San Francisco, UberRUSH is Arriving Now

In hundreds of cities across the globe, you can press a button and get a ride in minutes. Now, through UberRUSH, business owners can use that same technology to get customers pretty much anything in minutes. Today with the launch of UberRUSH, every business in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco has the power to get customers what they want, when they want it.

“We are thrilled to launch UberRUSH in San Francisco to empower local businesses to grow by offering on-demand delivery services directly to their customers. Through UberRUSH, we are excited to share the combination of our operations network and our same-day delivery technology with our home city’s local businesses to expand their reach, lower costs, and improve the experience for their customers.”
– Susan Alban, San Francisco UberEVERYTHING General Manager

Why are we partnering with local businesses to improve delivery? Think about all the times you hop in the car to pick up groceries, house supplies, or Sunday night takeout. These little runs seem harmless but they add up. In fact, 20% of all trips in the US are just to move things from A to B – and we’re wasting thousands of hours and gallons taking them.

“UberRUSH enables on-demand delivery of Timbuk2’s made-to-order products. In just a few hours, we can receive a custom order for a one-of-a-kind bag, manufacture the product, and deliver it to our customer via bicycle messenger using local labor and technology. It’s fast, frictionless, and an amazing customer experience. And importantly, it supports made-in-San Francisco.”
– Patti Cazzato, Timbuk2 CEO

If every local business delivered, we’d all save time and energy. But most simply can’t. Day-to-day operations are already complicated and delivery can cause all sorts of logistical headaches. There has never been a simple local delivery solution. Until now.

Businesses that tap into UberRUSH will make getting anything in your city faster, more reliable, and more affordable than picking it up yourself. It’s time to save business owners the headache, save you the trip, and save us all a bit more time.
