Uber’s second pilot, Connect, will offer the in-app option to use its drivers to send personal items across town, allowing people to share their stockpiled toilet roll with needy friends or ship a laptop to a colleague. The service, which will be “contactless” so as to ensure safety, is on trial in 25 cities across the US, Australia and Mexico.

Uber Connect will be immediately available in four cities, namely, Kolkata, Guwahati, Jaipur and Gurgaon, so that residents of these cities can send and receive packages within the city, while maintaining social distancing. Whether it’s a favorite book, a birthday gift or cleaning supplies, let your kindred know you’re there for them by sending a package via “Uber Connect” through the Uber app.
Download the app – Get the free Uber app from the App Store or Google Play on your smartphone and open the app to create your account
After adding your pickup and delivery address, Uber Connect will appear in the Uber app as a new option in the vehicle selection scroller
You’ll be prompted to agree to package delivery T&Cs, and confirm that your item complies with those terms and request delivery
You’ll receive a notification once the driver is on their way to pick up your package. You can contact the driver directly for any special pickup or drop-off instructions
You can use the “Share My Trip” feature with your recipient so they can track the delivery and meet the driver to collect the package
