Uber launching bike courier service in Manhattan tomorrow

Uber will begin testing a new service in Manhattan tomorrow, but the new service isnt designed to get you around: instead, its launching a courier service called Uber Rush, which will let you hire bike and foot messenger to pick up your items and bring them to another location in the city. The service will only operate in Manhattan to start, and couriers wont be able to travel north of 110th Street — no higher than top of Central Park. Though Uber has dabbled in a number of eclectic professions for promotions and holidays, a courier service will be the first distinctly different core service that it offers, with all of its other products being different takes on taxi services. Its also fairly basic for now — only allowing customers to have products picked up from them, and not purchased for them as similar courier services do.
