Uber has added a new and convenient service to their app users for a small fee.

Where were we before the convenience of using companies like Uber or Lyft. Whether you are going to the grocery store, drinking and need a designated driver or in a new town and need a quick ride. These types of services have proven their value to customers.

Ride-sharing apps have been one of the most successful businesses of the past decade. How many people use Uber? Statista reports that in 2017 around 49 million people used their service. Today, roughly 130 million people worldwide actively use Uber. That's significant growth and they want to keep growing to support and keep their users.

The ride-sharing industry is a competitive market and it looks like Uber made a change to help stand out among their competitors. According to their website, Uber will now pick up and return packages for you from your doorstep to UPS, FedEx or USPS locations for a flat rate fee of $5. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, people have gotten more comfortable with both ride-sharing apps and delivery services. This might save you a trip to the post office.
