Uber plans to Deliver Food via Drone

Uber Elevate plans to deliver food via drone as early as this summer in San Diego.

Uber has been working closely with McDonalds and collected approvals to begin tests of delivering food by drone in the region of San Diego, California.



Uber Elevate Head of Flight Operations Luke Fischer, said:

“Our goal is to expand Uber Eats drone delivery so we can provide more options to more people at the tap of a button. We believe that Uber is uniquely positioned to take on this challenge as we’re able to leverage the Uber Eats network of restaurant partners and delivery partners as well as the aviation experience and technology of Uber Elevate.”

He added:

“We’ve been working closely with the FAA to ensure that we’re meeting requirements and prioritizing safety. From there, our goal is to expand Uber Eats drone delivery so we can provide more options to more people at the tap of a button. We believe that Uber is uniquely positioned to take on this challenge as we’re able to leverage the Uber Eats network of restaurant partners and delivery partners as well as the aviation experience and technology of Uber Elevate.”
