.m. to midnight, with a flat $4.99 delivery charge. It says food can be delivered in as little as 10 minutes, depending on the participating restaurant.
Uber pays the driver and collects the delivery fee along with a commission from the restaurants.
Uber began testing the restaurant delivery app in Toronto earlier this year, and has rolled it out in other cities, including Los Angeles and Chicago.
