Google is taking a step forward with Uber, which is offering delivery in California for $40 a day, but the ride-hailing company is using Uber to get the job done.
The service is available in the California city of Sacramento, with prices starting at $40.
Uber said in a statement that it was not directly bidding on the Cali delivery service, but was partnering with CaliExpress, which has its own delivery company.
The service has not been widely adopted in California, but it has attracted customers who are willing to pay more to get home safely.
Uber said it would provide Cali with “a reliable, secure, and efficient service” and “provide Uber with the flexibility to schedule deliveries as necessary and expedite deliveries.”
Uber is also partnering with a Cali-based service called Cali Taxi, which will operate as UberX in California.
CaliExpress is the name of an Uber service that will allow customers to pay for rides via credit cards.
The company says that customers can also make UberX reservations online or in person.
Uber’s Cali service is similar to UberX, but UberX customers are charged $15 per trip and can choose to have their rides taken by a driver instead of paying the driver.
