Uber Eats launches order-ahead, skip-the-line service in Toronto

May 28 2019, 7:34 pm

Today, Uber Eats will begin piloting a new service across Toronto.

“Pickup” lets users skip the line at restaurants by ordering ahead, enabling them to swiftly grab their meal when it’s ready.

The new function allows folks to place orders right through the Uber Eats app, and receive notifications when their food is ready for pickup.

Over 600 Toronto restaurants are participating in the Pickup pilot, including favourites like Magic Noodle, The Halal Guys, Basil Box, Sweet Jesus, Burrito Boys, and Bombay Roti.

Toronto is the first Canadian city to be included in the global pilot.

Availability will be rolled out at Toronto and GTA restaurants participating in the program over the next two weeks.

The order-ahead, skip-the-line service is already available in Toronto, through apps like Ritual.

With Uber Eats hopping aboard the no-waiting train, it looks like queuing up may soon be a thing of the past.
