Uber Eats Introduces "Walk" Delivery for Short Distance Delivery in Tokyo's 23 Wards
On June 22, 2021, Uber Eats will begin piloting a "walking" mechanism for short-distance deliveries in the 23 wards of Tokyo.
"Walk" delivery has already been introduced in several large cities abroad, including New York and Hong Kong.
Delivery on foot is expected to be efficient in the city center because it saves the space and trouble of parking bicycles and can use stairs and narrow alleys.
【How to Use】
Existing delivery partners can switch to on-walk delivery by "changing the vehicle" on the app screen in advance.
Also, a new delivery partner will be able to start delivery on Uber Eats without having a bike or motorbike if he chooses only "walk" as the delivery method.
Even if you choose to deliver on foot, Uber Eats' personal and objective liability insurance and injury compensation schemes will apply in the unlikely event of an accident during delivery.
This compensation program is funded by his Uber Eats and is not borne by the delivery partner.
